Former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan today urged Ghanaians to turn out in force to vote in today’s presidential and parliament election, calling for “peaceful and purposeful” in the face of rising tensions and fears of violence.

He made the appeal in a statement he personally signed on Monday morning.

The highly-anticipated presidential election is believed to be a two-horse race between familiar foes – incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo of New Patriotic Party (NPP) and former President John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The appeal came days after Jonathan’s predecessor, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo appealed to the two leading political parties – NPP and NDC – not to plunge their nation into chaos on account of the polls.

Jonathan said, “The good people of Ghana have always impressed with their pleasant disposition towards civic duties.

“As they file out today to elect their President and next set of parliamentarians, I urge them to be peaceful and purposeful, as a means of deepening their enviable republican credentials and consolidating democratic experience in Africa.

“I am optimistic that Ghana’s leading presidential candidates, President Nana Akufo-Addo and former President John Dramani Mahama, both of who are cultured politicians, will recommit themselves to promoting a credible polling process, so that at the end of the day, Ghana wins and African gains.”
