The National Peace Council is calling on Ghanaians, political leaders and their supporters to refrain from any activity that may directly or indirectly disturb the peace of the country after the Supreme Court delivers its judgment for the December 2020 Election Petition.
In a statement issued by the Chairman of the National Peace Council Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi has asked the supporters of the two major political parties not to engage in any activity that is a potential threat to the peace of Ghana.
According to the Council “On December 4, 2020 the Presidential Candidates of the NPP, the Second Respondent in the said Petition, and the Presidential Candidate of the NDC, the Petitioner in this case, publicly subscribed to the Accra Peace Declaration” to commit themselves and their supporters to peaceful elections in the December 2020 elections and judicial resolution of all election disputes including restraining their supporters from resorting to violence in the aftermath of the elections.
National Peace Council has therefore called on all the parties in the dispute that’s, the former President, Mr. John Dramani Mahama, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, as well as the Electoral Commission, to strictly adhere to the ruling of the Supreme Court regardless of who wins or loses in the yet to be delivered judgment.
