#GhanaElections: Free, fair elections forms basis for strengthening national cohesion – Akufo

President Nana Akufo-Addo says the conduct of a free, fair, and transparent election, one whose result is beyond dispute, forms a good basis for strengthening cohesion amongst the Ghanaian citizenry and preventing needless dispute.
 
According to him, the current multiplicity of media organisations and the power of social media, the existence of transparent ballot boxes, the decentralized nature of tallying and tabulation, and the mode of voter verification has engendered increasing trust and confidence by the citizenry in the process of electing their leaders.
 
Together with the compilation of a new voters’ register ahead of the conduct of the December 2020 elections, the President explained that all of these enhanced processes have strengthened the cohesion of the nation.
 
With electoral disputes wreaking havoc in some African countries, Akufo-Addo stated that, Ghana has been spared such incidents.
 
“We have the good sense of the Ghanaian people to thank for this, and we must continue to act as checks and balances for one another.”
 
He reassured that his Government is making unstinting efforts to ensure the peace and stability of the nation, as Ghana enters the last three months of the electioneering campaign.
