Ghana faces socio-economic problems that require solutions by experienced and committed leadership, not inexperienced and uncommitted leadership. This book is a brief socio-economic analysis of Ghana and a lesson for the NPP as to why it was "chased into the bush" in 2008, and to serve as a guide in the "return of the elephant into the city" in 2016. The contract with Ghana is an implied adherence and commitment to certain systematic public policies aimed at quickening the pace of Ghana's socio-economic development for which a political party is elected into office to prosecute. The NDC government has neglected this contract, and the NPP has to revive and prosecute it for the well-being of Ghanaians.
The Supreme Court petition of 2012 itself constituted an exonerative trial of the NDC government's narrative about the temperament, character, and disposition of the NPP presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo. The fact that the NDC government is presiding over unprecedented corruption scandals and financial indiscipline has tuned in voter's deep desire for change. This book serves as an intervention to help avoid election violence.
