Akufo Addo Condemns Post-Election Violence And Calls For Forgiveness

President-elect Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo delivered a speech at the NPP thanksgiving service held at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday and condemned supporters and sympathisers of the party who engaged in lawlessness after the victory of the party in the 2016 elections.

In his speech, President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo said: “I do recognise that there have been some instances of misconduct and altercations that should never have happened. Such behaviour is unbecoming of us...I call on all Ghanaians to act with kindness, generosity and magnanimity towards one another, and to forgive anybody who has wronged or hurt you.”

He also appreciated the efforts of his Vice-Presidential candidate Dr Bawumia, the First lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo, wife of the Vice-President-elect Samira Bawumia and all those who contributed in diverse ways to the success of the December 7th, 2016 election.

The thanksgiving ceremony was attended by many leading members of the party and thousands of party sympathisers who came to join the NPP give thanks to God for the victory.
