Musician and political activist, Kwame A-Plus, known in private life as Kwame Asare Obeng, has urged former President John Mahama to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election despite his misgivings.
Mahama came second in the presidential election held on Monday, December 7, 2020, losing to the incumbent president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
According to the Electoral Commission Chairperson Jena Mensa, Mahama trailed Akufo-Addo by over 500, 000 votes.
Following the declaration, Mahama has failed to concede defeat and call Akufo-Addo to congratulate him because he and his party are not accepting the results.
In a post on his Facebook page on Friday, December 11, 2020, A-Plus advised Mahama to call Akufo-Addo and congratulate him irrespective of what may have happened.
According to A-Plus, such a decision was going to help Mahama in his political future in the near future.
A-Plus also advised to Mahama to surround himself with those will be asking him to concede because they are the ones who really care about him.
"Those who care about you and your political future are those who will advise you to accept the results irrespective of what may have happened, call Nana Akufo Addo and congratulate him, take a retrospective break and make a decision for tomorrow.
"Those who give you such advice are the people you need around you right now; they are the ones you should be listening to at this moment. It may help you in the near future.
"This is just a suggestion though. You know better.
"I wish you all the best, " he wrote.
A-Plus' advice comes after former President John Mahama officially rejected the results of the 2020 presidential election.
According to Mahama, there were violations of the law governing the election and thus makes EC's declaration tantamount to illegality.
The NDC presidential candidate while addressing the media on Thursday, December 10, also listed a number of concerns he had about the general conduct of the election.
Meanwhile, The Electoral Commission (EC) has discounted speculation on social media that its chairperson, Jean Mensa, has travelled abroad.
In a statement released on Friday, December 11, 2020, the EC described the information making rounds as fake.
The statement emphasised that Mrs Mensa and all other commissioners were at post discharging their duties.
