Don't 'hide' behind your independence to be stubborn – Peace Council urges Jean Mensa-led EC to 'listen to wisdom'

Malvi Mohammed Bin Salih

The Electoral Commission is an independent body but that is no justification for it to turn a deaf to advice and good counsel, Council member Malvi Mohammed Bin Salih told journalists on the sidelines of the launch of the National Elections Response Group.

“Independent they are, yes, but that doesn’t stop them from listening to Ghanaians, listening to the wisdom of our elders, and so on and so forth", he said.

He said: "They should not, under any circumstances, hide behind the independence to refuse to consult and listen."

He noted that the EC's success or failure can make or unmake Ghana in the 2024 general elections.

“If they put their act together and do it well, they can put Ghana together and they can place Ghana on a pedestal of peace and progress".

"But if they don’t act well, they can also break Ghana and posterity will not forgive them if it so happens.”
