President Akufo-Addo has said he will exit office when his tenure is over without seeking to change the Constitution to run for another term.
Speaking at the Kofi Annan Peace and Security Forum on Wednesday, 8 December 2021, Mr Akufo-Addo said: “As president of the Republic of Ghana and current Chair of the Authority of ECOWAS States in governance, I pledge to continue to respect the tenets of the ECOWAS protocol on democracy and good governance”.
“I will not make or cause to be made any substantial modification to electoral laws in the last six months before the next election”, he pledged.
“I will respect the two-term limit for the exercise of presidential authority as stipulated in the constitution of the Republic of Ghana”, he vowed.
The president also promised that he will “not be an impediment to the conduct of free, fair and transparent elections.”
“I will hand over power to the next elected president on 7th January 2025, and I will rally my fellow ECOWAS heads of state to take the pledge and support them as they continue to work towards democracy and good governance in the respective countries.”
