Ghana must make a difference


candidates1Ghana goes to the polls to elect a new president on the 7th of December 2008. She remains the surest and only hope for Africa as others that went through similar exercise early this year failed to impress.  As the safest and peaceful country in West Africa, Ghanaians cannot afford to gamble with their enviable democracy. Already, tension is mounting in some parts of the country specifically the central and northern parts.

Already, tension is mounting in some parts of the country specifically the central and northern parts. The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is refusing to allow the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) student supporters to transfer their votes to their hometowns. This has brought all the agitations and unnecessary tension.

Ghanaians are generally peaceful. Although events preceding general elections raises blood pressure, we go through the electoral process without blood bath. Eight candidates are vying but the race is between four protagonists – NDC’s John Evans Atta-Mills, NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo, CPP’s Paa Kwesi Nduom and PNC’s Edward Mahama.

They have all pledged to accept the final results come election day in the name of peace. We need peace and we must not allow this election to put Ghana on fire.
