“Independent they are, yes. But that does not stop them from listening to the Ghanaian. Listen to the wisdom from our elders. They should not under any circumstance hide under the independence to refuse to consult and listen. If they put their acts together well, they can put Ghana together and they can place Ghana on a pedestal of peace and progress. Well, they can also break Ghana and posterity will not forgive them,” Maulvi Bin Salih stated.

Addressing political parties, he urged them to be mindful of their statements and actions, reminding them that the ultimate goal is to ensure the well-being and happiness of Ghanaians post-election. “It is very important to know that at the end of the exercise, Ghanaians should be there living, happy, and prepared to help. Therefore, every political party must know that whatever they do during this electioneering period is in the interest of Ghanaians.”

The Deputy Minister for the Interior and MP for Gomoa Central, Naana Eyiah, reaffirmed the government’s commitment to maintaining peace, pledging close collaboration with security agencies to ensure a peaceful election. “The Ministry is doing its best. And you know the Police is our backbone. They are going to work very well so that there will be a peaceful election. I know they know what to do but we are still asking that they should do more,” she said.

As the December 7, 2024, general elections approach, Ghanaians are also being called upon to protect the peace and security currently enjoyed in the country.
