The Chief of Ngleshie-Lafa Barima, Nii Ayi Okufubour I, has appealed to the leadership of political parties to commit themselves to the peace and unity of the country before, during and after the December 7 elections.
According to him, that is the only way to maintain the peace and unity the country is enjoying.
Nii Ayi Okufubour I, said this in an interview with the Ghanaianvoiceonline at Weija, a suburb of Accra in the Greater Accra region.
Nii charged politicians to exhibit leadership by example to avoid using abusive and vulgar words on their platforms to protect the peace in the country to facilitate the nation’s development.
He noted this would dissuade their supporters, members and followers from doing same when they meet their opponents since peace cannot be bought and political parties should be guided by democratic principles and tenants to ensure safety of voters and their followers.
Nii Ayi Okufubour I, also advised politicians to desist from any act that could ruin the peace and stability and they should think about Ghana first now that they are fighting for political power.
He stated that they should see themselves as people with one aim but using different methods to achieve them and that they should not encourage their supporters to attack followers of other parties.
Nii Ayi Okufubour I, cautioned the youth to be weary of politicians who come to them only on campaign seasons when they needed their votes.
He therefore admonished religious leaders and traditional leaders to let their voices be heard when the Electoral Commission who is the sole arbiter goes wrong.
