President Mahama: Don’t allow elections to divide us as Ghanaians.


Accra, Dec 7, GNA - President John Dramani Mahama has appealed to Ghanaians not to allow elections to set families, ethnic groups and religions against each other as that was contrary to the democratic constitution of the country.

     He said: “Out of the contest of ideas shall emerge a president and leader whose character embodies and reflects our collective aspirations as a nation towards peace, unity and accelerated socio-economic development.”

     President Mahama said this in a nationwide address to usher in the 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary elections scheduled for Friday, December 7.

     The president said Ghana was bigger and more important than individuals, ethnic groups and religions and entreated Ghanaians to sustain and maintain the country’s untainted reputation in electoral processes by exhibiting peace and unity before, during and after the general election.

     “I want to call on every Ghanaian especially the youth to be law abiding and must do nothing to obstruct the functions of mandated state institutions and bodies in our electoral process,” President Mahama added.

     He said as the Commander in Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, he had provided all the necessary facilities and logistics to the Electoral Commission and the security services to conduct a peaceful and successful elections and appealed to all stakeholders to play their roles responsibly to achieve another feat after five previous successful ones.
     President Mahama appealed to all registered voters to actively participate in the voting exercise to be contributory to the election of their desired leaders.
