Nation’s progress depends on attitude of the citizenry – CPP

The Conventions People’s Party (CPP) has avowed that the nation’s progress largely depends on the attitudes of the citizenry and thus, encouraged them not to take the peace, security and stability of the nation for granted.

 “We can be grateful to ourselves for the various roles we have played not to allow the nation to disintegrate despite the many pieces of evidence of nation-wrecking trigger elements amongst us, but we must be careful not to take our peace for granted.”

A statement signed and issued by Professor Edmund Delle, the National Chairman of the CPP, said, “We need to encourage and promote the things that have kept us together and promoted unity despite the threats of deeds that may tear us apart, our boarding school system has contributed greatly in creating harmony and cohesion amongst us despite our differences, our secularity has allowed for the exercise of religious liberty without anyone feeling less important or forced to exercise some faith or belief.

“The unitary form of government and maintenance of political pluralism have allowed for the expression of all manner of views including unethical and reprehensible ones, that means we must shun the elements that may threaten our peace such as intolerance, greed, abuse of power, and disrespecting the views of others.

“We wish the citizenry hearty lifestyles that must be reflective to enable the nation identify and stick to her mandate as the beacon of democracy and hope of Africa, to enable us to find inspiration in the deeds of our forebears.

“May we learn from the mistakes of our forebears to avert ours, learn to live lives that will inspire generations following us, bless our homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong.” –
