The Clergy, Politicians as well as Ghanaians have been admonished to be decorum in all their endeavors ahead of the December polls.
The new Chairman of the Voice of the Lord Evangelical Church Ghana, Apostle Charles Otibo Nartey said, since the people of Ghana can’t take the peace of the country for a ride, there is the need for all stakeholders to preach peace, unity and harmony.
He said, “Ghanaians should be politically tolerant towards others as we can’t take the peace of the country for a ride.”
Apostle Charles Otibo Nartey was inducted in to office with other national officers of the church for 4 years ahead.
He also called on Christians and Ghanaians to respect the views of others from other political divides and make sure the political atmosphere in the country accommodated viewpoints that differs from various political parties.
According to him, the Clergy as well as Christians must enable the Gospel to influence them on how to view political issues and ensure that love leads in all that they do.
He again called on Christians to remain patriotic and be agents of peace to preserve a violent free state during the election period to promote development and growth.
Speaking at the induction service in Koforidua in the Eastern Regional Capital, the Clergyman called on the youth not to allow themselves to be used as agents to foment trouble but as agents of peace to bring growth and development to the country since we have only one Ghana.
The Media was also urged be responsible in their reportage and report exactly scenes and issues devoid of personal interest to promote the sanctity of democracy for which the media is the fourth estate of the realm.
“I will also urge the Media, that their reports must be devoid of character defamation and personal attacks so that together we build Ghana,” he said.
