The Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference has noted with worry the recent political unrest in the country which could curtail the peace, and is calling on the Nana Addo led administration to take immediate action.
In a recent statement issued on Wednesday, July 22, the Bishops are calling on the government to implement recommendations spelt out by the Emile Short commission on the Ayawaso West Wuogon By-Election violence amid recent political unrest to ensure sanity in the Ghanaian setting.
The statement said “we therefore urge the government to have the courage to implement the Emile Short Commission’s recommendations on the Ayawaso West Wuogon By-Election violence, especially the sections that refer to instances of criminality”.
“This, we believe will serve as a deterrent to these criminals, who otherwise will continue to act with impunity”, they added.
On the lines of commitment to maintaining peaceful and stability in the country, the Bishops charged the two major political parties in the country to stay true to “the agreement they signed against vigilantism and restrain their members from engaging in acts of violence in the name of politics”.
A further call was placed on all to call on appropriate authorities to handle any misconduct that arises during the registration exercise.
