The Ga Central Municipal Office of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in the Anyaa-Sowutuom Constituency has prearranged its Inter-Party Dialogue Committee (IPDC) ahead of the 2024 General Election at the Assembly Hall of the Ga Central Municipal Office, Anti- Aku. NCCE’s theme for the year is “Together We Can Build Ghana: So, Get Involved”.

The purpose of the gathering was to ensure mediation and the resolution of electoral conflicts within the Municipality. By doing so, stakeholders will provide the opportunity for all parties to air out their concerns and problems”.

Present were, the Municipal Chief Executive Hon. Ambrose Edward Tsegah; Coordinating Director, Mr. John Owusu, stakeholders, political party representatives, religious leaders, security agencies, Director of Electoral Commission, CHRAJ, youth associations and women Groups.

Mrs. Joana Ampomah Nkansah, the Greater Accra Deputy Director of Programmes for NCCE, in her welcome address, said, “As a good citizen, it is expected of us to do what is right for the next generation to see that, we did all that we could and this is where God has brought us. She said the programme was to ensure that we continue fighting for peace today, tomorrow and in the years to come in our homes and churches.

She continued to advise participants to check their sources for authenticity before spreading fake news on social media which could lead to conflicts. “We have come this far, let us move on with unity, love and peace, we can make it. It is God who gives peace so let us enjoy what God has us and sustain it”, she added.

The Chairman of the IPDC within the Municipality, Dr Lamido Sheikh Mohammed Jibril Sissy, said “The Inter-party Dialogue Committee is and has always been a body that will promote peace and resolve conflict before, during and after elections.

By this the NCCE is giving us all the responsibility to use the various positions to enhance the political economic and social development of our communities, through engaging all political parties to maintain peaceful coexistence. It is always important to remind ourselves of this responsibility and privilege bestowed on us to serve”.

Mrs. Nana Esi Dadzie, the Municipal Electoral Officer in her speech said “Apart from the IPDC the Electoral Commission (EC)has its own platforms that engage with their stakeholders. She said, Currently, the E.C. is organising a limited registration exercise, then later an exhibition exercise and transfer of votes and misplacement of cards from the 30th of May to the 14th of June. There will also be special voting for those who on election day could not vote due to their nature of work and that will be 2nd of December, prior to the election.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon. Andrews Edward Tsegah encouraged the people to promote peace and assured them of the Assembly’s commitment as well.
