Ghana's Mahama claims he is a man of peace

12 January 2016, 14:58

Accra - Ghana's president John Dramani Mahama has vowed not to be an agent of violence ahead of the West African country's presidential polls in November, a report said.

According to GNA, president Mahama claimed that he was known as a "man of peace", thus, his government would not tolerate violence.

"I am known to be a man of peace and I am committed to peace. I won't be [an] agent of violence in the elections," Mahama was quoted saying.

Mahama promised peace before, during and after the elections, saying that he remained true to the mandate given to him, the report said.

Mahama's remarks, however, came as a controversial Ghanaian prophet early this month predicted a coup d’état in the west African nation. 

The Glorious Word and Power Ministry founding leader, Isaac Owusu Bempah, claimed that the coup would be orchestrated by the ruling party as it fears losing in the presidential polls.

According to Starr FM , the country’s elections body, the Electoral Commission of Ghana, has promised to ensure credible, transparent and peaceful elections on November 7.

Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei, said that the election would only be successful if stakeholders played an active role, the report said.

"I am totally certain that we are going to have elections that are peaceful, that are transparent, inclusive and credible but we need the support and the active involvement of all Ghanaians," Osei was quoted saying.
