We won’t bow to pressure to manipulate the December polls – Mahama

John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has promised to make sure that the forthcoming elections in December are peaceful.

“If there’s going to be violence, it will not come from us, the NDC,” the former president promised.

In an address at the funeral grounds of the late John Tia Akologo, a former Minister of Information at Duusi in the Talensi District of the Upper East Region, the NDC’s flagbearer urged the clergy not only to preach about peace but also justice, which he said is a precursor to a peaceful electoral process.

“We expect that the elections will be peaceful because we know we’re going to win. If there’s going to be violence, it will not come from us, the NDC.

“But I will crave our Reverend Fathers when you preach about peace, also preach about justice because when there’s no justice, there is no peace.”

He added that the NDC will resist any attempts to rig the elections and will do its best to ensure a free, fair, and transparent election.

“We are for peace, but we will resist any attempts to rig this election. I assure Reverend Father that we will play our part to have a free, fair and transparent election. And we believe that God will rescue our country from the crisis we find ourselves in.”
