Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has said he is confident the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo will emerge victorious at today’s elections.

“I am very confident, I don’t talk 100 percent but I expect Ghanaians to give it to Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP,” he said after casting his ballot at the Dzorwulu in Accra today, Wednesday.

He further called for calm and admonished Ghanaians to eschew violence during the election process.

“We should all go about in an orderly and peaceful way. We are showing our thoughts and expectations it’s not going to war, we don’t need to be violent and truculent.”
