The former President, however, congratulated the Inspector General of Police, Dr George Akuffo-Dampare and his personnel for ensuring the peaceful conduct of the polls.

“The conduct of the police personnel gives us confidence for the future that they will continue to bear true allegiance to the state and not to any political party,” he said.

He noted that a credible election depends on the people the Electoral Commission recruits as presiding officers to collaborate with the agents and representatives of the political parties.

“Many of the infractions observed should not have occurred. Our monitoring teams that ensured the early detection of these infractions will be looking forward to engaging further to ensure that these issues are definitely dealt with and corrective measures taken ahead of any other election,” he stressed.

The former President also congratulated Ernest Yaw Ayim, the NPP MP-elect for the Kumawu Constituency.

He thanked the people of Kumawu for the peaceful conduct of the by-election and commended the NDC’s team from various branches, constituencies and the many selfless members of the party who were in Kumawu to assist to ensure a smooth process.
