The Olebu branch of the Konkomba Youth Association (KOYA) on Saturday outdoored Warrant Officer 1 Robert Nsime Tangwi as the third ‘Unachinpoan-bor’ or youth chief of the Konkomba community in the area, in Accra.
The ceremony brought together traditional leaders, government officials, Konkomba residents in Olebu and national executives of KOYA.
Mr. Charles Nyosah, the National President of KOYA, urged all Konkombas in Ghana who qualified to vote to take part in the December 7 polls.
He stated that politics was about ideas and not disturbances, adding that “the contest is about ideas and not violence, intimidation, destruction and casting of insinuations”.
Mr. Nyosah urged political leaders to impress upon their supporters to conduct their campaign in a more civilised manner.
He said Ghanaians existed as one people before the formation of political parties, adding “Let us not forget that relations existed before the advent of political parties”.
Party politics, Mr. Nyosah indicated should aim at bringing development to the nation and not division, saying “united we stand, divided we fall”.
He urged Ghanaians to come out as a more united people to be able to fight poverty, disease, and illiteracy.
Mr. Nyosah said “Let us eschew violence. We should come out as one body to fight challenges such as poverty, diseases and illiteracy that has engulfed us”.
