The Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference (GCBC) has condemned the violence that took place at the La Bawaleshi Park in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency during the by-election on Thursday January 31, 2019.

A statement issued by the Conference and signed by its Secretary General, Very Rev. Fr. Lazarus Anondee, said ‘’ we condemn in no uncertain terms the reported shootings and assaults perpetrated by some unidentified groups resulting in injuries. Of particular concern is the reported use of vigilante groups to disturb the peace and quiet of the by-election’’.

The GCBC said such incidents are a threat to the country’s democracy and draws back the gains and successes chalked in the democratic process.

‘’The GCBC would like to state that; these incidents do not only pose a serious threat to our democracy but will also certainly draw back the progress and successes of our democratic gains. In addition, such manifestations of lawlessness and insecurity do not augur well for us as a nation as we prepare for the 2020 general elections’’ the statement added.
