Elections, political parties need to learn from data other than being opinionated and inured against it. The trajectory to a presidential win has a classical record in y2008 1&2, y2012, you can spread the margins with y2000 (1st rnd). 2016 was an outlier based on records. Popular votes system doesn't bind PC and MP votes in correlation, to some degree, but not absolute. That's why EC chair declares for Presidential Elections without appending the records of MP votes.
 
Having much synergy in disputing results based on a piece of electoral college system in the evidential analogy, might lead to an emotional anti-climax. A facile idea of political parties, halve the number and MPs and expect a run-off, in the unlikely event of that not happening points to obvious irregularities has been proved to be flawed. Recasting ones' mind to expatiating on details of 5 out 8 elections under the 4th republic supports the current outcome.
 
To dispute results have a moderated analysis (margins of diff) on what points to a win. If you data is lopsided towards 'sentiments'/'perception' and/or feelings then a rethought is critical at that juncture. Popular votes system isn't complicated with sound polling reps raising questions/objections where it matters in a likely or unlikely event of irregularities.
 
Unless going to court is a face saving strategy for the presidential candidate to rekindle efforts for a come back, that effort crumbles each and everyday evidence of facts are pursued. Here is the thing, to win in court to some extent leads to disenfranchising other voters on basis of legal but skewed technicalities. The court will always hold against subversion in the least kind of disenfranchising others voters. If you have experienced elections & court related issues you don't want to be led trodden that path.

Campaigners for incumbents have disparaged their lead in identifying the signal from the noises. 

If you compute moderation factor model; -Free SHS policy, solving double tracking is key. 

-Economic policy, the Covid19 relief fund is key for traders/businesses. 

Solutions  pls!

What do I care if the trees are bare 

And the hills are dark

And the skies are gray

 

What do I care for chill in the air

For crows that cark

At the rough wind’s way

 

What do I care for the dead leaves there

Or the sullen road

By the sullen wood

 

There’s heart in my head

To bear my load!

So enough, the day is good!

The
Spectre of
Black Power by
Dr. Kwame
Nkrumah

The Spectre of Black Power is a formidable book and experience shared by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah the first president of Ghana 🇬🇭. He wrote this book while in exile in Guinea. Formerly published in 1968. 

 

The book talks about how Africans are ready to control and manage themselves without foreign control. But in many cases it turns to be abusive use of power on their own people. Also, being influenced by colonial masters for their selfish gains. This book has an interesting read. Get a copy at Amazon, Google books and WorldCat.org.

The old guys in early Ghana were good linguistics and had well fitted vocabulary in their sentence composition than contemporary ones. 

When you listen to Nkrumah, Afrifa, Acheampong, Rawlings... 

Somehow, they might have read a lot.

Nkrumah was overthrown even though he was considered as one of the best leaders in Africa. Mr. Kwesi Pratt cited the example of how things took a sad turn after so much development under Nkrumah. This in relation he cautioned the NPP of the overreliance on Free SHS. He made the statement on Kokrokoo programme on Peace FM today.

The NPP is upbeat about their Free Senior High School (SHS) policy giving them victory during the general elections on Monday, December 7. Due to successful implementation of the Free SHS a few things have been taken for granted by the leadership of Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo. In the wake of events of Special Prosecutor resigning and apathy among some members of NPP a lot of caution is needed in the process. 

According to Mr. Pratt, winning an election has got a lot to do with the choice of the electorate of a suitable candidate than it has to do with who introduced or implemented the free education programme. He made the statement of that "From the 1950s, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah introduced free compulsory basic education; enrollment in Secondary schools went up about nearly 1000 percent in the space of five years and so on but he was even overthrown," 

 

There is a lot one could take from the assertions of Mr. Pratt, if not anything at all we can cast our mind back to 2008, after a good performance of Mr. Kuffour between 2000 - 2008, however the NPP lost the election. A lot of caution has to be held high for NPP to win the 2020 elections.

I am special, ridicule cannot sway me

I am strong, obstacles cannot stop me

I hold my head high, proudly proclaiming my uniqueness 

I hold my pace, continuing forward through adversity 


I am proud of my culture and my heritage 

I am confident that I can achieve my every goal 

I am becoming all that I can be

I am the black child, I am a child of God


This was a Michal Wynn poem.

flight
lieutenant
jerry john
rawlings

Casting your mind’s eye back the political and economic instability between the period of early 1970s will give much credence to what the man Jerry John Rawlings was to become. He was in high early to mid 20s full of energy and able to spot the wrongdoings among the political elites, senior military men and leaders. In many instances he was a by-product of the crookedness of those who suppose to have had the moral right to do good for their people.

A young military officer, a flight lieutenant he was, knew there was some God given inherent passion and drive he could change things for the better. Led a failed coupe in May 15, 1979. Personally took sole blame for the was arrained before court martial and ready for execution. With the last minute benevoulence and exhubirant of junion military officers who stood their grounds and launch an offence to rescue him on June 4, 1979. Power was seized by his men and all was history.

In the course to reform the then "corrupt" system, went ahead to execute the senior military officers which was shocking and took a lot by surprise. Sent former 3 head of states to firing squad and several military officers as well. That was an era of serious purging. In an attempt to eliminate corrupt leadership and give the country a clean start. However, things were not smooth as it wanted, with limited knowledge in economics, the country was in turmoil. Very much unsafe, unstable and despirate for visionary and hope.

The "junior jesus" held an election, Hilla Limann won, handed over power and by December 31, 1981 launched another successful coup disrupting all politically stable progress made. Run for democratic elections and won in 1992 and 1996 convincingly, bringing his ostensibly term of office to 20years, unprecedented in the history of Ghana. But, the question one really wanted to ask is "did he fulfill his will?" or "was the will based on sound judgetment?" to offset the country from the path of corrupt leadership?

Between the year 2000 - 2008, former President Jerry John Rawlings men who he govern the country with were tried for various forms of corruption and financial loses to the state. Some died in prison, while others serve their jail term thus, Tsatsu Tsikata, Dan Abodakpi among others. The thought of his men being convicted for crimes and even execution of judges really was exhiliratingly difficult to ascertained about the moral compass of former President Rawlings. Was he too lenient on his men or it was at his blind side of things.

In which ever lenses you expatiate your insight on former president Rawlings, you cannot fail to admire the effort he brought to correct some wrongdoings in the political and military leaderhsip of this country and also the weakness of a man who could not stray his parochial aspiration to maintain the earlier stance of good governance and economic prosperity for the populace. Under his democratic governance, the economic indicators were disipated, turning Ghana into HIPC. Nonetheless, the man Flt. Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings had his shining time and did what was best looking at history in a snapshot of certain happenings, also was a man with litany of flaws. He passed on November 12 2020, a life well lived but arguable not well fulfilled.
