In a letter addressed to the Leaders of Ghana’s leading political parties, the National Democratic Congress, NDC, and the New Patriotic Party, NPP, Obasanjo urged the key players to ensure the peace and stability of the country.
In the Presidential poll, the incumbent President and NPP Candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, will be facing John Mahama of the NDC, a replica of what played out in the 2016 election. Akufo-Addo had in 2016, defeated Mahama as the incumbent President.
As the country prepares for the Presidential election, Obasanjo urged the parties and their Candidates to play by rules and avoid actions capable of plunging the country into chaos.
In a letter to the Leaders of the parties, copies which were made available to Newsmen by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Saturday, Obasanjo sought for building efforts aimed at enhancing mutual trust and confidence among themselves in the relevant national institutions, and in the electoral process.
The letter dated November 20, was titled: “Letter to the Leadership of New Patriotic Party, NPP, and National Democratic Congress, NDC, on ensuring peaceful, credible and transparent general elections on 7th December, 2020, in Ghana”.
Former President Obasanjo prayed and wished that the country should be a winner, irrespective of the party that wins the election, noting that, with his humble voice, the region and the continent would count on their patriotism during and after the election.
