During the funeral of the late president John Evan Atta Mills, a group of doves were release at the independence square as part of the proceedings for his burial.

Some of the birds flew away while others returned to where they were released. For some strange reason which is still unknown, one of the doves decided to land on the former first lady Naadu Mills’ car.

Members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) among other Ghanaians read many meanings into that happening. The Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Ammisah-Arthur, even said it was a sign from the late president Mills that he was leaving Ghana as a stable an peaceful country.

According the Christian Bible, when Noah and his Ark endured the flood for 40days and 40nights, he sent forth a dove to see if the waters were abated from the face of the ground. The dove returned with an olive branch.

In another part of the Bible, when Jesus the Christ was baptized, the heavens were opened and John the Baptist saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and came to rest on Christ then John heard a voice from heaven saying “Behold this is my Son with whom I’m well pleased

During the National Delegate Congress which was held by the NDC at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi, there was another strange occurrence with another dove.

Some NDC party faithfuls who were in the ‘popular stands’ of the stadium were seen releasing doves but unknown to the President of the Republic of Ghana John Dramani Mahama, and the rest of the party faithfuls, a white dove flew from nowhere and sat of the shoulder of the president.

For some seconds, the crowd together with the John Mahama stirred at the bird not knowing what to think or what to do. The bird later took off.

In the history of Ghana and the NDC, this is the second time a dove has been related to the presidency. But the question on the lips of many Ghanaians including NDC party faithfuls is ‘what does the sitting of the white dove on the shoulder of the President of Ghana mean?’

Could it be related to the baptism of Jesus the Christ and God is trying to send a message to Ghana that the president John Mahama, is the one He has chosen to win the 2012 elections and rule His nation?

We will all have to wait for the results from the secrete ballot come December 2012.
