For Immediate Release: Ghanaians must remain calm and wait for the Electoral Commission-CCG

   Rev. Dr. Cyril G.K. Fayose, General Secretary-CCG

The Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) is thankful to God for the peace and tranquility we have enjoyed in this year’s electioneering process.

Even though pockets of violence were reported in some polling stations, the Elections were generally peaceful.

The Council thanks Ghanaians for once again putting our nation on the world map as the beacon of democracy in Africa. We also appreciate the security agencies, the media and other stakeholders for their immense contribution to the success of this year’s Elections.

Having come thus far, the CCG wishes to remind Ghanaians that the Electoral Commissioner is the Returning Officer for the Presidential Elections and is the only person mandated by law to declare the winner for the Presidential Elections.

In view of this, we wish to encourage all Ghanaians to remain calm as we await the official declaration of the winner for this year’s Presidential Elections from the Chairperson of the Commission.

We kindly appeal to the leadership of the two main political parties to desist from announcing the winner of the Presidential Elections as it has the propensity to cause mayhem in the event that the EC’s official declaration goes contrary to that announced by the political party.

Finally, the Council is thankful to the EC for the manner it has conducted itself so far and the quick updates it gave to Ghanaians throughout the electioneering period.

Ghana is indeed the winner in this year’s elections.

May God bless our homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong.
