Ghana: Chief Condemns Abusive Language On Political Platforms

The Chief of Dunkwa-on-Offin, Nana Obeng Nuako II has stated that inflammatory and abusive language should not be used in political campaign in the area.

He noted that the practice if not checked could lead to tension and bring dissatisfaction and intolerance among the people.

According to him, it was very important for all politicians to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner, during and after the December 7 general election.

Nana Obeng Nuako II issued this directive during the sixth Royal Anniversary celebration of his installation at Dunkwa last week.

He noted that there have been so many elections held in the country but said tension seems to be heightened in this year's election hence the need to avoid inflammatory statements.

The chief entreated the people of good economic and social standing to support the development of the town.

Nana Nuako used the occasion to thank the people for their support over the years and advised them to take their children's education seriously since that is the only legacy they can give their children to face the future.

The Dunkwahene also called on the youth to go into farming since it was very lucrative.

The anniversary celebration was attended by Odeneho Gyapong Ababio, Omanhene of Sefwi Bekwai, Nana Essel Mensah, an Accra High Court Judge, Wassa Fiase Adontenhene, Nana Nturi Twum, Prince K. Tsibo and Bishop Edmund Danso Amoah.

Others included pastors, the municipal police commander and all parliamentary candidates of the political parties who assured the chief and the people of a peaceful campaign.

Osagyefo Emimil, Omanhene of Wassa Fiase, presided over the anniversary celebration.
