Election 2024: Prioritise peace – ECOWAS Resident Representative tells Ghanaians

Ahead of the upcoming 2024 general elections, the ECOWAS Resident Representative, Ambassador Baba Gana Wakil, has urged Ghana to safeguard its longstanding peace.

According to him, Ghana is a model peaceful country and a reference point for other West African countries.

Speaking to the media on the fringes of an event held in commemoration of ECOWAS Day on the theme, ‘ECOWAS Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow,’ Ambassador Baba Gana Wakil emphasised the need for Ghanaians to ensure the elections are conducted successfully and peacefully to serve as an inspiration to other member states.

“Ghana remains a reference point and an inspiration to other member states because of the series of peaceful elections that have been taking place here.

“I think we are now going into the ninth general election successfully. Yes of course, there are always hiccups here and there but generally speaking, Ghana remains a reference point in conducting peaceful elections. And we hope that this time around too, they will maintain that reputation.

“The reputation is already well established. We want to make sure that Ghana maintains this reputation to continue to serve as an inspiration to its neighbours, especially in the sub-region.”
