The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has called on the security agencies especially the Ghana Police Service to uphold the right to peaceful demonstrations by aggrieved parties to the electoral dispute in the country without any hindrance.
In press statement issued on behalf of the National Executive Council by its General Secretary Rev. Emmanuel T. Barrigah, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) said, though the security agencies need to respect the right to peaceful demonstration, aggrieved party supporters of National Democratic Congress (NDC) among others must be responsible in exercising their constitutional rights to demonstrate peacefully without disturbing the peace of the country.
“The rights to peaceful demonstrations by aggrieved parties to the electoral dispute must be upheld and protected by the security agencies, especially the Ghana Police Service without any hindrances. While calling on the Security agencies to remain professional and be measured in their responses to acts of indiscipline by demonstrators in these tensed moments, we are equally calling on all aggrieved parties to be responsible in the exercise of their constitutional rights to demonstrate peacefully without disturbing the peace of the country.” They said.
The press statement of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) was in connection with the Nationwide protest by some supporters of the National Democratic Congress who claimed the Electoral Commission of Ghana led Mrs. Jean Mensa has rigged the December 2020 Presidential election results in favour of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
