All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.

35th President of the United States of America, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, commonly known as "Jack" ones said “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty”.

Just like any person will wish the betterment of Ghana in the coming year, founder and 2012 flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has added his voice to numerous Ghanaians who want to see a “Better Ghana” in 2014 as promised by the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) headed by President John Dramani Mahama.

Dr. Nduom, however, admitted 2013 has been the most challenging year in the history of Ghana’s politics, adding that “Ghanamanfo Abr3”, under the NDC government.

Below is an unedited wish of Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom on his Facebook wall for 2014…

I wish to join together with All Ghanaians to give thanks to God Almighty for His grace, guidance and forgiveness. Through all our challenges, He has kept this country together. Truly, the year 2013 has been a challenging one. Indeed, "Ghanamanfo Abre".

I continue to believe that we are a chosen people put on this special piece of land we call Ghana. Otherwise, how could we waste some of the best human and other natural resources such as gold, diamond, bauxite, oil, manganese, etc and still have hope for a better Ghana? Truly, God has been Good to the Ghanaian.

Under other circumstances, allegations of corruption, mismanagement and theft of both public and private resources as have been alleged in Ghana would have caused massive upheaval and unrest. But we Ghanaians have been spared. The sins of our leaders - government, public service, religious and business people have not been visited on the people. Our people have absorbed hikes in prices of electricity, water, petroleum products, VAT and are hoping for best. We are a special people.

I remain hopeful that better days are ahead of us. As a result, I have some serious wishes for 2014:

1. That all of us in leadership positions in the country fights and work hard to improve the living conditions of workers, the poor, aged and children.

2. That when we the people complain about difficulties that confront us as we live in our own country, leaders in government will show us some respect and talk to us in a manner to give us hope for a better tomorrow.

3. That President John D. Mahama will ensure that the 1992 Constitution is amended to allow the people to lead their own District/Municipal/Metropolitan Chief Executives.

4. That President John D. Mahama will ensure that the 1992 Constitution is amended to separate the Office of Attorney-General from the Ministry of Justice so that the Independent Prosecutor can lead a serious effort in the war against corruption.

5. That our country men and women will find it in their hearts to support Ghanaian enterprises to become stronger, more prosperous and that our government will support them through the judicious use of its purchasing power.

I wish all Ghanaians, our President, religious and private business leaders, good health, tolerance for each other's opinions and a good life in 2014. By the Grace of God.
