The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council has urged Ghana Police Service to provide adequate protection to the aggrieved parties of the just ended 7th December elections who are protesting over disputed election results.
The Council has called on all parties involved in the election brouhaha including persons intending to stage a demonstration against the 2020 “Flawed election” to be circumspect in their activities.
It is of thrived knowledge that sympathizers of the National Democratic Congress NDC and other well-meaning Ghanaians are staging series of demonstrations across the country to echo their displeasure about the manner in which the Electoral Commission is handling the election result which has since been rejected by the opposition leader, former President John Mahama.
The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council have issued a press statement outlining how security matters can be managed properly until all sides of the political divide are satisfied with the outcome of the election.
They noted that ” the rights to a peaceful demonstration 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 response 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 distributing the peace of the country”.
The Council reiterated that Ghana as a democratic country must ensure that the rights of all persons are respected and protected.
As a country governed in accordance with the 1992 constitution, demonstrations are legal avenues that any Ghanaian or group of Ghanaians can resort to, to drum home their grievances without hindrance.
The council admonished all losing parties to strongly consider the constitutional option of proceeding to the supreme court with all the evidence they have gathered to seek a review of the decision of the EC.
They further advice the NPP to be modest in their celebration and called on all Ghanaians to keep praying for the country.
