John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has emphasized the need for justice as a foundation for peace in the upcoming December elections.

Speaking at the funeral of former Information Minister John Tia Akologo in Duusi, Talensi District, Upper East Region, Mahama stressed that the NDC is committed to a non-violent electoral process.

In his address, Mahama stated, “If there’s going to be violence, it will not come from us, the NDC.” He urged religious leaders to focus on preaching both peace and justice, highlighting that the latter is essential for achieving the former.

“We expect that the elections will be peaceful because we know we’re going to win. But I will crave our Reverend Fathers when you preach about peace, also preach about justice because when there’s no justice, there is no peace,” he said.


Mahama also reaffirmed the NDC’s commitment to resisting any election rigging attempts and ensuring a transparent electoral process.

“We are for peace, but we will resist any attempts to rig this election. I assure Reverend Father that we will play our part to have a free, fair, and transparent election. And we believe that God will rescue our country from the crisis we find ourselves in,” he concluded.

Mr. John Dramani Mahama, in the company of the NDC National Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia, members of the NDC council of elders, members and former members of parliament, national, regional, and constituency executives, and supporters of the NDC, attended a burial mass for the late Ambassador John Akologu Tia at Tongo in the Talensi district of the UER on Saturday.

The late John Tia was a former MP for Talensi, a former Minister for Information, and a former Ambassador to Cuba.
