    I hope this year’s election and declaration of results will bring peaceful electoral atmosphere in Ghana. I urge Ghanaians not to engage themselves in anything that will disstabilise the country. when there is chaos, it is we children and women that will suffer the most. We pray to God that nothing of that sort happens in Ghana.

    We should very careful of what we do or say at this very moment in our lives as a country. we should have faith in the electoral commission and stop disputing! No politician will leave his house and come and fight over politics its only the poor and vunerable. so first tink about the old lady who cant walk, the physically challenge and your mother in the house before u do anytin that will mare the peace of this country!

    Metro tv, tv3 and Adom fm should stop declaring fake result because only Dr. Afari Gyan has the power to do so. This can lead to misundersting between NPP and NDC.

    i think i will share my ideology with the electoral commission. my idea for the 2016 polls. i think elections must be conducted for two days. day one voters must be allow to vote from 7am in the morning to 3pm in the afternoon. so the counting of the votes will be done in broad daylight, so the collation of ballot boxes to the collation center will be done in broad day. the next day the others so could vote do theirs the second day to 3pm so everything is done in the board day light.
