The National Peace Council has issued a press statement appealing to the two political parties in the election petition for peace after the Supreme court’s final verdict on 4th March 2021.
In the letter, they emphasized that following the Peace declaration pack signed by both the New Patriotic Party NPP, and the National Democratic Congress NDC, presidential candidates on 4th December 2020, they subscribed to a code of conduct and roadmap on the eradication of political vigilantism and election-related violence on the grounds that they are inimical to Ghana’s democratic system.
In this regard, they “encourage all supporters of the two political parties not to engage in any activity that is a potential threat to the Peace of Ghana”.
The Peace Council also called on the “Media, social and political communicators and indeed all citizens, to be circumspect in their reports and discussions after the Supreme Court has declared its judgment in order to protect the integrity and sovereignty of the state”.
