The President of Ghana and chairman of the Economic Communities of West African states, ECOWAS John Mahama visited the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP President Jonathan on the need to conduct a free and fair election on Saturday. Both leaders held the meeting at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja. The President John Mahama said ECOWAS will be deploying election monitors to observe the forth coming general elections. He also said that the postponement has allowed INEC to prepare properly for the elections.
The Ghanaian president restated the importance of Nigeria to the ECOWAS region. He said as the largest economy in Africa with the largest population, the safety and security of Nigerians is the safety and security of the region. He said Nigerians should be encouraged to come and votes because it is their rights to vote. He said he was standing on behalf of other ECOWAS heads of state to appeal to Nigerians to make their votes count and should be interested in who becomes the next leader of Nigeria.
He said that he will also be holding a meeting with the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC Prof. Attahiru Jega to discuss the state of preparedness of the commission. The Ghanaian president said he will meet the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC General Muhammadu Buhari as the leading opposition party to discuss the need to hold a peaceful election.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
