When the winds blow, one can be assured that the stench of rot and filth will take over everywhere. Figuratively, in effect it busts the filthy and disgusts the clean.

In the wake of the massive election fraud, vote theft, coercion, and sheer state terrorism perpetrated by the NDC government of John Mahama, pre and post-elections 2012, Honourable Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo peacefully resorted to the rule of law. He sought redress via the Supreme Court, an act that confirmed beyond reasonable doubt that he does not condone violence or terrorism.

As the election petition raged on in court, adjudicated by a nine member panel four of whom were of the highest integrity, a dissenting judge, Justice Atuguba, seemed to carry himself in the most callous and haughty manner ever, making foolish most of the cogent evidence adduced by lawyers of the petitioners, as was seen by majority of Ghanaians. That notwithstanding, the affront to civility and breach of the sacrosanctity of our constitution was flagrantly exhibited insouciantly, which is really not surprising giving the dishonest nature of the ruling party. The false testimony by an unstable minded secretary of the NDC, Asiedu Ntetia, and a lying elder of society heading the Electoral Commission at the time, Dr Afari Gyan, were really vexatious and in bad taste. Their attitudes were reminiscent of the glaring hypocrisy of a bunch of numskulls who refused to wean from their massive debauchery as they drunkenly engaged in the most unprecedented corruption Ghana has ever had to suffer.

Yesterday, four years on, the Ministry of the Interior produced a statement, unprofessionally written, inconsistently told, and flagrantly insulting of the Ghanaian’s faculties. It however indirectly vindicated the petitioners and clarified the notion that elections 2012 were rigged and so was the judgment of the subsequent petition. The Minister of the Interior stated unequivocally (and he confirmed same to be true) that STL was a company contracted by the electoral commission of Ghana to do electronic collation of the election results. However, both Asiedu Nketia and Afari Gyan testified in denial of the incontrovertible fact, as believed by majority of Ghanaians at the time, that STL was really contracted by the EC to collate election results electronically, that they, the lying duo, were said to have presided over.

When under oath a witness tells palpable lies in court in an attempt to sway a ruling in a certain direction, then that person has committed perjury; and perjury is punishable by law. In fact, under the circumstances of the election petition of 2012, perjury would necessarily amount to TREASON that is punishable in Ghana by death at the gallows or firing squad.

We call on the BNI, Bureau of National Investigation, to uphold its dignity and correct the new term given it by the good people of this country, “Bureau of National Intimidation”. The BNI must as a matter of urgency arrest Dr Afari Gyan and Asiedu Nketia for the possible treason of perjury with the intent to cause a civil war in this country in order to maintain the NDC’s hold on power by all means. If found culpable, they must be made to face the gallows or experience the barrage of bullets that their former Boss, JJ Rawlings, hailed on innocent Ghanaians in the NDC’s fury of terrorism, 1979 and 1981. Perjury must not go unpunished, and even though the situation prevailing in our country is cosmetically inconsistent with the reality on the ground, the peace that we enjoy today is the result of one law abiding citizen’s acceptance of the rule of law that he holds in high esteem, Honourable Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo-Addo.

Unlike many lawless African leaders the likes of whom we find manning the various arms of government in Ghana today, and the BNI too, Nana Akufo-Addo took his fight to the court and not the streets, contrary to the violent terrorism that the NDC would have unleashed on the nation had the shoes switched feet.

For the sake of patriotism and loyalty to mother Ghana, for the respect for our constitution and the blood that our ancestors spilled to bring us to where we are today, we beseech the authorities to arrest Asiedu Nketia and Dr Afari Gyan for committing perjury that would have slipped our nation into the abyss of death and destruction.
