At this stage I am very proud of my beloved country Ghana. Prelude to the 2016 elections every candidate was sure of winning . But seriously can you imagine what goes on in the thinking pattern of a person in power that loses election and will have to humbly concede defeat that person must be very humble and courageous I congratulate President John Dramani Mahama for this bold decision to fulfill his promise on conceding defeat when he loses and to the President elect Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo on his assumption to the highest office the land .This has indeed made Ghana as peaceful as ever after the elections because the accusation and counter accusations prelude to the elections i must be honest brought fears of possible violence during or after the elections . Fortunately the fears were allayed.
Meanwhile on the lighter side we saw how creative they were at campaigning from funny television political adverts to political evangelism seriously I was surprised at that they were on the streets preaching the political ideas of the parties they represent .
This characterized this years election with unique and very interesting happenings from in fighting within parties to last minute construction of roads and flyovers .And I must also admit this made me notice the thinking pattern of the Ghanaian voter and I hope the politicians draw lessons from the fact that the Ghanaian voter cannot be taken advantage of again. This is because the voter is watching you seriously your utterances and how you develop the country. The Ghanaian voter has his or her eyes widely opened and is very discerning as well.
At least despite our problems I am a very proud Ghanaian being a shining example to other African countries leaders especially to let go when they loose elections to make Africa a better place and not forgetting the efforts the observers both local and international observers for their efforts
