Machiavellian tactics of politicians must not divide us – GBA Prez
President of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), Yaw Acheampong Boafo, has advised Ghanaians not to let politicians divide them during the election season. He urged Ghanaians to exercise their civic rights regardless of which political party is in power.
In his New Year Message, Acheampong Boafo emphasized the importance of unity and diversity, urging citizens to uphold the values of their forefathers and not allow politicians to divide them on tribal or religious grounds. He also expressed the commitment of the GBA to collaborate with the judiciary and the Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Gertrude Torkonoo, to ensure access to justice reforms for all Ghanaians.
Acheampong Boafo encouraged members of the GBA to conduct their elections with decorum and set high standards, reminding them that they are all stakeholders in the development of Ghana.
