Dr Mahamudu Bawumia the Vice President has advised Ghanaians to continue making the nation proud in the eyes of the international community by voting peacefully.
Bawumia made this assertions right after casting his vote at Kperiga D/A Primary School in the Walewale constituency of the North East Region at 8:30 am, after going through the necessary Covid-19 protocols.
Addressing the media after casting his ballot, Vice President Bawumia told all eligible Ghanaians to continue casting their votes in a peaceful manner and help consolidate Ghana’s reputation as an oasis of peace in the West African sub-region.

Ghana, he noted, “is the most peaceful country in West Africa, and we all have a responsibility to ensure that we vote peacefully, go home and wait for the EC to do its job of counting and declaring the results. They have done a solid job so far, and I’m confident they will make us all proud.”
