Peace is Important in our December 7th, 2020 Elections Ghana

0

The chief executive officer of Orcd Ghana calls for peaceful elections in Ghana. He made this statement when addressing Bimoba Youth association in Techiman, Bono East Region. He said most Ghanaians believe that the country is a peaceful but that was a fallacy. We must work for and towards the peace we need. The violence at Ayawaso West Wagon, the failure of the main opposition and the government to resolve the issues of the violence during local level, Parliamentary and Presidential elections amicably, the regrettable dismissal of the Ayawaso West Wuogon Commission of Enquiry report in its white paper, the failure of state agencies like the Ghana Police Service to bring the perpetrators of the violence to book, are enough to remind Ghanaians of the need to drum home the peace we are all praying for.The need for peaceful elections is more important than the elections itself. For if there is no peace before, during and after the elections, both the victor and the vanquished will have no reason to celebrate and lessons to learn, respectively.

To ensure peaceful elections, the effort of all stakeholders, especially the major players like the Electoral Commission, the political parties and the government must instill trust, confidence, commitment and most importantly, patriotism in citizens. Current situations in the country, however, show meaningless verbal assurances of peace, with no commitment to same.

The unfortunate posture of the two major political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) with regard to vigilante groups and the quest to disband them are worrying. The daily commentary by political activists and party surrogates, inflaming tensions is a powdered keg waiting to blast. The lack of trust in the Ghana Police Service and other security agencies to deal with politically motivated issues without fear or favour is something we should all worry about

Anyone can become angry, that is easy. However, to be angry at the right person, to the right degree, at the right time for the right purpose and in the right way is not easy. This is the reason why in our quest to win elections, introspection is necessary to determine our true selves. Most people in Ghana are not interested in politics to serve, but interested in the benefit that it gives.

If our motivation for politics is wealth and riches, then of course, we will be ready to do anything to achieve our objective. The motivation of a true leader is to help improve upon lives.

Political parties who lose elections must realize that failure is a detour, not a dead end. State institutions should implement to the letter, rules and regulations that help better govern the country.

ORCD GHANA speaks directly to the people of Nigeria. Nigeria is a big nation in Africa and you can be proud of the development you’ve made.We encourage you to embrace the long tested culture of peace during and after the upcoming general elections.The chief executive officer of ORCD Ghana made these comments during his interaction with PNC youth in Techiman, Bono East Regional capital of Ghana. He calls on the youth in Nigeria to preach the message of peace as Nigeria prepares for 2019 general elections. He further explained that collectively, Nigerians won their independence, emerged from military rule and strengthened democratic institutions. You’ve strived to overcome division and to turn Nigeria’s diversity into a source of strength. You’ve worked hard to improve the lives of your families and to build the largest economy in Africa.Now you have a remarkable chance to help write the next chapter of Nigeria’s progress by voting in the upcoming elections.For elections to be credible, they must be free, fair and peaceful. All Nigerians must be able to cast their votes without intimidation or fear.
So, the C.E.O of ORCD GHANA, Mr. Adamu Bakinam Mathew call on all leaders and candidates to make it clear to their supporters that violence has no place in democratic elections—and that they will not incite, support or engage in any kind of violence before, during, or after the votes are counted.Mr. Bakinam calls on all Nigerians to peacefully express their views and to reject the voices of those who call for violence.

When elections are free and fair, it is the responsibility of all citizens to help keep the peace, no matter who wins. Successful elections and democratic progress will help Nigeria meet the urgent challenges you face today especiallyBoko Haram. LONG LIVE NIGERIA,LONG LIVE AFRICA

Appeal for funds to support Dung- Gberuk primary school @ Bunkperugu Nankpanduri district

0



The above pictures are the school structure of Dung-Laar Gberuk primary school.The school is located at Bunkpurugu-Nakpanduri district of the northern region of Ghana( the Guangbiang electoral area near Binde). It was constructed in the year 1994 with current population of about 170 pupils ranging from primary 1 to 6. The said school was not fortunate to have had a heavy rainstorm which removed the entire roof and rendered the school to be useless till date. Several attempts had been made by the clan head and the concerned youth of the area to come to the aid of the fixing of the roof but to no avail.
The indigenes of the people of Dung-Laar Gberuk and for that matter the community head and that of the headteacher are therefore, appealing to NGO’s, philanthropists, Social organizations etc to come to the aid of the future generation who are currently under the abandoned structure which served as a death trap to their lives. Any kind of help or support to the school would be highly appreciated.
Many thanks.
