The Christian Council of Ghana has warned against any form(s) of civil unrest ahead of the 2016 general elections charging Ghanaians to look beyond the partisan affiliation of the two major political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Calling on Ghanaians for a much peaceful poll come the November 7th elections, general secretary of the Christian Council, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong argued that the piece and stability of the country was much important than that of the two contending parties as he further expressed concern over the seeming political tension in the country ahead of the much anticipated elections.
The concerns of the Christian Council of Ghana follows much warning by security experts especially as it has been documented to be a deciding factor for both parties. Victory for the ruling NDC is feared to plunge the opposition NPP to 12 years in opposition, the longest time the party has been out of government since it was formed in 1991 whiles victory for the NPP will limit President John Mahama to one-term presidency – a historic first since the Fourth Republic began in 1992.
