This is the third time President Akufo-Addo has participated in this ceremony – the first two as Leader of the Opposition, and the third as President of the Republic.
During the event, Mr. Akufo-Addo reiterated his commitment to the peace and stability of the country and has assured the Ghanaian people of his readiness to accept the verdict of the election.
“I have said that we believe in elections, and I am happy to give my word that we shall accept the verdict of the people of Ghana. Above all, I pledge that the peace, unity, and safety of Ghana will be our primary consideration,” the President said.
He added: “We believe in elections, we have always done and we, in the NPP, can safely claim without any fear of contradiction that every improvement that has brought more widespread credibility to our electoral process has been at our instigation,”
