Granted, you own a company called GHANA LIMITED. Your company has not been managed well to your satisfaction by the current CEO. In fact your company is highly indebted.
As a result, you set out to advertise to recruit a very competent CEO to manage it for you so that the company could be transformed into a more profitable company that could be successfully bequeathed to your children in the future.
After public advertisement in the newspapers, three interested applicants put in their bids to be considered for the CEO position. Subsequently, you set the interview date for the three applicants.
On the day of the interview, all three applicants came for the interview. However, each of them came by a different means of transport.
The first person came with a Toyota car. The second person came with a Nissan car. The third person came without a car.
Now, in assessing their capabilities to ascertain which of them is more qualified and competent to transform your company to the height you want it to be, what would you consider as the most important factor?
- Would you consider the means (vehicles) by which they came for the interview as important?
- Or, you would consider the quality of their CVs, their demonstrable track records, their managerial experiences and competences, and their plans and visions for your company.
In the 2024 election, three main people would appear on the ballot paper, alongside other candidates. Mahama, Alan, and Bawumia or Ken.
One will come using the NPP as a vehicle. One will also come using the NDC as a vehicle. Yet, one will come as an independent candidate on the back of a movement.
QUESTION: What should be the most important factor to consider in choosing one to be the CEO of the country?
a. The party (vehicle) on which they come
b. The person’s track record, vision, and plan for the country
FACT: No country has developed because of political parties. Countries have developed because of transformational and visionary leaders.
We can’t continue to do the same thing over and over again and expect to have a different outcome
