Andrew OkaikoiIn a bid to unite Ghanaians and calm tempers as the Supreme Court sits finally to deliver its verdict in the 2012 presidential election petition Thursday, August 29, there will be free drinks at the Z-Bar at the World Trade Centre in Accra.
Ghanaians from all walks of life -irrespective of their political affiliation or social status - are expected to partake in this rare event at 5pm Thursday.

Chairman of the National Council on Persons with Disability, Andrew Nii Okaikoi, who is organising the event, told Myjoyonline.com that the idea is to "celebrate Ghana's constitutional era and to show the world our maturity on democratic front".

He remarked that he is of high conviction that Ghana will be the winner after today's ruling, hence the need for all to show that Ghanaians are one and also peace-loving people.

As a physically challenged person, Mr. Okaikoi observed that aside women and children, persons with disability are the most vulnerable during conflict situation.

He has therefore appealed to all and sundry to accept today's ruling by the nine judges and forge ahead as one state to move the development of Ghana to a different level for the benefit of all.
