Speculation galore!


Yaw, if positioning himself is preferable to manipulation, that is fine. I also accept that Nana Akufo-Addo will win the primaries if he contests. However, I have no illusion that if he stays in London unconcerned without ensuring that he has positioned himself to win, he will win. That means making sure that people who are mostly likely to vote for him are elected. That is what he is doing through surrogates like Jake and Sir John and that is what I referred to as manipulation. It is even so when he tries to creates the impression that his absence means he has nothing to do with the impending elections. Let's call it positioning himself.
