“The Adventist Church takes this opportunity to thank the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama for exhibiting good statesmanship by conceding defeat and assuring the nation of a peaceful transition. We wish him, his family and the National Democratic Congress Party God’s guidance and blessing in all their future endeavours.

God bless us all and keep our dear nation united as one people with one destiny.” It further indicated.
