President John Dramani Mahama
President John Dramani Mahama has urged all supporters and members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to continue resisting any provocation from their opponents with just a few days to the 7 December presidential and parliamentary elections.
According to him, all his party members need to do is to cast their ballot and wait for the results.
“Don’t let anybody provoke you and create any violence. On 7 December, you cast your vote for JM and the parliamentary candidate,” Mr Mahama tweeted.
He added: “Let’s continue to ignore all forms of provocation especially on Election Day. Ours is simply to vote and wait for the results.”
Ghanaians are electing a new president and 275 MPs on Wednesday 7 December. The stakes are high for the two frontrunners: Mr Mahama and the main opposition NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo.
The election was preceded by a special voting exercise on December 1 conducted for members of the security agencies and other professional bodies including the media and EC officials who will be performing key roles on Election Day.
However, due to the omission of some names on the special voters’ list, the exercise was extended to Sunday December 4.
