For Immediate Release:CCG Statement On The Need For Peace In The Country

   General Secretary-CCG

We bring you greetings from the Christian Council of Ghana.

We thank God for granting us grace to cast our votes on December 7, 2020 in the just ended Presidential and Parliamentary Elections.

The Council is deeply concerned about the tensions that have followed the declaration of the Presidential results by the Electoral Commission (EC).

The CCG is working to engage all stakeholders to ensure that we do not compromise the peace of the country.

To this end, the Council has identified the following areas that need urgent action to ensure lasting peace in our nation:

• We call on the EC to as a matter of urgency come out with a clear statement on the state of the constituencies that have challenges with the election results

• We are concerned that the government has been quiet about the unfortunate killings that took place in certain constituencies during the

• Elections - We admonish the government to ensure the investigation of the killings and bring the culprits to book.

• We appeal to the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to avoid statements that have the tendency to inflame passion and cause mayhem in the country. We entreat them to desist from the street protests and agitations and rather resort to the court to seek redress for their concerns in accordance with the law.

• We appeal to the support groups of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to be temperate in their discourses especially in the media.

• We call on the security agencies to be professional in the exercise of their duties concerning the Election related issues.

• We admonish Christian politicians to ensure that they bring their faith values of love and peace to bear and uphold the name of Jesus Christ who is the Prince of Peace.

We call on all Ghanaians to remain calm and join the Council to continue to pray for peace for our country Ghana.

God bless you.

God bless you.
