“To this extent, in the Constitution of the national moral vision that is undertaken through the conversations
and discussions of this Conference, it is my fervent hope that all issues will be examined from the sure
foundation of law, equity and good conscience. It is my conviction that in our kaleidoscope of ethnicities,
belief systems, vocations and talents, the elements of the laws of Ghana, the rules of equity, and innate
values that flow from good conscience can surely bind our hearts and minds together and assist us to arrive
at a nationally accepted vision of morality. Such a vision can then drive the mind with which we walk, talk and
work together, thus aiding us to uphold rights, give entitlements and insist on obligations, whether at home,
workplaces or on the roads. It is my suggestion that this is the surest way to weave harmony and coherence
into the diversities of our nation”, she said.
