Supreme Court

Ghana’s National Peace Council on Sunday urged stakeholders involved in the presidential election petition to uphold peace as the Supreme Court is expected to deliver its judgment Thursday.

“The National Peace Council respectfully calls on all the parties in the dispute, the former president, John Dramani Mahama, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as well as the Electoral Commission to strictly adhere to the ruling of the Supreme Court regardless of who wins or loses in the yet to be delivered judgment,” the peace council said in a statement.

It also urged media, political commentators and all citizens to be circumspect in their reports and discussions about the issue and to use nonviolent means to address their concerns.

“The peace council respectfully appeals to all the people of Ghana to resort to time-tested nonviolent mechanisms to address any outstanding election-related complaints peacefully, either through the judicial process or by any means available alternative dispute resolution mechanisms,” it said.
