Speaking after voting, Prof Mike Oquaye urged Ghanaians to stop worrying about naysayers and look at the good side adding that he is impressed with the process so far.

"This is how civilised people do their things. It tells you the level of development here in Ghana. I would like us to all stop worrying about pessimist things and look at the good sides. We are making progress. When we go like this, very soon America, the West and others would come and become election observers here because we are doing it right. I am very happy," he told the Daily Graphic.
