Former President, Jerry John Rawlings has in a meeting with the leadership of Togo’s National Alliance for Change (ANC) party called for a free and fair polls as Togolese prepare for their next Presidential election.
He made this known when members of the opposition parties paid a courtesy call on him.
He said as a Ghanaian he is naturally interested in developments in Togo, but counseled the leadership of The National Alliance for Change (ANC) to consult current ECOWAS Chairman, President John Mahama to pass on all their concerns.
The Togolese delegation was led by Jean-Pierre Fabre, the party’s president, Mr. Latevi Georges Lawson, Special Advisor and Octave Koffi Anthony, a cabinet member.
Former President Rawlings said they would also prompt President Mahama to look into the matter but stressed the need for the concerned Togolese parties to channel their grievances to the ECOWAS leadership.
Former President of the ECOWAS Commission, Ambassador Victor Gbeho who was at the meeting said he was happy that the Togolese opposition was using peaceful channels to express their concerns.
