Most Rev Philip Naameh, President of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference and Metropolitan Archbishop of Tamale has called for a postponement in the upcoming referendum scheduled for December 17, 2019 to make way for better education and adequate sensitization.
In an interview monitored by Angelus News, the prelate noted that, “we felt that we should add our voice to it by way of assisting the Electoral Commission and the Centre for Civic Education. We feel that, the education is needed, because there are all kinds of political ways of interpreting it which is not the best, depending on who is speaking whether it is the ruling NPP or the opposition NDC”.
Archbishop Naameh further called on stakeholders to put measures in place to ensure sufficient education and sensitization on the upcoming electoral process.
Ghana will conduct a referendum alongside district level elections On December 17 2019. The exercise has however been surrounded by misconceptions on its true nature.
