PUBLIC STATEMENT: By Onsy Kwame Nkrumah. First Vice-Chairman, CPP

It is important to note that the development of a country is not only measured by the provision of infrastructure and other services to the people, for which the CPP is supreme in the long history of our country but also the protection of the freedom and liberties of the citizens including the freedom of Ghanaians to exercise their franchise to choose a government that they desire to manage the off airs of the land.

Let us employ the culture of the Greeks, of ancient renown, who originated the concept of democracy, that liberty, freedom, and nation are supreme and must be upheld in sanctity above individual interests.

I wish all Ghanaians good health and peace of mind to go out in their numbers to cast their votes on December 7 and I can assure them that, the next government of the CPP will be a government of the people, by the people and for the people as our name suggests and our record of government proves.

I want to appeal to the President of Ghana as the chief custodian of the peace and stability of our country, to do the best in his mandate to protect free, fair, and transparent elections on December 7, 2020.

I wish also to remind all contestants in the elections that, what makes one a true statesman is not just the winning of elections but the dignity with which we uphold the freedom and liberty of the people to ensure that democratic elections are held in peace.

Elections that are flawed and won with brute force, make the winner a villain and a dishonorable citizen and not a hero.

The security agencies must also demonstrate their patriotism and loyalty to Ghana by acting on their mandate to protect all Ghanaians without discrimination. It is their duty to deal with trouble makers and agents of provocation and intimidation, to ensure a peaceful environment, for the country to have free, fair, and transparent elections for the survival of democracy in Ghana.
