The Speaker of ECOWAS Parliament, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has commended the people of Ghana for, living up to their rating as beacons of democracy in the West Africa sub-region.
The Speaker stated this in a congratulatory message he sent to the incumbent President, John Dramani Mahama.
“I warmly congratulate you and the good people of Ghana for making the sub-region proud, once more, by re-enacting a peaceful, free, fair, and credible election” he said.
He also noted that the success however goes beyond who won since it is neither an individual victory for Mr President nor Ghana alone, but a victory for democracy and integration for the entire peoples of West Africa.
“This, coming on the heels of similar democratic consolidation in Sierra-Leone, counts as an additional momentum for democracy and a bold statement to the entire world that democracy and good governance has indeed come to stay in our sub-region.”
While urging the President Mahama to galvanise all Ghanaians for the progress of the West African country irrespective of political inclinations, Senator Ekweremadu congratulated the opposition for staging a tight race for the office of the President and charged them to join hands with President Mahama to continue to move their country forward.
