*JOHN MAHAMA CAMPAIGN URGES SUPPORTERS TO REMAIN CALM AS RESULTS TRICKLE IN*
The John Mahama 2016 Campaign wishes to congratulate its teeming supporters, sympathisers and the voting public for the impressive turnout to vote for President John Dramani Mahama today.
We recognise also, that the voting process was very smooth and orderly. Voters comported themselves well, despite some isolated incidents and delayed start of voting at a number of polling stations.
We do also acknowledge the decision of the Electoral Commission to extend voting in the Afram Plains South Constituency and re-opening of the polls in Jaman North Constituency tomorrow.
We wish to also encourage our supporters to continue to remain calm as the ballots make their way to the constituency collation centres.
At this moment, a number of radio stations are announcing polling station results, and not constituency tallies.
With the details we have from our Parallel Vote Tabulation, President John Dramani Mahama is in a comfortable lead, and we encourage all supporters to wait for the Electoral Commission as it receives and releases the verified results to the media via its Coalition & Media Centres.
Let us continue to ignore and treat with contempt, claims by some radio and TV stations announcing who is leading the pack or winning the election based on polling station results that do not equate to a total of three (3) constituencies.
We thank you for your confidence in the John Dramani Mahama administration and for your vote.
