John Mahama campaign team urges calm

The John Mahama 2016 Campaign has called on its teeming supporters, sympathisers and the voting public to remain calm as results trickle in from the various constituencies across the country.

A statement signed by Joyce Bawah Mogtari the Spokesperson of the team said: “We wish to also encourage our supporters to continue to remain calm as the ballots make their way to the constituency collation centres.

“At this moment, a number of radio stations are announcing polling station results, and not constituency tallies.

“With the details we have from our Parallel Vote Tabulation, President John Dramani Mahama is in a comfortable lead, and we encourage all supporters to wait for the Electoral Commission as it receives and releases the verified results to the media via its Coalition & Media Centres.” the statement noted.

The team said it acknowledged “the decision of the Electoral Commission to extend voting in the Afram Plains South Constituency and re-opening of the polls in Jaman North Constituency tomorrow”.

“Let us continue to ignore and treat with contempt, claims by some radio and TV stations announcing who is leading the pack or winning the election based on polling station results that do not equate to a total of three constituencies.” GNA
