Food for Thought for the NDC's leadership?

What an odd political party the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is sometimes. It is most unfortunate that the leaders of the NDC seldom recognise that there is political advantage in every difficult situation that crops up - no matter how terrible that  might appear to be. The question is: Why plan to march against the dismissal of Charlotte Osei - when the good lady herself has accepted the president's lawful decision to relieve her of her post as Electoral Commissioner: daft though her removal from office is politically?

Instead of organising a march to demonstrate against the president's decision, what a political party with a creative leadership that does original thinking would be doing, in the aftermath of Charlotte Osei's dismissal, would be to plan to build a Command Centre which in future would enable the NDC to monitor all polling centres across the nation simultaneously, during  elections. Ditto use cutting-edge facial recognition software to track all registered voters listed in the voter's register, to ensure that rigging does not occur in Ghanaian elections any longer. Haaba.

For their information, if they go to 112 Spintext Road, they will be told how to contact the Ghanaian-American owners of Roudofa Ghana Limited, which like any good corporate citizen of the Republic of Ghana, is politically neutral, and thus serves all political parties that approach it for solutions to  challenges those parties face. As it happens, one of the founders of Roudofa Ghana Limited, was responsible for building and deploying  America's most modern private-sector owned Command Centre. It is actually operated by Interpark - which he was instrumental in turning into a major player in the U.S. car parking industry. Food for thought for the NDC's leadership, perhaps? Hmmm, Oman Ghana - eyeasem o: asem kesie ebeba debi ankasa.
