The President-Elect, the Chief of Staff and their guests in a group photograph
The flag bearers of the political parties which partook in the December 7 polls have called on the President-Elect, Akufo-Addo, at the Jubilee House to congratulate him on his feat.
They briefed the President-Elect about their efforts in educating Ghanaians about the importance of resorting to the courts when disputes arose from electoral contests. Addressing such issues outside the courts, they added, endanger the peace of the country.
The former flag bearers had already conceded defeat following the declaration of the results of the presidential election by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC).
The flag bearers demanded of the President-Elect to conduct himself in a way that would ensure peace in the country.
The President-Elect expressed gratitude to his guests for their gesture. He also said he appreciated the fact that those who were aggrieved about the outcome of the elections had turned to the courts for their grievances to be resolved something he added was the right thing to do.
The President-Elect gave the assurance that he would continue to work for the peace and stability of the country.
Supporting the President to receive the guests was the Chief of Staff, Mrs. Akosua Frema Osei Opare.
The flag bearers were made up of CPP’s Ivor Greenstreet, Henry Lartey of the GCPP, David Apasara of the PNC and a representative of the Mrs. Nana Agyeman Rawlings’ DPP.
Hassan Ayariga’s APC was also represented by a representative as were the others. The NDC was not present.
