The Nationwide Peace Council states despite its attempts to make sure peace in the state some political actors have remained resolute in an endeavor to dent its name and discredit them.
At an inaugural ceremony of a 10-member committee to observe and guarantee efficient compliance of the roadmap signed by political parties to offer with functions of vigilantism, a Board member of the Council, Dr Nana S. K Asante was outraged by the recent assaults and accused its critics of currently being ignorant about the mandate of the council.
“I am hugely disturbed by the current spate of scurrilous media and personalized assaults o the integrity and general performance of the Countrywide Peace Council. It is remarkable that we must topic this to this unfair therapy in spite of our sacrifices and deserving endeavours to go after peace in this region.
“The community might not know that a stream of high powered delegation has visited us to examine our methods and working experience. For that reason, in my respectful view these misinformed but really damaging criticisms stem from a failure to value the scope of the council’s mandate,” he pressured.
He then stated that the Nationwide Peace Council Act 2011 does not give the Council the mandate to denounce the functions of any party to a dispute in the political arena.
In accordance to him, that is to make the Council neutral when it comes to mediating conflicts among political parties.
“The Nationwide Peace Council, compared with a Court of Regulation, does not have the electric power to condemn any part or even challenge an indictment againat any entity. These types of a line of procedure is crucial repugnant to the essentially facilitative and mediatory role.
“Quite aside from the limitation imposed by the NPC Act, it would be remarkably inappropriate and in truth counterproductive, if the Peace Council issued an indictment on any viral online video or listening to any allegation of unbecoming conduct,” he said.
Nana Dr S.K Asante then known as on the media and political actors to desist from attacking the Peace Council due to the fact it undermines its performance.
