The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has called on the public to uphold the peace of the nation after the supreme court verdict on the 2020 election petition.
In a statement, the NCCE noted that Media has been a crucial partner that has so far helped the Ghanaian public follow the Court proceedings through live feed.
It therefore appealled to practitioners not to lower the bar in discussing the issues after the verdict in order not to cause disaffection towards the judges or undermine the Judiciary.
"In line with NCCE’s theme for the year: 'We Are One: Ghana First', the Commission encourages Ghanaians to always consider Ghana first in our engagements, endeavours, discourses and even in our differences," NCCE stated.
It added that,"Thus, even as we embrace peace and unity to ensure cohesion after the verdict, we have to remind ourselves of the need to work together to promote the growth and stability of our democracy. "
Meanwhile, the NCCE stated that Ghana belongs to every Ghanaian, adding therefore that all have a responsibility to not just respect the Rule of Law, but to exemplify traits of oneness as a country.
"We must always be mindful not to put our personal or party interests above that of Country. To preserve our heritage and democracy, we have to put Ghana first all the time," NCCE added.
