That is not my proposition

1. What happened in the North, even if it were widespread, is no standard for measuring the validity of any election anywhere. It does not even rise to the level of coercion or force in the legal sense. You cannot go to court and argue that members were coerced or forced because they swore an oath to vote a certain way. They were not coerced or forced by any stretch of the imagination. They voluntarily took part in a stupid ritual which has no force of law. You may however argue that the election was rigged or that the results were skewed....if you have any evidence to support such a view.

2. You don't have to tell us what your article is about: your thrust is captured in your conclusion: "The confession or revelation by Bugri Naabu has not only damaged the said election, but puts a question mark on the results as well as damaged NPP’s credential as a party that believes in democracy and Ghana...."
This sweeping conclusion derived from a superstitious occurrence puts a question mark on your reasoning. So you would doubt the outcome of an election merely because some people swore an oath to vote a certain way?

3. Your article should have condemned Bugri-Naabu's infantile behavior and left the validity of the results intact. But you morphed the two issues and vacillated from your initial position. If you could be swayed by such foolish posturing, your wisdom is in doubt.
For your better understanding therefore, I will put my view more succinctly, " You are educated but cannot think well."
