Mr Modestus Ahiable, Volta Regional Chairman of National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Monday urged supporters and sympathisers of the Party to be sober and reflective as victory beckoned it in the Presidential Election Run-off.

He advised them to withhold their celebration until the official declaration of the results by Dr Kwadwo Afari Gyan, Electoral Commissioner.

Mr Ahiable gave the advice in an interview with Ghana News Agency as the Party's supporters 'torched off' celebrations in Ho and Aflao.

He said victory was no justification for misbehaviour towards others because the challenges facing the country required the contribution of every citizen.

With a few results to be announced, NDC supporters have turned Aflao into a carnival ahead of the official declaration.

Supporters of all ages took to singing and dancing as they made the Party's sign for change as motor cyclists and drivers made dangerous meandering among the jubilant crowd amidst tooting of horns.

Madam Vincentia Attivor, an Aflao-based trader told GNA that Ghana was a Christian country and God would intervene when the people prayed to Him.

Mr Atchou Kuzorli, a Togolese told GNA at Aflao that outcome of the run-off was a great lesson for politicians in Africa.
