Flagbearers of the two main political parties signed a peace pact on Friday, before the general elections.

President Nana Akufo-Addo and John Mahama signed the document at the Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.

Chairman of National Peace Council, Dr Ernest Adu Gyamfi said this move signifies a commitment to non-violence during and after the polls.

He indicated that this is a long-standing tradition which is aimed at reducing the tension in various camps.

“We believe that once this is done, it is going to tone down some of the tension that we are seeing,” he stated.

This development comes three days to the parliamentary and presidential elections across the country.
