With less than 24 hours to the 2020 general election, President Akufo-Addo will tonight address the nation.
Aside the President’s periodic Covid-19 addresses, tonight will be the second time he will speak to the nation as electorates prepare to exercise their franchise.
In his televised address on Saturday, President Akufo-Addo touted his achievements since he assumed the helms of affairs in 2017 and urged electorates to vote massively for the governing New Patriotic Party.
But in today’s address, scheduled for 8 pm, he is expected to entreat the citizenry to desist from any activity that will cause electoral violence.
All appears to be set for the polls on Monday, with valid registered Ghanaian voters expected to go to the polls to elect the occupant of the Jubilee House, the seat of government for the next four years.
Two hundred and seventy-five members of Parliament will also be elected to serve for a four-year term.
Polls will open from 7 am to 5 pm in 38,622 polling stations in all the 275 constituencies nationwide.
The record of 12 persons contesting for the lone presidential slot in Election 2020 will go down in Ghana’s electoral history as the biggest slate of candidates since the country began the practice of democracy.
The candidate who secures 50 per cent plus one eligible vote in the Presidential contest will be the eighth President of the Fourth Republic.
The address will be aired live on JoyNews, Joy FM, and also streamed on Myjoyonline.com.
