As part of his contributions towards peaceful outcome of Ghana general election due for Monday December 7th, the Eze Ndigbo Ghana, HRM Dr Amb. Chukwudi Ihenetu (Ezeohazurume1) recently chaired a meeting attended by other Ghanian traditional rulers where the monarch calls for peace during the election.
The peace meeting entitled: Kings heart was organised by HRM DR Nana Kum Krampah 1,( Female king)of Anyan Denkyira kingdom.
In attendance were other traditional heads from every region of Ghana and some Igbo Chiefs who also contributed in advocating for peace in Ghana.
In a statement made available to Daily Sun, Eze Ihenetu advise Igbos living in Ghana to be law abiding and never to participate in Ghana’s election as this could compromise free and fairness of the election.
While commending HRM Nana and other monarchs and chiefs for their peace initiatives, Eze Ihenetu urges the contestants to take the outcome of the election in good fate.
In his words, the monarch said: “Victory should be seen by both contestants as victory for Ghanian people and not individuals.
On the implications of post election crisis, the royal father said a Ghana in election turmoil could destabilise other west African countries, hence he prayed for the peaceful outcome of the poll. ” if their is crisis in Ghana, it will affect other neighbouring countries. looking at the population of Ghana and as English speaking country, they are likely to run to Nigerian. Already we have crisis in Nigeria, how are we going to accomodate them?”
Waxing philosophical, Eze Ihenetu said the election coming up on Monday 7th will be a peaceful election.
He added that It is in pursuant of the peaceful poll that he join the peace advocacy group organised by HRM Nana and other Ghanaian chiefs.
He said as a man of peace and a leader of Igbo community, Ghana has done well. ” It is a great country that has entrenched good governance. you can never see their leaders with long convoy that is not approved by the people. it is also a country where tax payers money counts. Although it is a small country in population, it is a beautiful country where the infrastructures are working well.
My advice to the two contestants is for them to know that victory belongs to God. if any of them wins, he should go home and give God thanks and if any of them lose, he should also go home and urge his supporters to accept the results in good fate as peaceful Ghana will be of advantage to all and sundry.
