Ghana: 'John Mahama Ladies' Congratulates President-Elect

Kumasi — The leadership and entire membership of the "John Dramani Mahama Ladies" has sent a message of congratulations to H. E. John Dramani Mahama, on the occasion of his declaration as the President-elect by the Electoral Commission (EC), following last Friday's polls.

The National Chairperson of the union, Madam Yvonne Franklin Owusu, said the membership, in a statement, said by this feat, the membership felt encouraged to champion the cause of the ruling party in the execution of the Better Ghana agenda.

She said the re-election of the President to continue his stewardship to the good people of Ghana was in recognition of the good works of his predecessor, and his resolve to execute the agenda of the government to the logical conclusion.

Madam Owusu pledged the union's unflinching support for the NDC government, and urged the President to pursue his vision for the development of Ghana.

She also urged the President not to be daunted by schemes by the opposition to derail the achievements of the government.

The women's leader hoped the government would intensify its pursuit for stability and creation of jobs for the total development of Ghana, for the benefit of all Ghanaians.

The National Chairperson also called for calm among NDC followers in the face of any provocation as they jubilate the victory at the December 7 polls.

Madam Owusu stressed the need for peace as a condition for healthy co-existence of Ghanaians, irrespective of their political affiliations, saying democracy could only strive in a peaceful atmosphere.

The John Dramani Mahama Ladies was formed in September this year to basically campaign vigorously for Mr. John Mahama's presidential bid in the December 7, 2012 general elections.

A final year Ghanaian student, Kwame Fynn, who is majoring in Economics, as well as applied Mathematics and Statistics at the Macalester College in the United States, is making Ghana proud out there.

Kwame Fynn, a former student of the Ghana International School in Accra, and son of the Administrator of the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF), has been spotted by the university as a young man to watch, who is full of potential that could be tapped for development and excellence in various fields of endeavour.

The university's position stems from the fact that Kwame Fynn's research paper on the career longevity of professional basketball players, had been used extensively by one of America's biggest selling and influential magazines, ESPN, which has found the research material very useful for lovers of basketball.

The university has also indicated its excitement as the research material is now a top result of a Google search of "NBA survival analysis" - pretty heady stuff for young statisticians, who need information on basketball.

Also, the research material has been accepted by NBA as valuable and credible material in the development of basketball.
