Pastor Samuel Adama Larmie, President of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church, has called on Ghanaians to raise and fly the flag of Ghana when the Justices of the Supreme Court give their ruling on Thursday.
Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Monday, Pastor Larmie said Ghana has gained international recognition for its quest for peace and it is important to maintain it.
He said when the Justices of the Supreme Court deliver their verdict on the election petition, Ghanaians from the political divide should accept the results and fly the flag of Ghana in order to promote peace.
He said the flag of Ghana is permanent and more important than any other flag and it is imperative that it flies high in every part of the country after the Court ruling.
“As we await the verdict of the Supreme Court, God is expecting us to control our tongues and avoid casting insinuations and I will urge all members of the Adventist Church including members of other religious groups to be decent in their language at all times”, he advised.
He said Ghana’s democracy would flourish and move to another level if there would be comportment after the Court’s verdict adding that victors should not celebrate but comport themselves to promote peace.
He said the blessing of God is upon the country and called on all the religious organisations to pray fervently for the maintenance of peace.
