President Nana Akufo-Addo has pledged to accept the outcome of the presidential election on December 7.
He said this when he delivered his peace message at the 3rd High-Level Meeting of the Presidential Elections Peace Pact 2020 on Friday.
Akufo-Addo is seeking a second term in office but will face stiff competition from the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) John Dramani Mahama.
He pledged to commit to Ghana’s peace and unity, adding that the NPP looks forward to a credible election.
We, in the NPP, want a credible election, conducted in a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere,” Akufo-Addo said, as quoted by Classfmonline.
“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.”
Akufo-Addo and Mahama on Friday signed a peace pact to ensure peace before, during, and after the December 7 elections.
On his side, the NDC flagbearer also pledged to ensure the peace and stability of the country before and after the election.
