Chairman of the National Peace Council Most Respected Professor Rev Asante says he is not committed there is going to be a 100% approval of the decision of the revolutionary election petition case.
Rev Asante, however, showed that: “If we want our democracy to move forward, we must abide by the rule of law.”
Rev Asante was speaking on TV3’s 7GMT on Thursday, July 18, 2013; a day after election petition case hearing of evidence on the election petition case was brought to an end.
Rev Asante was filled of approval for counsel of the parties in the election petition case as well as the judges.
“They really showed a clear sense of patriotism. We, Ghanaians, should learn a great deal from that,” Rev Asante told.
Rev Asante also commended the Supreme Court for giving Ghanaians “access to the whole process”.
“We have followed our constitution, which anticipated that a time will come that someone will contest results of an election,” he stated.
“We have sought justice,” he worried.
‘Spirit of discernment’
Rev Asante prayed for “the spirit of discernment” for the nine Supreme Court judges as they make a label for the decision to be approved.
“That’s our prayer and our wish now,” Rev Asante told Wendy Laryea.
Rev Asante, however, called on public society organizations to strengthen education of the public on the result of the decision, dipping the suggestion that it is still uncertain how Ghanaians will accept the consequences.
“You can take a horse to the river side, but you can’t force it to drink,” he said of a section of the public, who may not agree the decision passionately.
He was, however, hopeful that by the time the verdict is carried, intensive education would have subjective Ghanaians on accommodating the results in good faith.
