Supreme Court’s verdict would deepen democracy
Apinkra (Ash), Aug. 28, GNA – The Supreme Court’s verdict on the 2012 Presidential election petition would consolidate democratic dispensation and principles in the country, Reverend Francis Addo-Nyadu, Chief Executive of the Compassion Africa Aged Foundation (CAAF), has said.
“It is our conviction that the nation will once again pass this test by demonstrating political maturity, tolerance and a high sense of discipline after the Court’s judgment.
Ghana has an enviable record under the Fourth Republic Constitution, and having braced all odds to protect democratic structures in all these years we know the nation will not disappoint observers by rejecting the verdict”, he said.
Reverend Addo-Nyadu was speaking to the Ghana News Agency at Apinkra in the Bosomtwe District, on the sidelines of a day’s forum on “Peace and Nation-Building”.
The programme was held under the auspices of the Foundation, a community-based organization committed to the welfare of the aged.
The forum was designed to sensitize the aged drawn from Kuntenase, Jachie and Oforikrom-Anloga on their role in promoting peace and social harmony before and beyond the Court’s judgment.
The Chief Executive tasked the aged to be responsive to their roles in nation-building since the youth looked up to them for inspiration.
They were expected to impress upon the younger generation to eschew all forms of violence, he said.
He reminded the citizenry that the Court’s judgment “should be viewed as victory for all” to sustain political stability and social harmony.
