Within the framework of Initiative Election Ghana, WATHI selects for its audience opinions from Ghanaian citizens published online and related to the upcoming presidential election.
The point is that it is the same stale dish that is served to Ghanaians every four or eight years, party after party, regardless of which party is in power. Alas, Ghanaians have failed to see this.
Of all her numerously written about Plans A, B, C, etc. to rig Election 2016 in favour of the NDC and President Mahama, she has in what amounts to the last straw that broke the camel’s back, resorted to disenfranchising the majority of Ghanaian electorates.
