Peaceful election was an act of God

Mr Asare Yeboah, Kumasi Diocesan
Chairman of the Association of Methodist Men's Fellowships, has advised Christians to take the upcoming presidential election runoff as their civic and religious responsibility and vote in the December 28 polls.
     He said the peace and tranquillity, which characterized the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections, was an act of God following incessant fasting and prayers by stakeholders.
     Addressing the last monthly meeting of the Fellowship in Kumasi on Sunday, Mr Yeboah said Ghanaians should exhibit the same patience to bring about a peaceful and credible election.
     He said the nation stood to gain a lot from the outcome of the elections, saying from the conduct of the elections since 1992 to date, Ghana had won admiration of the international community due to the maturity displayed by the citizenry.
     He called on the Leadership of the two contesting parties to accept the outcome of the runoff in good faith to further enhance the nation's reputation and respect among the comity of nations.
