Accra, 18 November, 2023 / 9:56 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the National Peace Council (NPC) in Ghana, among them Catholic Bishops, have condemned social media publications that they say seek to divide Ghanaians along religious lines ahead of the country’s December 2024 elections.
The NPC members urged the people of God in the West African nation to expose those behind the publications which they said are dangerous for a country that is heading into an electioneering period.
“The NPC…has observed with great concern some insinuations and publications on electronic and social media seeking to inflame religious passion into the 2024 General Elections,” they said in a statement that was shared with ACI Africa on Thursday, November 16.
They added, “The NPC and our partners wish to remind all Ghanaians of the admirable manner in which we have lived together in peace, despite our Religious, Political, and Ethnic diversity.”
The entity is comprised of the Christian Council of Ghana, the Office of the National Chief Imam, and the Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference (GCBC).
