Professor Heads To Tain Constituency
NDC Leader and Presidential Candidate, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, will be heading out to the Tain Constituency tomorrow, Wednesday, December 30 2008.
Per the declaration of the Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Djan, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, is in the lead with a 50.13% margin.
In absolute figure terms, in spite of all the questionable figures that the NPP produced from its Ashanti Region stronghold, Professor Mills is leading Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo with 23,055 votes.
The Tain Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region, is already on the side of the NDC; evidenced by the 16,211 figure given to the NDC during the first round as opposed to the 14,935 the NPP got.
Mathematically, and assuming that all the 53,890 registered voters cast their votes, Professor Mills needs 15,000 to still be ahead of Nana Akufo-Addo.
So with the 16,211 Professor Mills got in the first round, it is clear that Nana Akufo-Addo cannot defeat Professor Mills.
For the records, during the first round, 31,614 out of the 53,890 voted.
Also, the second round figures show that Professor Mills appreciated everywhere he won in the first round whiles Nana Akufo-Addo hemorrhaged in lots of places; it is more than likely that same scenario shall unfold in the Tain constituency.
We are assuring Ghanaians that Professor Mills, as he has been from day one, knows that the goodwill of the majority of Ghanaians is on his side.
The change process began on 7th December, it was consolidated on 28th December, and on January 2nd, the Tain Constituency will surely help complete the Change process.
Change has come to Ghana and after January 7th, when Professor John Evans Atta Mills takes over as President of the Republic, the Better Ghana agenda shall start.
