Verdict Should Deepen Country’s Democracy-NCCE
Mrs. Charlotte Osei, National Chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), says the verdict of the Supreme Court on the election petition would deepen and set Ghana aside as a beacon of democracy in Africa.
She said since the country had accepted the path of democracy and the rule of law every Ghanaian must support its tenets to ensure peace and harmony.
Mrs. Osei said this in a speech read for her during a stakeholders’ meeting in Daboase on Wednesday, ahead of the Supreme Court ruling on August 29.
She expressed optimism that the Supreme Court verdict would ensure fairness to both parties and make the country more united and resolute than ever.
Mrs. Osei said since both petitioners and respondents had promised to accept the verdict in good faith, supporters of the two parties should also do same.
Mr. John Nyonator, Wassa East District Director of the NCCE, appealed to supporters of the two parties to tolerate each other to maintain peace in the country.
