Ghanaian Politics And Rumour Mongering

The article titled, “Akufo-Addo Sneaks To T.B. Joshua” and published in Daily Post of 22nd August, 2012 was another in the series of political pieces purportedly crafted by some political midgets to attack Nigeria’s popular prophet, T.B. Joshua.

The world has remained increasingly shocked by the high level of political mimicry and treachery which some campaign coordinators and desperate political stalwarts demonstrated so far, forgetting that Ghana’s independence happened in 1957 as a leading country which ought to be respected by all others.

The crafty and power-obsessed political campaigners have decided, in their lack of wisdom, to keep attacking TB Joshua and his church as if they cannot think beyond their nose and embark on creative projects and electoral matters which could score them higher than the laughable rascality, mischief and scrawny commitments which they have shown so far.

Politics in Ghana, today, ought to be played by wise and quotable people; people with absolute confidence in their programmes for the masses and their ability to positively transform the society. These should be patriots who rely on truth and sincerity of purpose to project themselves and vision. The great names in Ghana’s political history would have helplessly turned in their graves with the way and manner recent political rapscallions and nitwits are going about politics in Ghana.

Frankly, some of the articles which people read in our newspapers, magazines and cyberspace these days are a collection of kindergarten pieces which should invoke shame in the Ghanaians who may read them. Rather than play politics of maturity and focus and discuss salient issues which will affect the lives of Ghanaians in consonance with the demands of the 21st century, some of our politicians and writers have become specialists in selling odious theories as agents of opposition; they attack fellow politicians using tools of lies, fabrications and intellectual conjurations without a foundation in truth and discipline.


While Ghanaians in all walks of life wait patiently to be told what our political parties have for us as manifestoes, what has kept bothering them in the issue of T.B. Joshua and his church in Lagos, Nigeria and one wonders how blackmail and political immaturity could be pushed to the doorsteps of a Nigerian who is not eligible to vote in the Ghana elections. To say the least, the pestilential politics played by some of our politicians could not have been an issue even in Siberia. Yet, Ghana should have a place in Africa’s history as a leading country and groomed by the late, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

Common sense dictates that politics in Ghana should be about crucial issues of development, which include the elimination of poverty and criminality and entrenchment of interest in education, tourism, and development of the rural areas. We should move up from what Prof. Mills left behind, and practice politics of patriotism and not amateurism, of sincerity and seriousness of purpose and not egotism and satanic megalomania. For God’s sake, T.B. Joshua and those he prays for should not be our concern as Ghanaians, but what benefits awaits us after the elections must have taken place, and how we should maintain peace and order in our country. How ‘serious minded’ politicians should see TB Joshua as an election matter remains to be understood. While the respected man of God should be allowed to preach and teach Jesus Christ all over the world, Ghanaians should also get serious with their politics and what the outcome of the elections should be. A word is enough for the wise.

The late HE Professor John Evans Atta Mills of Ghana

The state funeral service of the late Ghanaian President, Professor John Evan Atta Mills (1944-2012) on Friday 10th August, 2012 had brought diverse people from all over the world, including African leaders. It was one event which moved Ghanaians and the international visitors to tears by virtue of the late president’s personal acumen, sincerity of purpose and focused political career and achievements for the Republic of Ghana, the first African country to attain independence in 1957.

However, why some people decided to shift attention to Prophet T.B. Joshua of The SCOAN, Nigeria, is what is really baffling. One article which was written to openly castigate the man of God, titled, “Ghanaians Vilify Prophet T.B. Joshua” has just been posted on the net, with all signs of evil insinuations, envy and hatred spread out on the page.

According to the writer of the article, Ghanaians allegedly wondered how far Joshua performed as the spiritual father of the late president and even whether president Mills “faith in TB Joshua’s healing power stopped him seeking a more comprehensive treatment for his throat cancer”.

But, though President Mills and Prophet T.B. Joshua shared a spiritual relationship, we wonder how such could have amounted to the late president paying tithes to Prophet TB Joshua from the Ghanaian treasury? Was President Mills the only head of Government to ever make Joshua a spiritual partner? Or was it that Mills was so poor he had to depend on the Ghanaian treasury to pay tithes to a church? Have other world leaders no religions of theirs, to which they give their time and resources? Does that make them steal from their nations’ treasury to serve as tithes anywhere?

And as for his health, did Prof Mills not seek comprehensive treatment for his throat cancer, if that was what he had, in well–known hospitals? Was it documented anywhere that T.B Joshua stopped Prof Mills from seeking medical attention in any part of the world? Did Joshua tell the world that he stopped Prof Mills in seeking medical attention? Are the details not carefully spelt out in his recent sermon, titled “A True Prophet”?

Why also should anyone be concerned with how TB Joshua flew to Ghana as long as he paid his last respects to a great father, inspirer and leader being buried? And did Joshua ever suggest that Ghanaians should never “bother carrying out a probe on President Mills’ death”?  Where did he say this, and to whom, and on what occasion?

It is good to remind writers of mischievous articles, who mock the dead, that God insists always: “Do not touch my anointed and do my prophets no harm”. Anybody who ever tries to assassinate the character and integrity of a man of God waits for His wrath, because it is known that TB Joshua does not possess a private jet. We sincerely acknowledge the genuine interest of those Ghanaians who truly see him as a man of God.

Meanwhile, let us wait on God alone to choose a spiritual motivator for the new President in Ghana, John Mahama.

It is equally important that these sponsored writers of diatribes should allow the dear President to rest in peace while they should acknowledge that Joshua is a deep lover of Ghana and he is not a politician contesting political posts. He is a revered man of God.
