President Akufo Addo on Tuesday 6th October 2020 submitted his nomination forms to the Electoral Commission(EC) and made clear that he does not want to be a president through deceptive elections and that he believes in free and fair elections.
Additionally, the President said he also believes the processes marshalled by the Electoral Commission(EC) for the voter register are okay and believes that at the end of the day credible voter register will be produced for free and fair elections come December 7, 2020.
We are hoping that the arrangements that have been put in place will enable the Ghanaian people to manifest their will on the 7th of December and choose the next government of the Fourth Republic. With you [Jean Mensa] and the leadership of the Electoral Commission, are people who are committed to free, fair, credible, and transparent elections.”
“I am not interested in any crooked results. I don’t want to be a President elected by deceit. I look forward to a contest that will be fairly conducted so that if indeed by the grace of the almighty, I am again the choice of the Ghanaian people, it will be one that will be free and open elections.”
Currently, the Electoral Commission of Ghana is finalising work on the new voter registration through the registration exhibitions, etc.
