Security Services Must Put Ghana First As They Vote

The Security Services The Security Services

Today, December 1, members of the security services, as well as some section of Ghanaians, who have special duties on December 7, will turn out to cast their ballot.

The outcome of the election, will set to the stage for who will govern the country for the next four years.

Although, they are 12 candidates on the ballot, the election will basically be an all-out race between the incumbent Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Ironically, four years ago, the roles were switched with John Dramani Mahama being the incumbent, while Akufo-Addo, was the opposition leader.

The December 7 election, is to put to rest, who among the two is the best person for this country. Fortunately, we have the records of both gentlemen in power and so the decision is an easy and simple one.

As a newspaper we can say without iota of doubt that, John Dramani Mahama of the NDC, is the best man for the job. His record in office surpasses that of his successor, who has borrowed more than him, with little to show for.

Our men in uniform, who have sworn an oath to defend this country at the peril of their lives, must demonstrate that commitment by coming out in their numbers today to vote for John Mahama.

The future of this country is at stake, they have a duty to safeguard the heritage of the unborn generations.

We also call on the Electoral Commission (EC) to use the special voting today, to make a statement in order to assure the rest of us that, they are ready for the general elections next Monday. Free, fair and credible elections should be the norm and not the exception.

This newspaper had previously frowned at the perceived bias of the election management body, we are appealing to them to be neutral.

Ghanaians expect nothing less.
