Mahama, Amissah-Arthur intensify campaigns
From Alfred Adams, Takoradi
He said his government would deal ruthlessly with people particularly election saboteurs who would want to destroy progress of the forthcoming general election.
According to President Mahama, Ghana over the years had enjoyed five peaceful elections and his administration will do everything humanly possible to ensure that the December 7 election is peaceful and devoid of any violence and mayhem.
President Mahama, who was addressing the Local Network of Churches in Takoradi over the weekend, warned that the government would deal ruthlessly with people who try to create confusion before, during and after the December 7 polls.
He added that our country has carved a niche for herself in the eyes of the world and he would not do anything negative to reverse the trend.
President Mahama also called on religious leaders to continue to provide intercessory prayers that would help reduce election-related violence before and during the elections.
Meanwhile Vice President PaaKwesiAmissah-Arthur has reiterated the ruling National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) commitment to continue with the Better Ghana Agenda if elected in December.
He made this known in Tamale, the Northern Regional capital where he paid a courtesy call on some Chiefs and the Clergy in the metropolis. Mr. Amissah-Arthur who is also the vice presidential candidate of the NDC arrived in Tamale on Sunday after touring the Upper West and Upper East regions.
