The Christian Council of Ghana has urged Ghanaians to ensure peace before, during and after this year’s elections.
According to the Chairman of the Council, Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi, it is a collective duty to prevent anarchy in a polarised political atmosphere.
Rev. Dr. Adu-Gyamfi was speaking at the launch of “Election 2016 Christian and Public Education Campaign”, which is aimed at educating the public on issues that border on the November polls.
He said: “As a nation, we have an obligation to work towards achieving these peaceful, free and fair elections, especially in a highly-polarised political atmosphere like the one we find ourselves in at the moment. To this end, the Christian Council Ghana has outlined some programmes that we want to pursue to help in terms of Christian public education in relation to the campaigns for this year. We do acknowledge the fact that the stakes are very high, we must prevail as a nation, since failure is not an option for us”.
Ghana goes to the polls to elect a new president and members of parliament on November 7 this year.
