General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has called on the opposition NPP Leader, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to emulate the statesmanship conduct exhibited by defeated Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan.

President Goodluck Jonathan released an official statement after the announcement of the presidential election results.

The outgoing President called his main contender, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and congratulated him hours after the election results were announced on Tuesday.

Commenting on the warmhearted message from the outgoing President of Nigeria, Asiedu Nketia on Okay FM’s "Ade Akye Abia" Morning Show reminded Nana Akufo-Addo to embrace such character of statesmanship to accept defeat without resorting to the law court.

To him, if there should be any lesson and comparison for the opposition NPP to make from the just ended elections in Nigeria, then Nana Akufo-Addo must learn to concede defeat when the results are declared in order not for Ghanaians to experience what happened in the 2012 elections.

He stressed that it will be in the interest of the country if leaders don’t instruct their supporters to go for machetes, stones and sticks to demonstrate against declared election results as the opposition NPP did after the 2012 elections; adding that such behavior mar the beauty of democracy and affect development as well.

If there should be anything for the NPP, then Nana Addo must learn to accept defeat. He must emulate the character of Goodluck Jonathan and not waste our time in court again. They should stop the ‘mitigation attitude’ and refrain from going for machetes, stones and sticks to demonstrate against declared results. If we do this, it will inure to the benefit of all,” he stated.
