The flag bearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, has called on the Electoral Commission of Ghana to ensure the final results of the 2016 elections “must have integrity and must be based on the real votes cast by the people.”
Doctor Nduom who was one of the competitors in Wednesday’s polls has conceded defeat to New Patriotic Party’s flagbearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo after recording discouraging figures at most polling stations.
He said in a Facebook post early Thursday morning “the wind of change has blown in [Nana Addo’s] favor.”
In a recent post however, the Edwumewra called on the Electoral Commission to preserve Ghana’s peace by seeing to it that “the will of the people must prevail”.

LET THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE PREVAIL
I know for sure that I am not the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission. Mrs. Charlotte Osei will tell the nation, and I hope soon and very soon, the confirmed results from yesterday’s elections. If the Commission points to Nana Akufo-Addo, I will congratulate him. If the Commission points to John Dramani Mahama, I will congratulate him. If the Comission points to a runoff, it will be done and I will congratulate the winner.
But the final results must have integrity and must be based on the real votes cast by the people. The will of the people must prevail and that is the only path to peace and development.
