The 2020 election will be Mr. Gane’s first shot at the presidency in Ghana.

A Chartered Accountant, Marricke Gane says that while he admits the quest to be president as an independent candidate is an arduous one, he believes it is possible that many Ghanaians are tired of the status quo of how governance has been done over the years between the two entrenched political parties, the NPP and the NDC.
