The chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr Opoku Onyinah, has described President John Mahama as a tolerant and democratic leader, who will ensure free and fair elections in Ghana.
Apostle Onyinah made this known in his state-of-the-church address posted on the church’s website.
He said God has been good to Ghana and that the last six elections held in the country had been peaceful.
“We are grateful to previous governments who ensured that the Constitution of Ghana was upheld. Observing that the incumbent President of Ghana is very democratic and tolerant, we trust that he and his government will continue to ensure that free and fair elections are conducted,” he said.
Apostle Onyinah praised opposition political parties and presidential candidates, whom he said he accepted the results.
He expressed hope that the opposition parties, especially the New Patriotic Party (NPP), would cooperate with the government and the Electoral Commission to uphold peace during the elections.
The preacher went on to commend Ghanaians for having confidence in the electoral processes and the work of the EC.
