NANA KONADU – DON’T STEP DOWN, PLEASE – IF YOU DON’T WANT

NANA KONADU – DON’T STEP DOWN, PLEASE – IF YOU DON’T WANT

HARDLY HAS EX-PRESIDENT HIS EXCELLENCY FLT. LIEUTENANT J.J. RAWLINGS HAS DIED [R.I.P.], DEMANDS HAVE COME UP. SOME OF THESE VOICES – OF COURSE FROM MEN – FOCUS ON HIS WIFE NANA KONADU. THEY ASK HER TO STEP DOWN AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE FOR THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY [NDP]. LEAVE HER IN PEACE!

NANA KONADU WILL SURELY KNOW HERSELF WHAT SHE HAS TO DO, AND WHAT SHE WANTS TO DO. IT’S A TYPICAL MALE BEHAVIOUR TO TRY TO INTERVENE IN HER DECISION PROCESS. A WOMAN HAS TO MOURN HER HUSBAND IN CASE HE DIES. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE SHE SHOULD DO.

ON THE OTHER HAND, WOULD YOU HAVE ASKED NANA AKUFFO ADDO TO STEP DOWN IF HIS WIFE WOULD HAVE DIED?

WOULD YOU HAVE ASKED JOHN DRAMANI MAHAMA TO STEP DOWN IF HIS WIFE WOULD HAVE DIED?

SURELY NOT; IT’S A SIGN OF STRENGTH IF MALE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES GO ON UN DIFFICULT TIMES FOR THEMSELVES. WITH WOMEN IT’S DIFFERENT: THEY ARE WEAKENED BY THE DEATH OF HER HUSBAND. THEREFORE, THEY SHOULDN’T GO ON. THE QUESTION IS: ARE MEN NOT WEAKENED BY THE DEATH OF THEIR WIFE?

THE ANSWER IS: PROBABLY THEY ARE. BUT DO WOMEN NEED UN-ASKED-FOR ADVICE IN DIFFICULT TIMES? PROBABLY ALSO NOT. THEREFORE, MY ADVICE TO ALL OF THOSE “ADVISORS”: LEAVE NANA KONADU IN PEACE!

AND TO NANA KONADU AGYEMANG RAWLINGS: MY SINCERE CONDOLENCES. YOUR HUSBAND WAS A GREAT MAN, AN ICON FOR GHANA FURTHERMORE, YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS FOR YOURSELF. THE WORLD NEEDS WOMEN LIKE YOU, AND SHOW THEM YOUR STRENGTH. AMONG ALL THE TROUBLES YOU MIGHT BE IN AT THE MOMENT, KEEP TO THE SAYING OF A GREAT FOOTBALL COACH.

LEWWE GEHD WEIDER! [LIFE IS GOING ON]

NANA KONADU – DON’T STEP DOWN, PLEASE – IF YOU DON’T WANT.

THIS ACCOUNTS FOR YOU AND FOR ALL WOMEN WHO HAVE LOST THEIR HUSBANDS.

AYEKOO JERRY JOHN RAWLINGS, AND ABOVE ALL, ALL WOMEN IN GHANA AND ALL OVER THE WORLD!
