Manasseh Azure pens emotional letter to John Mahama

Investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni in an attempt to douse the growing tension has penned an advice to former President John Dramani Mahama, who is the presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress.

According to him, the former president, while making sure he gets his due must also strive to maintain his reputation as the peaceful and tolerant leader he is known to be.

Manasseh’s letter follows the recent utterances by John Mahama suggesting that the NDC is poised to resist any attempt by the Electoral Commission and the ruling New Patriotic Party to rig the elections.

In a Facebook post cautioning the former president about his actions while he awaits final declaration by the EC, Manasseh wrote amongst other things; “If the election does not go your way, don’t allow yourself to be pushed to soil your reputation as an extremely tolerant and peaceful leader. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting that you should condone injustice in order to impress others.”

He added that the former president should use the appropriate channels to seek redress this period; “If you have reasonable suspicions of electoral fraud and a reasonable amount of evidence to back the suspicions, channel them to the appropriate quarters. Those quarters, no matter how flawed they may be, are certainly better than violence.”

Manasseh is convinced that John Mahama still stands a chance in the next election year if he maintains his reputation this year.

“There is 2024. You will still be younger than the age of your main contender when he first won. You have put up an impressive and admirable fight in this race. There are lessons in this election for you. Your opponents. And Ghanaians,” he wrote.

While the two main parties in the race have resorted to press conferences to vent address their issues, the NDC has been accused of inciting violence for asking their supporters to pour out on the streets to celebrate.

Meanwhile, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa has said that the commission will declare the result of the presidential election by the close day, Wednesday, December 9, 2020.

Read Manasseh’s full letter below:

Dear John Dramani Mahama,

If the election does not go your way, don’t allow yourself to be pushed to soil your reputation as an extremely tolerant and peaceful leader.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting that you should condone injustice in order to impress others.

A man, our wise elders say, may swallow phlegm for the fear of offending others, but no sane man swallows poison for the same reason. So I’m not saying you should allow yourself to be cheated in order to keep the image of peace and tolerance.

If you have reasonable suspicions of electoral fraud and a reasonable amount of evidence to back the suspicions, channel them to the appropriate quarters.

Those quarters, no matter how flawed they may be, are certainly better than violence.

Violence is like a bad rain. It does not fall on the roof of only your enemy. There is 2024. You will still be younger than the age of your main contender when he first won.

You have put up an impressive and admirable fight in this race. There are lessons in this election for you. Your opponents. And Ghanaians.

A man does not burn his barn because his wife has starved him of food. There is tomorrow, JM. And you stand a very good chance of winning the next election with ease.

Think about this. Think about the future. And the generations that look up to you.

Think about Ghana.

The lion and the antelope may have their differences, but neither of them would set the forest that shelters them ablaze.

Think about this before your next speech. Step. Or action.

Your friend,

Manasseh Azure Awuni.

PLEASE HELP! The Shocking Thing I Saw In My Father’s Wardrobe (Should I Be Worried?)

Hello guys, the background behind this story is lengthy so to spare you the trouble I’ll jump straight to the point.

My father although he has his flaws is a very religious, and I dare say principled man in some aspects.

He never misses church service. Went to bible school.

At one point he was even a house fellowship leader. He prays and fast often.

So on this day I was standing in the doorway to my dads room.

He wanted to send me on an errand ”I think”, so he opened his wardrobe to get the money.

Immediately he opened his Wardrobe I saw a BAT…yes BAT hanging upside down right there in his wardrobe.

In shock, I jumped and shouted

”daddy see bat see bat !!!”.

Guess what he did. He simply smiled and gently closed his wardrobe.

I have never been this confused. I saw a bat hanging upside down in his Wardrop and all he did was smile and gently closed the door.

I don’t know what to make of it. I have already concluded, there is no way on earth this is from God.

Up until this time I have never seen a bat up close in real-time.

The closest I’ve been was to watch them on television. Contemplate how scared and confused I am now.

I picked up an excuse and ran out of the house to go stay with my relative. It’s been a week since I left, and I’m still too scared to go back.

What do you folks make of this? How can a man who prays and fast and attends bible school have a BAT in his wardrobe? WTF !!

What Do You Think I Should Do?

It’s winter season and bathing seems like a task, doesn’t it? Well, how long can you go without showering? A day or two maximum? Turns out, you are nowhere close to this man who hasn’t bathed in over six decades.

Amou Haji is an 87-year-old man and he hasn’t taken a bath in 67 years. He resides in Dejgah which is a village in the Kermanshah province of Iran. He also looks like the Biblical Moses who fell down a chimney.

He is always covered in ash and dirt. He hasn’t taken a bath for nearly seven decades because he is scared of water. He is of the belief that if he will bathe, he will fall ill.

What is even more unusual is that his diet consists of rotten meat of dead animals, especially porcupines. He also enjoys smoking but it is not tobacco he prefers. He likes to smoke animal feces out of a rusty pipe.

According to Tehran Times, Haji decided to live an isolated life after he went through some emotional setbacks in his youth.

He wears a war helmet not to fight off enemies but to keep him warm during winters.

Human beings are complicated creatures.
