The Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gideon Boako has called for the delivery of justice before electoral reforms in the presidential election petition.

He observed that electoral reforms in the country were imminent, but should be preceded by the delivery of justice to help promote peace in the country.

Mr. Boako noted that NPP was banking its hopes on the Supreme Court justices to determine the genuine winner of 2012 presidential polls.

Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, Mr. Boako insisted that Ghanaians do not want electoral reforms without justice, reiterating that ?we desire justice?.

According to him, the NPP has firm belief in the nine justices of the Supreme Court to determine the case.

Mr. Boako noted that the judgment of the Supreme Court must reflect the opinion and expectation of Ghanaians.

He said although peace was the supreme desire of the NPP, verbal promises alone by Nana Akufo-Addo and other party bigwigs would not adequately ensure peace in the country.

The NPP organizer insisted that the delivery of justice would automatically result in peaceful co-existence.

The sustenance of peace in Ghana is in the hands of the nine Supreme Court justices, he indicated.

Mr. Boako also slammed civil society organizations, especially the Peace Council and West Africa Network for Peace for what he termed weird behaviour and utterances in recent times.

When the NPP was calling for peace in the initial stages of the hearing of the presidential election petition, the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) kept mute, he observed.

The Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer noted that the CSOs preached peace immediately President Mahama called for peace after Supreme Court verdict.

Mr. Boako urged Ghanaians to commend the 2012 presidential candidate of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo for promoting peace in the country.

He said Nana Akufo-Addo?s decision to seek redress in court after the polls enriched Ghana?s democratic dispensation.
