OKOFO KATAKYI Nyakoh Eku X, the Paramount Chief of Nyakrom Traditional Area, has congratulated Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President-Elect, on his resounding victory in the December 7 elections.
He said the victory made by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was not for the party supporters alone but for all Ghanaians.
Speaking to the media at Agona Nyakrom, Okofo Katakyi Nyakoh Eku said the divisional chiefs, queens, elders and all heads of clan in the traditional area are solidly behind the President-elect and would ensure that he succeeds.
The Omanhene also used the opportunity to deny allegations made against him that on the eve of the elections, he kept stuffed ballot boxes at his palace at Agona Nyakrom.
He said the allegations were unfounded and outrageous and sought to bring his hard-won reputation into disrepute.
The Omanhene said investigations by the police and the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) show that the allegations are untrue.
He appealed to political party leaders and supporters to be cautious about spreading unfounded allegations about certain personalities, especially traditional rulers, as that could not be substantiated.
He said politics should not be done in a manner that could lead to violence in the country, adding that the December 7 elections were held peacefully nationwide.
The Omanhene commended outgoing President John Dramani Mahama for conceding defeat before the Electoral Commissioner announced the result to declare Nana Akufo Addo as the President-elect. GNA
