Politicians should show commitment to peace


Politicians should show commitment to peace Koforidua, Jan. 25, GNA-The Eastern Regional Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church, Reverend Alex Ofori-Amankwa, has urged politicians to show commitment to peace to ensure that the December General election is held in peaceful atmosphere.

He also called on pastors to concentrate on preaching what was right for the transformation of the society and to guard against involving themselves in politics, adding that pastors preaching politics were dangerous society.

Speaking in an interview with GNA in Koforidua, Rev. Ofori-Amankwa, said the 2012 election placed an enormous task on all politicians to ensure that they conducted their campaigns and all programs in a peaceful manner.

“One could not create the impression that he or she was all for peace whiles he acted provocatively through his words and deeds.”

He stressed the need for politicians to do away with politics of insults, personal interest and the “ do and die affair” since the electorates were more than enlightened and would vote on issues.

 Reverend Amankwa noted that the 2012 election was a critical one that had the tendency to decide the fate of the nation and it behooved on all politicians, whether in power or opposition to lead the crusade for a peaceful election.
