President-elect, Nana Addo, is calling on Ghanaians to join him thank President Mahama for his maturity during the just ended 2016 elections.
Ghana's knife-edged elections was feared to have had the potential of turning violent had President Mahama not conceded defeat to the main opposition leader. But as expected of the "democrat", John Mahama conceded defeat in a historic concession speech pledging his support to Nana Addo.
Interacting with leadership of the Ghana catholic bishops conference at his Nima residence in Accra, Nana Akufo-Addo intimated that, Ghana would not be enjoying the current peace and stability if President Mahama had refused to concede defeat.
“I think all of us in Ghana have to be thankful that we have in him [Mahama] a man who is also devoted to the peace and stability of our country. He has comported himself in a manner to ensure a smooth transition,” he revealed.
President Mahama suffered a humiliating defeat in the 2016 general election having garnered just 44.40 percent of the total votes cast while Nana Addo of the NPP won by 53.85 percent of valid votes cast.
