Tomorrow, October 18, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), will hold it National Delegates Congress to elect its flagbearer for the 2016 elections.
Not that the likely outcome of who is going to lead the party is not known, but as to whether that will inure to the benefit of the party in 2016, is another story we will tell post 2016 election.
We do not care who emerges victorious after the ballot is counted tomorrow, 2016 election has already being decided, President John Dramani Mahama, will win the election by a landslide as he did in 2012.
We will like to remind all the contestants, especially Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, who all political pundits and observers are tipping to win tomorrow, that there are only two outcome in any election, you either win or lose, so in as much as the other two contestants, who will accept defeat and congratulate him, he
will learn to do same when President Mahama trounces him again in 2016.
In 2012, his excuse and possible reason for going to the Supreme Court, was because the President only took three months to campaign to defeat him, in 2016 that will scenario will not be available.
We all accepted democracy as the means of governance, as things stand now, we have two dominant political parties, i.e. the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the NPP, for as long as we continue to entrench our democracy, these two political parties, will have the opportunity to govern. Unfortunately, in the NPP, they are fixated with one individual, who they think he is the panacea to the problems of this country and to him, he thinks it is his birthright to be President.
We wish the outcome of tomorrow’s election will be different, because the NPP need a new face to restore sanity and bring discipline in the party, but wishes as they say are not horses.
We can only wish the party well and hope that they come out of the National Delegates Election united for the sake of our democracy.
