The chairman of the Church of Pentecost Apostle Dr. Opoku Onyinah, has described President John Mahama as a tolerant and democratic leader.
According to him, he is confident the President and his government will ensure free and fair elections come November 7.
In a state-of-the-church address posted on the church’s website, Dr Onyinah commended former presidents of the country for their role in deepening democracy in the country.
“We are all witnesses of how God has dealt well with Ghana as a nation. This year’s elections will mark the seventh Ghana has conducted in the Fourth Republic. So far, each one of them has been marked with peace,” he said.
“We are grateful to previous governments who ensured that the constitution of Ghana was upheld. The incumbent President of Ghana is very democratic and tolerant, we trust that he and his government will continue to ensure that free and fair elections are conducted,” Dr. Onyinah stated.
“We also commend the role that the leaders of the opposition parties over the years have played, especially the presidential candidates who graciously accepted the results,” he said.
“We trust that the opposition parties, especially the main opposition party, will cooperate with the government and the Electoral Commission, for Ghana to once again lift high the banner of Africa,”he said.
Furthermore, Dr Onyinah said “we believe that the success story of the elections have been partly due to the confidence Ghanaians have had in the electoral processes and the work of the Electoral Commission. We commend their good work”.
