Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has appealed to the citizens of Togo not to vote in Ghana's election in December.
Speaking in French to residents of Aflao, a town that shares a border with Togo, on Sunday, Akufo-Addo told the Togolese people that they would be helping Ghana's democratic process by refraining from voting in the election.
He expressed optimism that the government of Togo would realise the gravity of the situation and prevent Togolese citizens from crossing into Ghana to vote on December 7.
The NPP leader said Ghanaians should be the only ones to choose the next president for the country.
Akufo-Addo's appeal comes after Asiedu Nketia, the general secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), said his party would campaign in Togo to encourage their supporters working in the country to come home and vote.
