Dr. Abu Sakara, Presidential candidate of the Convection People’s Party (CPP), has expressed confidence in President John Dramani Mahama as well as the 2012 Presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), stating categorically that the two leaders are readily committed to maintaining the peace of the country.
Speaking in an interview with Radio Gold, the CPP flagbearer noted that Nana Addo and the President have both tasted the bitter and sweet moments of the nation and would prefer to have their names registered in the country’s history books for good reasons.
To him, both Nana Addo and President Mahama “are people who are deeply committed to the rule of law and democracy in this country. They, themselves, have cited incidences in the past where they have been champions. So…it is not now that they will deny the ultimate rule of the game which is to accept the law of the land as determined by the Supreme Court who are the competent people to determine what is justice.”
He continued that the two leaders are “prepared to meet at a point where nationalism takes over partisanship and where the nation comes first, and the parties come second,” and further advised all political figures in the country to subject their interest to interest of the nation.
