Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the Republic of Ghana, is courting the support of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) for a peaceful election in the upcoming December polls.
President Akufo-Addo said he is committed to the peace of the country, before, during and after the elections.
On Monday, 14th September 2020, President Akufo-Addo said when delivering the keynote address, at the virtual Annual Conference of the Ghana Bar Association on the theme: “Enhancing National Cohesion: The Essence of Free, Fair and Responsible Electoral Process.”
The President said: “Ghana has rightly earned the reputation as the pacesetter in democratic governance on the continent, a reputation I’m determined to uphold and indeed enhanced prior to during and after the 7 December election. To this end, I will need your cooperation and assistance…”
He continued that: “We have to all work together to create an environment that will allow the Ghanaian people to make their decision of 7 December in freedom, peace and security -it is their right”.
“So let us, therefore, conduct ourselves with courtesy, responsibility and show respect and peace”.
“When my time is up hopefully after four more years, I want to hand over to my successor and the sovereign people of Ghana, a country that is greater, fairer, stronger, more cohesive, more prosperous and more united than I met it in 2017”.
