Deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), George Lawson has urged the party members and the entire citizenry to brace themselves as the nine-member panel sitting on the pending election case before the Supreme Court gets set to deliver its ruling.
Speaking in an interview with Radio Gold on Wednesday, George Lawson admonished the members of the ruling party not to engage in any violent acts but respect the verdict irrespective of the party it eventually favours.
He also pledged commitment of the party leadership to comply with the court ruling.
“We are committed to total peace. We don’t want the peace that we are enjoying to be disturbed…We’re committed to it and we’ll continue to be committed to it,” he said.
He further assured the nation that the NDC has sought to sensitize its members and hoped their pacific initiatives will be upheld by them.
“We have sent messages down to the grass root level, telling our members, educating them, sensitizing them, conditioning them for whatever verdict that will come out that they should accept it,” he added.
Meanwhile, the hierarchy of the Ghana Police Service, led by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan, on Tuesday held talks with the leadership to maintain law and order in the aftermath of the election petition.
