Mr. Asiedu Nketia spoke on the NDC’s commitment to electoral integrity and its willingness to address fundamental challenges harming Ghana’s democratic process.

He emphasized the need of a moral community rising up and taking aggressive steps to achieve peaceful elections in December 2024.

He stated that in order to help avert violence in the December elections, religious leaders, traditional authorities, and civil society organizations must begin to call on state institutions participating in election administration to approach their responsibilities with professionalism, fairness, and honesty.

Mr. Asiedu Nketia stated that moral society should not wait till November or December to demand the required reforms to ensure free and fair elections.

“The officials serving in these institutions, security, judiciary and the Electoral Commission must constantly be reminded of their oaths of office”, he said.

Mr Nketia voiced worry about Ghanaians’ economic issues, expecting a challenging year ahead owing to the implementation of high taxes on businesses and individuals. He blamed last year’s difficulties on mismanagement and called for government intervention to alleviate the burden on citizens.
