Celebrate Supreme Court verdict in moderation – NAFOP
Wenchi (B/A), Aug. 27, GNA – Mr Kofi Boateng, National Patron of Nana For President 2012 (NAFOP), a youth wing within the New Patriotic Party (NPP), over the weekend appealed for celebration in moderation after the Supreme Court verdict is delivered.
He said whichever way the verdict goes, it was important for the followers of the two major political parties, the NPP and the National Democratic Congress, to moderate their jubilation and guard against tendencies that could infuriate each other and disturb the peace of the nation.
Mr Boateng said this during an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) after NAFOP organized a prayer service at Wenchi to seek God’s intervention and to sustain national peace as the Supreme Court prepares to deliver its verdict on the 2012 Presidential Election petition.
Thousands of the NPP and NDC supporters had earlier embarked on a peace walk in the Municipality to demonstrate their readiness to accept the Court’s verdict and the prayer service was attended by both supporters of the NDC and NPP who were clad in their party colours and paraphernalia.
Mr Boateng said Ghana’s democracy would survive if Ghanaians, especially supporters of the NDC and NPP, allowed national interest to overshadow their partisan considerations and accept the verdict in good faith.
He said whatever decision the Supreme Court might reach, was purposely for the supreme interest of the nation and it behooves on the leadership of the two political parties to accept the decision for their followers to follow suit.
Mr Richard Kwadwo Adu, Brong-Ahafo Regional Chairman of NAFOP, appealed to all party and political activists to see themselves as partners in development and avoid tendencies that could disturb the harmony of the nation.
