The National Peace Council criticize the recent protests organised by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the 2020 election results.
The Peace Council in a statement encouraged the NDC to stop protesting since it can “spark post-election violence and mar the entire peaceful election process.”
NDC supporters across the country have been protesting for days against the 2020 election results since it didn’t go in their favor.
The NDC has already rejected the presidential election results which Nana Akufo-Addo was declared President.
The Council advised the party resort to the court to seek redress the presidential election results if it feels unhappy about the election results.
“The Council recalls the resort to the courts to seek redress when the NPP was dissatisfied with the 2012 general election, which resulted in rather positive outcomes that led to significant reforms in Ghana’s electoral system.”
“In the same vein, the National Peace Council encourages the NDC to follow suit to deepen our democratic gains rather than taking to the streets;a potential threat that can spark post-election violence and mar the entire peaceful election process.”
