“One nation, one people and Ghana is the only country we have”. This solemnly chorus was sung by the Member of Parliament (MP), for Tema East, Daniel Titus Glover.

The New Patriotic Party MP made this observation on Adom FM on Thursday.

The reason behind this call was to create awareness for a peaceful atmosphere in his constituency during and after the final verdict of the 2012 election petition is declared by the Supreme Court.

He however called on his colleague MP’s to emulate such methodology across the nation so as Ghana will remain a peaceful country.

According to him, despite the outcome of the election petition, Ghanaians should remain calm. Anarchy he believes will not help develop a country as he cites an example with war African countries which are now redeveloping.

“I will call on my constituency executives to discuss how we are going to maintain peace in Tema East. I will talk to all the NDC members in the constituency so we unite and demonstrate to our followers that it is not about clubs, machetes and guns because what is going on in other countries, we (Ghanaians) will not allow that here.

“…I will sit the NDC and NPP followers down; it’s not just a saying…we should walk the talk… It’s not just walking on the streets of Tema with banners writing ‘Let’s maintain peace after Supreme Court ruling’, that is not what we are going to do. We must all accept the final verdict of the election petition ruling in good faith,” he stated.

However, he lauded the police supremacy over crime in recent times and called on them ones again to be vigilant in the wait for the final verdict of the election petition final judgement.

“The police must be professional in their work, they should be neutral. They (the Police) are not working for the government, they are working for the State. They are working but they should work harder so we can applaud them. Not the Police alone but other government security agencies,” he said on Adom FM.
