Members of the Press, Fellow Ghanaian Youths, Ladies and Gentlemen, Youth For Mahama Ashanti has observed with keen interest the recent political and legal happenings in Kenya. We as a result would like to counsel Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo and the New Patriotic Party to learn from the heroic acceptance of defeat by Mr. Raila Amolo Odinga in a peaceful and diplomatic manner.
Youth For Mahama Ashanti observes that even though Kenya and Ghana are two separate sovereign countries, the positive aspect of the experiences of any of these two countries could be learnt by the other.
It would be recalled, Ladies and Gentlemen, that, Mr. Raila Odinga (former Prime Minister, Kenya) sue Uhuru Kenyata and the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission over the declaration of the outcome of the just ended Kenya?s election which saw H.E Uhuru Kenyatta winning 50.07% of the total valid vote cast and Mr Raila Odinga obtaining 33.3%.
Mr. Raila Odinga was apparently aggrieved, describing the election as fraudulent and tainted but chose the legal path by contesting the results in Kenya?s Supreme Court (the highest court of that land) seeking for the annulment of the results of some of the polling centers. The court upheld the outcome of the elections on 30th March, 2013 thereby declaring H.E Uhuru Kenyatta winner and dismissed the petition filled by the petitioner Mr. Raila Odinga.
In a razor-sharp and emotional response, Mr. Odinga accepted the verdict of the Kenya?s supreme court, congratulated H.E Uhuru Kenyatta and promises to ?? find peaceful ways to end a row over poll results? and appeal to his supporters to remain tranquil. This in the view of Youth For Mahama Ashanti, is a show of maturity, diplomacy and love for one?s country and we applaud Mr. Raila Odinga for that.
Youth For Mahama Ashanti as a result will like to advice Nana Akufo Addo and the New Patriotic Party to learn from the conducts of Mr. Raila Odinga and prepare their minds and that of their supporters to accept the verdict of the Ghana?s Supreme Court over their election petition which will verily not go their way.
We are appealing to H.E John Dramani Mahama to put the security apparatus on strict red alert to be able to respond resolutely and unfalteringly without fear or favour to any violent and dead end actions that Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP may employ in reacting to their defeat at the Supreme Court of Ghana.
Youth For Mahama Ashanti can to assure Nana Akufo Addo, Hon. Jake Obetsebi Lamptey and Hon. Mawumadu Bawumia and all troublemakers in the NPP of our preparedness to drag them before the International Criminal Court in the Hague if they and their supporters refuse to accept the verdict of the Ghana?s Supreme Court when it is finally handed down and indulge in any violent and dead end actions to the detriment peace and security Ghanaians are enjoying under H.E John Dramani Mahama and the NDC Better Ghana administration.
Thanks and Long Live Ghana.
