E-voting refers to an election or referendum that involves the use of electronic means in at least the casting of the vote. The introduction of e-voting raises some of the same challenges as are faced when applying electronics to any other subject, for example e-government. Politicians or administrators may perhaps expect that a paper version of a certain service or process can simply be taken and put on the Internet.
Unfortunately, the reality is more complex, and nowhere more so than with e-voting.

The 2012 Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has stated that the results of Junior High School students who sat for the recent Basic Education Certificate Examination give credence to why “I have made education, education, education, a high priority of an Akufo-Addo administration.”
According to the NPP flagbearer, “this year’s BECE results are at best, negatively, consistent with the results of previous years, except we have more people failing this year, and facing a very bleak future prospect.”

I enjoy reading biographies but I have over-enjoyed reading the autobiography of the Most Rev. Dr. Asante Antwi. His book, ‘Samuel Asante Antwi – a living story’ is 160-pages of courage, perseverance, patriotism, Christian teachings and achievements of a poor, village boy who saw the heavens as the limit and rose through the firmaments to become the First Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church, Ghana.
This autobiography can also be described as a biography of Ghana, from 1937, through the formation of the UGCC in 1947, the confidence and pride of a young, nation with an energetic leadership after Independence after 1957, the dictatorship of the 1960s, the short constitutional interludes, coups and more coups before the last push for the longest, most stable period of constitutional rule since 1957.

In his book, “By Nkrumah’s Side”, Tawiah Adamafio, a former confidante of Dr Kwame Nkrumah and Information Minister of the Convention People’s Party administration, who was later on to be tried and convicted for the Kulungugu assassination attempt on the life of Ghana’s first President, wrote of the nature of the CPP at the time:
“I knew their intrigues and jealousies, the vicious whispering campaigns and the rumour mongering, the deliberate name-smearing and wicked mud-slinging, the character assassination, the interminable inner party struggle, the incompetence and greed, the bribery and corruption.” more>>>
