Awards for Success of Elections 08/09

On Joy FM the other day, Uncle Ebow Whyte mentioned three top winners for the success of the 2008/9 elections. He mentioned Dr. Afari Gyan, the people of Ghana, and Prof. Mills as the winners. Thanks for recognizing the contributions of these people to the success of the elections.

However, I have a different list for the top three winners. First, is God for letting loose his wisdom, understanding, and peace to prevail over this country. Second, the good people of Ghana that include, Dr. Afari Gyan, Prof. Mills, the Clergy, and all prominent people who used Godís words to prevail upon other people to reason with reality on the ground. And third, mathematics, whose methods and principles were used to make critical decisions.

The elections were all mathematics. I remember Joy FM being lambasted for using mathematics to project (predict) correctly the final outcome of the presidential run-off. We better begin to treat mathematics seriously.
