Come January 7 2017, Ghana will be inaugurating a new president - Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo.
The victory of Nana Addo has attracted shock among the NDC camp as President Mahama's loss remains the most shocking political defeats in Ghana's 4th republic. But what happens should President Mahama had won the 2016 general elections?
We find out here!
1. 2017 would look "normal" for Ghanaians who wanted "change" in the elections. This means that President Mahama would just be continuing his tenure of office.
2. Should Mahama had won the elections, Ghanaians would have expected a ministerial reshuffle under the NDC administration. Mahama would have employed new minds and fresh ideas to manage his administration.
3. 2017 would have seen students at various schools now study with tablets. This was contained in Mahama's NDC manifesto.
4. Nothing much serious in 2017 but President Mahama had promised to construct public toilets in every community under his next tenure, this could have seen an end to the menace of open defecation in the country.
President Mahama will definitely be missed come the next 4 years of his being out of office. We wish him well as he embarks on his "long and restful leave".
