Diasporian News of Sunday, 2 December 2012
On Friday 7th December,2012, Ghanaians will go to polls for the sixth time under the Fourth Republic to elect a President and Parliamentarians.We need to protect our ever enviable national peace and freedom. Be your brother's keeper for mutual peace; together, we must rule out mayhem.We must elect in Peace; and we must live in Peace after the elections. Forever Ghana must progress.
One song keeps uniting Ghanaians since 6th March, 1957. It is our national anthem composed by Sir. Phillip Comi Gbeho of blessed memory, in his God's given wisdom; he composed our national anthem in a form of prayer. Consider the words of the anthem and you will understand why Ghana lives in distinction under God's divine favour.
Ghana has earned the reference mark on the practice of democracy in Africa. This is the reason why President Obama singled her out as the destination for his first visit to the continent. The world is watching us and we are an inspiration to many. We should desist from acts that would mar these credentials. To maintain and advance it, we need to work collectively and unceasingly on it.
We have advanced in the practice of good co-existence. That is all what life is about; even political opponents must be esteemed because we need them to make the political process more meaningful and accepted. We must shine brighter across the lights of our differences.
It sounds simple but to maintain our integrity, we must resort to the self-control attitude that we possess as Ghanaians.
Christmas is close and this is the wish of NPPFrance:
May we respect our neighbours,
May we stay out of trouble,
May the angels of our blessed homeland protect us,
May God accept our peace prayers,
Happy Elections to you all and Merry Christmas to you all.
