A statement said Mr Mahama is expected to “lead the discussions in a closed-door high-level breakfast meeting between the Presidential Candidates and their Running Mates, Commissioners of the PPRC, Electoral Officials, Police Chief, Paramount Chiefs and Eminent Persons.”

According to the PPRC, it recognises Ghana’s past president as a leading voice for the consolidation of democracy and improving electoral activities across the continent hence the invitation.
