“God willing tomorrow, the President of the Republic, will submit the list of MMDCEs to the Minister for Local Government, and same will soon be announced by the Minister.
Many a Ghanaian has been waiting patiently for the release of this list. While we acknowledge that expectations may be high on the part of some supporters of the various potential MMDCEs, It is also important that we come to terms with the fact that only one person will be mentioned as the one to man a district, municipality or a metropolitan assembly￼.
As members of the party, we must never lose sight of the fact that we may be heading towards the same destination but different directions and paths maybe adopted. We should strive to accommodate whoever has found favour in the eyes of the President.
It may be hurtful when the person or candidate you support loses out at the end of the day but what is important and must be held dear ￼is the fact that we are from the same womb, we must not become destructive agents during the confirmation of the nominated personalities.
Hopes maybe dashed, expectations would definitely not be met, but in all these, we must come to the realization that if the people we supported were also mentioned as against those nominated, we would have expected them and their supporters to support us.
Jackson Raine of Beastmaster fame said something profound; We didn’t create this world, we are only part of it, so whatever we do to it is done to ourselves. Putting it differently, we didn’t found this party, we are beneficiaries of it, so whatever we do to this party is done to ourselves.
Let’s welcome whatever names that get mentioned. We may have had our names or those of the people we support losing out, tomorrow, definitely, the sun will appear. There will be a sunny day, let’s patiently wait for our tomorrow, for tomorrow will surely come. P.K.Sarpong, Whispers from the Corridors of the Thinking Place.
