The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC’s) love for propaganda has ascended to another realm.
It has assumed a celestial form, with Angels Gabriel and Michael among others, given roles by the propagandists as the late President Mills joins their ranks.
Woe betides any Man of God who raises a voice against the blasphemy.
The scars left on Bishop Dag Heward-Mills when he expressed concern about the development are still visible on his name even as the Man of God shows no remorse for doing what he did. They descended upon him with all the recklessness one can think of.
The angelic fiction the propagandists are engaged in is fueled by an inordinate obsession to win sympathy votes from the Ghanaian electorate as the December date for voting draws near.
Just how this goal can be achieved through necromantic propaganda is yet to be comprehended by all those who witness the crazy project unfold.
A documentary about the late president as he heads towards heaven to do his celestial duties on the orders of his Father, is now the subject of vile discussion among people. The originators of the script and pictures must be ashamed of themselves as they toy with Christian values for political points.
It is the latest in a series of attempts to isolate the late president from mortals when he was alive and create in the image of angels. As someone who, in their estimation, was infallible, they have already judged him and confined him to heaven where, as they put it, he has been assigned celestial duties.
If spiritual matters can be reduced to what we are being fed on the screens because of electoral votes, it shows the extent to which people can go to win elections. It is not surprising therefore when rumours about people making nocturnal visits to burial grounds to satisfy demands of sorcerers are thrown into the air. Black rings supported by plasters and weird things on bodies of power-seeking people are no longer strange things to behold.
As for the deceased whose image is at the centre of the morbid propaganda, he must be squirming in his grave over the uncanny politicization of his death as his Methodist priests watch helplessly, afraid to complain for fear of being attacked by uncouth youthful politicians in the corridors of power.
Ghanaians should not be surprised when his tomb is turned into a spot for political pilgrimage in the future, especially when a voodoo man somewhere in Cotonou puts that out as a requirement for winning votes.
With letters being written and purportedly posted to the late president in heaven, the need to examine the heads of some politicians cannot be overlooked.
