I will accept the 2020 elections results- President

President Nana Akufo- Addo has said he will accept the results of the December 7, 2020, which comes off in three days time.

In a peace message at the 3rd High-Level Meeting of the Presidential Elections Peace Pact 2020 on Friday, 4 December 2020 held in Accra, the President said “We, in the NPP, want a credible election, conducted in a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. We are certain we have a track record that will make Ghanaians vote to renew our mandate. Just as it was in 2016, we want this victory to be sweet and incontestable”.

“I have said that we believe in elections, and I am happy to give my word that we shall accept the verdict of the people of Ghana. Above all, I pledge that the peace, unity and safety of Ghana will be our primary consideration.” he further said.

Meanwhile, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Mahama said the current government’s “refusal to sanction persons involved in assaulting an Honourable Member of Parliament and injuring scores of people” during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election over a year ago, “remains one of the darkest days in our democratic history”.

He also said the “reckless remarks by leading members of the ruling party that the unfortunate events of Ayawaso West Wuogun were just a dress rehearsal for the actual election, do not inspire confidence for the delivery of a peaceful election. As we end our campaigns tomorrow and prepare to vote on Monday, I pledge to ensure peace and preserve the stability of our dear nation. Elections are about counting heads not cutting heads. And, so, we will work toward peace.”
