Ghanaians urged to maintain peace

okyeame2The Maaworaahene of Amanokrom, in the Eastern Region, Nana Obrepong Agyei I has urged Ghanaians to be disciplined in the run up to the general elections.

That, he explained was the only way to maintain the peace the country was currently enjoying.

Nana Agyei made the call at the 3rd speech and prize giving day and thanksgiving service of the Dodi Papase Senior High Technical School at Kejebi in the Volta Region.

According to him, the intemperate and unsavoury language used in the country’s political discourse posed threat to peace and stability, hence, the need for decorum by all party activists.

Ghana, he explained, was a peaceful country and must continue to enjoy the peace bequeath to Ghanaians by our forefathers by tolerating the views of others as well as eschewing political insults.

“Nature and generations unborn would not forgive us if out of greed, selfish attitude, lack of respect for human rights and the insensitivity to the plight of the citizens any instability occurs during the upcoming elections,” he said.

Nana Agyei advised the youth who are eligible to vote not to be coerced into voting twice or misconduct themselves on election day so as not to mar their future aspirations.

“The youth must be wise enough to refrain from acts that would infringe on the law because those who would push them would not follow them into jail”, he added.

Nana Agyei appealed to philanthropists and corporate institutions to create more job opportunities for the youth to help ease the burden of unemployment in the country,

He used the occasion to donate two computers and accessories and GH¢500 to support the school.
