The National House of Chiefs (NHC) says it was worried about the rising political tension in the country at the time of escalating COVID-19 infection, and other socio-economic challenges in the country.

According to the chiefs, it seemed “political leaders in the country appear to be more concern about winning power than the development needs and happiness of our people”.

These were contained in a statement jointly signed by Togbe Afede XIV, President and Daasebre Kwebu Ewusi VII, Vice President of the House and issued in Kumasi, on Sunday  (May 31) evening.

According to the statement, what Ghana needed now was absolute peace and unity to fight the further spread of COVID-19 and other development challenges facing the nation.

The House stressed the need for the Electoral Commission to ensure that every qualified person was registered in the upcoming voters’ registration exercise to ensure that all eligible Ghanaians exercised their franchise in a free, fair and transparent manner, in the December elections.

The statement called on Ghanaians to make a sober reflection and evaluation of the country’s progress over the years and recommit themselves to the ideals that inspired the founding fathers of the nation.

It said as chiefs, they had a responsibility and duty to speak objectively on national issues and in defense of national interest.

The statement called on “all Ghanaians to subordinate individual interest and political party loyalty to the national desire for peace, unity and development”.
