Ghanaian politicians have shown over the years that they are willing to do whatever it takes to win power, especially if they are contesting in tight elections.

Even those who build a reputation over many decades as tough and powerful individuals have no problem falling to the level of ordinary Ghanaians, if that is what it will take to win elections.

Here are some photos that detail the extent to which our politicians will go to win power.
