2012 Presidential Candidate on the ticket of the Convention People Party (CPP), Dr. Abu Sakara Foster has made analysis on the possible outcome of the 2020 general elections.
According to him, as it stands now all the odds favor the ruling New Patriotic Party’s Presidential candidate, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo.
He however said that people should not be swayed by who is likely to win the elections to cast their vote but shoul dmake assesment of both Nana Addo and the NDC’s John Dramani Mahama before they settle on any decsion.
As it becomes clear that Nana and NPP are in a firm position to win the 2020 election defections and declarations from the wood works will emerge with increased frequency.
It is now that you will discern the opportunists, charlattans and mercenaries some of who are so called competitors.
What is clear is what we have known all along. It was only ever a two horse race with a slight chance that a wounded and tired NDC still ridden by a rejected candidate was the only other option.
The voters are not enthused or amused by these two options but what for do?
An independent alternative cannot be marshalled by wishful thinking, without significant amounts of money (millions of USD). That is the naked truth!!!
So with all strategies and efforts for an independent reform based agenda spent, we are realistically looking at Mr Nana of Mr Mahama.
Either way the odds favor Nana but the real question is what do either of them offer that would justify your effort to vote?
Which one would better serve the national interest objectives and how would one secure committment in return for one’s vote.
We must each think about this reality as we go to vote based on our individual choices.
We should not be easily swayed by wanting to be with the winner without considetation of the desired outcomes.
It is the only way to keep your conscience. No matter the outcome, you will know that you voted for a candidate based on ideals you hold dear.
Good voting and let us keep in touch. The fight continues after election.
