The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says the Nana Addo led administration is committed to ensuring that Ghana continues to enjoy peace before, during and after the December general elections.
The Vice President who was speaking at the place of Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo, the overlord of the Waala traditional area, to begin his three-day campaign tour of the Upper West Region said the priority of his party is to maintain the peace in the country.
“we must do this year’s elections in peace because without peace there will be no development. We are going to tell the people what we have done and what we intend to do and leave the rest to them. There will be no room for insults or incitement to violence. Ghana is the most peaceful country in West Africa, and we intend to maintain that for future generations.”
Some Ghanaians have raised security concerns over this year’s elections, citing the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence and the disturbances that erupted during the last voters’ registration exercise as reasons for their concerns.
The Vice President used the occasion to introduce himself to the chiefs as the running mate to President Nana Akufo-Addo and appealed for their support.
He said the NPP is confident of winning the December election due to the numerous development projects that the country witnessed under their leadership.
Naa Fuseini Pelpuo IV charged the Vice President and the leadership of all other political parties to engage in issue-based campaigning devoid of character assassination as that could cast a slur on the country’s democratic process.
