The statement said the GBA believes that there is a corporate Ghana and the 24 million Ghanaians are all shareholders adding that the success in the governmental processes inures to the benefit of all Ghanaians.

It is therefore in the interest of all Ghanaians especially those who do not agree with the reasoning of the judges to accept the verdict so that we can move on in resolving important national issues such as the economy, education, corruption, agriculture and the judicious use of our resources for the benefit of all”.
The statement said GBA would avail itself at all times, ready to assist in the development of the country, “we again call upon the political parties, on the chiefs and elders, on churches and all other religious bodies and governance think tanks to work harder so that we shall continue to be a beacon of hope for Africa”.
