President John Dramani Mahama has warned that whoever has any intention of disturbing the peace the country is enjoying before, during and after the elections should have a change of mind or be prepared to face the full rigours of the laws of the land when caught.
“I want to assure you that I will do everything legitimately possible to ensure that nobody disturbs the peace of this nation during and after the elections. Anybody who attempts to disturb the peace of Ghana shall be dealt with drastically by the laws of the Land. Ghana does not belong to anyone or any group of persons; Ghana belongs you all Ghanaians”, he noted.
President Mahama made this observation in a speech read on his behalf by the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Edward Doe Adjaho on the occasion of the Asogli Yam Festival at Ho on Sunday.
The President is currently attending the 71st General Assembly of the United Nations which opens on Tuesday, September 21, 2016.
He is scheduled to address the world body on Wednesday, September 21, 2016.
The Ghanaian leader who left Accra on Sunday morning is Co-Chair of the UN Advocacy Group on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will be co-hosting a number of side events related to the successful implementation and advocacy for the SDGs.
These include a GSM Association- organized event on the role of Mobile Innovation and the Private Sector towards accelerating the implementation of SDGs and achieving the 2030 Agenda.
