Clergy rallies support for EC to ensure peaceful elections

President of the Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference, Most Rev. Philip Naameh, has advised all political parties and youth groups in Ghana to respect the electoral laws of Ghana and conduct themselves in a manner that would promote peace and unity in the country.

According to him, what Ghanaians needed was peace, during and after the December 7 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

Most Rev Naameh was speaking in Tamale at the Moral Community’s Peace Conference organized by the Northern Development and Democratic Institute, (NDDI), a foremost public policy organization in the Northern Region.

He commended the Electoral Commission for its efficient preparation for the polls and called on all the political parties and other stakeholders to endeavour to support the work of the Commission to engender transparency for the overall good of the country.

Most Rev Naameh said, the EC’s transparency and efficient management of the electoral process was imperative towards delivering free, fair and credible elections, and that the EC could not achieve that without the support and co-operation of all actors, and the people of Ghana.

He advised the youth to remember the tremendous sacrifices made by the country’s leaders to keep the peace and “always remember that our father, the Ya-Na, came all the way from Yendi to sit here to promote peace, so remember his efforts and conduct yourselves in ways that will enhance the peace during the elections and beyond,” he said.

The conference was on the theme: “Delivering Peaceful, Free, Fair and Credible Elections, a Responsibility for all Ghanaians,” and brought together leading voices within the moral community to appeal to stakeholders and the people of Ghana for peaceful elections.
