AFAG threaten demo over election petition verdict
The Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) has threatened to hit the streets should any of the parties involved in the election petition case refuse to accept the final ruling of the judges of the Supreme Court.
The group said the judges represent the people of Ghana hence any resistance from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) or the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will trigger a massive protest.
So far, the President and Flagbearer of the NPP in the 2012 election, Nana Akufo-Addo have pledged to go by the ruling of the judges.
Director of Operations for AFAG, David Opoku, in an interview with Citi News said they would hold the two parties to their words.
“We have heard commentary from some political actors that seeks to downplay the powers of the Supreme Court. Some say the Supreme Court justices do not have the powers to change the mandate of the people of this country,” he stated.
Mr. Opoku further mentioned, “Those nine judges are there for the good people of this country and as a group, we are ready to marshal the youth of this country to resist any of the parties that will dare to resist the verdict.”
“We believe in the rule of law and think that the rule of law must triumph at the end of the day. We are ready to protect the democracy of this country and nobody should dare bring this democracy down,” he added.
