RAWLINGS CONGRATULATES PRESIDENT-ELECT MAHAMA
Following the successful conclusion of the 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary
elections I extend warm and sincere congratulations to President-Elect John
I call on President-Elect John Mahama to endeavour to restore and defend the
NDC?s ideals of unity, stability, development, probity and accountability at all times, as he fulfills the mandate entrusted upon him by an expectant electorate.
I urge the leading opposition party to respect the atmosphere of peace, which
characterised the elections.
If there are grievances over the results of the elections they should follow the appropriate channels and desist from creating an atmosphere that can potentially hurt the peace and stability in the country.
Once again I commend all Ghanaians for ensuring that the electoral process was
held in an atmosphere of serenity despite the challenges posed by the introduction
