This was just after John Mahama, who was in the area as part of his campaign tour, had likened himself to Usain Bolt in the election race, stressing that God has already chosen him as a winner for 2016.

Sobin Kai II reiterated Mahama's point by adding that "We are sure God has already chosen a leader after the elections; so we are pleading with President Mahama to accept the results after December 7 no matter the outcome, as has been done in previous elections."

He concluded saying "So I am saying whoever loses this year; should accept the results in order not to disrupt the peace we enjoy in this country."
