Ghana’s bishops decry attacks following presidential election

December 16, 2016

The bishops of Ghana have called upon police to protect political opponents following the December 7 presidential election.

While congratulating “all Ghanaians for conducting themselves so very well throughout the electoral process,” the bishops urged “political party supporters who have gone about vandalizing national and private assets, and assaulting persons perceived to as opponents, to desist from these acts of lawlessness.”

“We hereby call on the appropriate security agencies to enforce the laws of the land and ensure the safety of life and property of Ghanaians,” the bishops added.
