AKUFO-ADDO WILL TROUNCE MAHAMA WITH HIS FREE S.H.S PROGRAMME IN THE 2020 ELECTIONS
I cannot claim to be a better aficionado when it comes to our elections and how parties fare during elections, but my little knowledge on the matter, coupled with my experiences over the past few years have helped me to appreciate the fact that the 2020 elections have one key ingredient.
There might have been several determining factors to consider during elections, but there is one main factor that is driving the 2020 elections.
Forget about the other issues on radio and television, for there is one key factor that is sinking one party and projecting another one.
John Mahama has been touring the country with the hopes that the electorate would consider him but wherever he goes, he is confronted with the reality of Akufo-Addo’s Free S.H.S programme.
Most voters in the rural communities and smaller towns are voting for Akufo-Addo because of this policy.
While some people bear grudges against Mahama for opposing the Free S.H.S policy, others ask why they should vote for him to manage a policy he did not give birth to.
Their bone of contention is that the one who opposed the idea and derided it and ran it down cannot superintendent better a policy dreamt and implemented by another.
In their estimation, he who invents a product knows how to manage its affairs better. As indicated earlier, a child whose parents are alive is not given to another parent to cater for as an orphan.
Though John Dramani Mahama would have still lost the 2020 elections, Free S.H.S will widen the gap.
