“We also appeal to supporters of the losing candidate to accept the loss graciously,” the statement signed by Rev. Dr. Cyril Fayose CCG General Secretary said.

The CCG further encouraged pastors to use the coming Sunday to thank God for a peaceful election and to preach unity among the Ghanaian people.
