Open Thread on the Upcoming Ghanaian Elections
Consider this an open thread on the upcoming elections in Ghana. I predict that the NDC (National Democratic Congress) will again win the presidential election and acting president John Mahama will be confirmed in the post. But, the NPP (New Patriotic Party) which is running Nana Akufo-Addo as their presidential candidate has a better shot at defeating Mahama than it did of winning against the late John Mills. Both the NDC and NPP candidates are University of Ghana alumni. But, Mahama did his degree in history so our department played a key role in his intellectual development.
