A Winner Declared Within A Margin of Error

The Outcome of Ghana’s Polls Didn’t Favour The Main Opposition Party.

2020 General Election has gone down as one of the most exciting and memorable in Ghana’s democratic history. Since the beginning of the 4th Republic, Ghanaians have had the opportunity to elect a leader every four years. Since the year 2000, electoral campaigns have been characterized by exciting theme songs composed by musicians for their respective parties.

John Agyekum Kuffour was thought to have had the best campaign theme song until Nana Akuffo Addo drove by with a much more enthusiastic anthem composed by celebrated Ghanaian musician Charles K Fosu popularly known as Daddy Lumba. Almost every Ghanaian danced to the tune; who doesn’t love some DL? Whether or not you were for “change” at the time; Daddy Lumba’s 2012 campaign song for the NPP was one worth adding to your playlist. As the whole nation literally grooved to that song, it appeared the race to the Jubilee House was a done deal – unfortunately that could not be the case. The NPP lost the election to the NDC. The NDC in 2016 decided to join the campaign theme song trail; releasing what is considered by all till this day as the best campaign song. Onaapo quickly became a victory anthem for the NPP when they won the election in 2016. Did this create a phenomenon of the one with the best song loses the election? Your guess maybe right; John Dramani Mahama lost again this but was it because of he had the best theme song or the worst message for Ghanaians?
