Mahama: 2016 polls: God’s hand is on Ghana

President John Dramani Mahama has stated that the hand of God is upon Ghana as the country prepares for another presidential and parliamentary election on December 7.

According to Mr. Mahama, the anxiety and fear being created by some members of the public is unwarranted since peaceful elections have been held on six different occasions.

Speaking at the Royal House Chapel International on Sunday October 2, President Mahama said “We have elections again, we have no cause to doubt that those elections will be peaceful because we have done it six times over and every time we are going to do it, there’s scaremongering – ‘this will happen, that will happen’ – but don’t we trust in God?.

“God’s hand and favour is on this country…there is not going to be any trouble…we have a constitution, we have operated it, if we have an election dispute, we know how it must be handled. Definitely, violence is not an option.”

“Whatever we can do as human beings – and I as the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ghana – will do to make sure we have a peaceful and successful election. The seventh elections we are going to hold will again be peaceful and successful and whoever God decides must lead us in the next four years, He Himself will decide.”

Seventeen people have so far submitted nomination forms to contest the 2016 elections.

The presidential aspirants who have filed their nominations include; Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the NPP, John Dramani Mahama of the NDC, United Freedom Party represented by Akwesi Odike, United Freedom Party Agyenim Boateng, Hassan Ayariga APC, Kofi Akpaloo IPP, Akua Donkor of the GFP and Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings NDP.

The rest are Kwabena Adjei RDP, Papa Kwesi Nduom PPP, WO1 Richard Nixxon Tetteh UDSP, Dr. Henry Lartey GCPP, Ivor Greenstreet CPP, Edward Mahama PNC and Thomas Ward Brew DPP.

The two Independent Presidential candidates who also submitted their forms are Jacob Yaw Osei and Kwame Asiedu Walker.
