Rawlings and Akufo-Addo

Former president JJ Rawlings has congratulated President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo and has urged him to be a unifier.

Akufo-Addo was declared winner of last Wednesday’s election which saw him hitting an impressive 53% votes against incumbent John Mahama’s 44%.

“I commend you for committing to be a leader for all Ghanaians in your acceptance address. The onus is on you to pursue a leadership that unifies the people so members of the losing side have no reason to feel insecure,” Mr Rawlings said in a congratulatory message to Nana Addo.

“The victory is a manifestation of the people’s desire for new leadership and comes with enormous responsibilities including a commitment to pursue an anti-corruption drive across the board.

“Ghana faces huge challenges, many of which you promised to tackle during your campaign tours. You have been elected as president because the electorate believes you have the ability to confront these challenges and lead the country with fearlessness, humility and honesty.

“I wish you the best of luck as you prepare to assume the mantle of leadership. God bless you and our homeland Ghana.”
