Ministerial Sauls-turned Pauls of 'AGAINST' stock serving in President J. A. Kufuor's government, are racing to outpace one another just to catch the eye of new NPP arrowhead Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, just so he places them 'WELL' in a future NPP government. And in the process, all kinds of bulls fatter than the most anaemic of elephants going by the princely names of SOKOTO GUDIRI and WEST AFRICAN and WEST AFRICAN DWARFS, are being carted to Nana Addo's plush East Legon mansion in Accra. THE SUN'S contact man at East LEGON has picked up signals of trucks carting these fattened cattle in the wee hours of the dawn to Nana Addo's mansion. Of the two breeds of bulls, the ministerial turn-coats have settled mostly on the SOKOTO GUDIRI, whose hunch is four times the weight of a TICO car. A Nana Addo aide who has had time to sit back and reflect on the goings-on could simply not believe the number of ministers trooping in the dead of the night. However THE SUN can state emphatically how as many as 90 percent of members of Parliament refused to honour Nana Addo's invitation, just two or so weeks ago when he needed them most as a booster to join his campaign trail. "Today they are supplying all kinds of gifts and pledging unceasingly, their unflinching support which had been denied Nana when he needed it most", he pointed out. The consistency with which the Sokoto Gudiri arrives at the mansion has saddled security charges at the NPP presidential candidates' house with a round-the-clock work, to discharge the cattle from the buckets of the articulator tracks. Deep-throat sources within Nana Addo's home say, the boss has gone ahead to order a re-inforcement of head-butchers from Kakasunanka and Lebanon all areas around Ashaiman to help slaughter the cattle to help enrich the protein content in guests’ stews and soups. Indeed when he chose to host all the other candidates who fought for the sole slot with him over lunch last Wednesday, there was an endless conveyor belt of meat supply on the plates of many. Verifiable sources say, while Nana Addo looks ahead to battling other presidential candidates for the presidency, he has had to spare a thought for employing FULANI HERDSMEN right in his house, to take care of the Trojan horse gifts judging by the growing trend. Not to be outdone in the scheming proceedings, skin-on-head Nana Addo sources have also dropped hints that two gentlemen with security blood in their veins have gone on ahead to pledge fantastic sums of money to help with Nana's national campaign, aside the bulls. Political think-tanks figure that much as those ministers are behaving strangely, the coming months of April, May and June should see the nocturnal SOKOTO GUDIRI donors stepping out in the open, even if it means defying the sitting President's orders, going by his often-trumpeted support for eventual loser, Alan Kyerematen. Those of Nana's political hangers-on who faithfully stood beside him when money from elsewhere looked to be dimming his campaign say, Nana has since then been constantly reading the verse in Genesis which says, God regretted for creating humans owing to our propensity to do a 180 degree turn almost without any sense of embarrassment. "This means that the issue of hypocrisy and double standards did not start today, and those of us who remained faithful throughout will always fight to straighten Nana Addo up, just so he does not fall into a ditch", one such hanger-on who threw executive caution to the wind and aligned with Nana Addo in the early days told THE SUN.
