The Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, has expressed his party’s deep sense of apprehension about the secretive and silent manner with which the Electoral Commission is conducting affairs towards the 2012 elections, describing it as a recipe for disaster.

In the 2008 general elections Nana Akufo-Addo had to do four things, two positive and the other two negative. On the positive side, he had to campaign on President Kufuor’s record to justify why the NPP had to be allowed to continue ‘moving Ghana forward.’ Also, he had to tell Ghanaians what his message for the future was -- what he intended to do if given power.

President John Evans Atta Mills has already made history by being the first president to face a primary challenge. It is becoming increasingly likely that he will also become the first one-term president. When he finally becomes a one-term president, the political historians will propound various theories to explain his defeat.
I want to go on record as one of those who not only saw the president’s imminent defeat but also put forth seven (7) drivers of the prognosis.
