Ghana is globally recognized as a beacon of Africa's democracy and peace. The name of the country has over the years shot over the clouds due to the enviable nature of peace and tolerance. From the conduct of elections and equality, the country continues to luster at the global stage. Former President John Mahama remains one of the presidents who have shown great commitment to the maintenance of peace and solidarity in the country.
Recall, in the elections, the opposition National Democratic Congress alleged some avoidable discrepancies in the election process and stormed Supreme Court to challenge the outcome of the polls. The leader of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama filed a petition which was later dismissed unanimously by the Chief Justice Annin Yeboah. Despite Mahama's disappointment in the final ruling, the leaders of the party continues to thank Ghanaians over the support.
Former President of the Republic, NDC Presidential candidate in 2020 elections and leader of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has resumed his nationwide Thank-You campaign. The first day of his tour took him to the Eastern Region to thank Ghanaians and the people of the Region.
Former President John Dramani Mahama continued his meeting with the religious leaders of the Region after addressing the Chiefs and people of Atekyem. Addressing the Council of Churches, he expressed his gratitude over their support and intercession for his party in the last elections.
Addressing the Council of Churches, Mr. Mahama registered his displeasure over the mishaps in the 2020 elections and called on the religious leaders to pursue the recommendations presented to the EC by the NDC. He underscored his commitment to the peace of the country while imploring the leaders to offer constructive advice to the state institutions.
Speaking further, he openly apologised to the Council for delaying the meeting. He said, "I am sorry for keeping you waiting for a long time. We had to first meet the traditional authorities and you that you cannot hurry our regional authorities. Their traditional protocols delayed us a bit." Undoubtedly, the gesture showed by the former President was the least expected and is worth commending.
