7-POLITICAL SITUATION IN GHANA

The Democratic Credentials of Ghana is going to be deepened for the fact that the two major political parties both NPP and NDC have agreed to address their election disputes in the Law Court unlike some countries that have resorted to WAR. Political leadership and all political parties’ faithful’s should exercise a lot of restraint and tolerance and to also know that Ghana is first and bigger than all parties, and to also put Ghana first before any other thing.

The political situation in Ghana currently is one of anxiety. Even though, Ghana has gone through peaceful general elections, some parties feel the polls were not fair. These aggrieved parties have their grievances and those grievances must seriously and cautiously be addressed. This must not be taken for granted. The “Divine Will” requires that, the TRUTH must be brought out no matter the cost. Justice must be employed to make the truth known about the election results otherwise …, Ghana stands to experience terrible and disastrous consequences like devastating Fire outbreaks, Communal violence, Carnage on the roads, High rate of crime, etc.

Ghanaians should respect and accept the final verdict of the Supreme Court Ruling on the election results for the sake of peace. Hence forth, Political leaders and all politicians must be very civil in their political talks, must not use any vulgar and abusive languages. Politicians should not criminalize their opponents. If these pieces of advice are not heeded to, there will be serious political turmoil.
