The National Peace Council (NPC) has called for all to be measured in everything they do and avoid getting carried by emotions as the nation readied for the official declaration of the outcome of the presidential polls by the Electoral Commission (EC).
It asked that everybody stepped back from engaging in taunts and making fun of their losing political opponents.
This was contained in a press statement issued by the Council and signed by its Ashanti Regional Chairman, Professor Seth Opuni Asiama, a copy of which was made available to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi.
It said nobody should overindulged or acted provocatively.
The statement advised the people to demonstrate high sense of political maturity and patriotism.
The Council expressed worry over the excessive jubilation by some people even before the official declaration of the results.
It applauded all for the different roles and contribution they made to ensure the peaceful and successful conduct of the general election.
It reminded the people to be peace-loving and reject anything, which would fuel tension.
