After the Election Fever... Back To Reality

Hello Fam!

I hope I've been missed o cos' as for me, I don miss you all scatter the whole place sef. Thanks Eya and jhazmyn for checking up on moi, I truly appreciate, God bless you!

As you all may have read, seen and heard, the Ghana elections which the whole of Africa was waiting for has come and gone. The voting was scheduled for the 7th but because of some faulty machines, the elections continued to the 8th at some of the places that encountered those technical problems... The process went on smoothly and on Sunday after a long wait and what seemed to be like  the nation was being held to ransom by the electoral commission (herein after called the EC), the EC finally announced his excellency John Dramani Mahama as the winner and president elect for Ghana, due to be sworn in by January 7, 2013.

Before I continue, let me tell you a little about the history of the John's ruling Ghana... we had flt Jerry John Rawlings, then John Agekum Kuffour and then came the late John Evans Atta Mills and now, another John! if you are wondering where I am going with all this, my 4year old son will now be known as and called John-Gabriel... Hehehehe, you just never know.

Now back to what I was saying earlier, after the declaration of the results, the main opposition which is NPP said they have reasons to believe that the elections were rigged and for that matter, is thinking seriously about suing the electoral commission to court to seek redress. 

This created some kinda tension as their supporters went on a peaceful demonstration amidst some few recorded acts of violence but as to whether all those acts were connected to the elections or not is not really known besides, a lot of people will take advantage of issues like this to do evil.

In all, I thank God that we as a country are still growing stronger despite our political affiliations, differences and pitfalls. May I also plead with you that, anytime you go down on your knees to pray, may you remember Ghana and Africa, because one way or the other, we are all connected...  we are all part of the same history... What hurts me hurts you... Very much.

Peace... I'm out!

    1. Maybe it's as a result of the kind of democracy we have adopted in Africa. We should learn to use what works for us...

    1. its everywhere o my dear.
      but a situation where one wins only 2 regions out of 10 and expects to be victorious (irrespective of the fact that politics is a game of numbers) is really far-fetched though.

  9. Hi Priscy,
    I was beginning to wonder whether you were putting together a huge post. I thought it is not like Priscy to disappear for this length of time, welcome back! I will pray for your country that the gospel spread because, as every Christian knows, the blessing of God is found only in Jesus as this world is under a curse.

  13. Welcome back and may Ghana experience peace, and abundance, including all of Africa. Above all, may righteousness flow out like the waters cover the seas in every nook and cranny of our land, and may godly leaders arise to lead us because righteousness exalts a nation. Love to your son. God bless you.
