Dodowa (GAR), Sept.
12, GNA – Nene Okukrubour Teye Kwesi Agyemang V, Ruler of Dodowa Kingdom, has
called on Ghanaians especially politicians to demonstrate a high level of
tolerance to ensure peaceful elections.

He said Ghanaians
acknowledged the desire of politicians to serve their country but then they
should know that Ghana belongs to all of us.

Nene Teye Agyemang
made the call at the launch of this year’s Ngmayem festival of the chiefs
and   people of the Shai Traditional
Council, at Dodowa in the Shai-Osudoku District of the Greater Accra Region.

It is on the theme:
“Sustaining Community Development Through Education.”

Nene Teye Agyemang
said the situation where some politicians were at each other’s throat whenever
they mount platforms does not augur well for the country’s infant democracy.

He said there are
some politicians whose aim is to serve and not to be served adding that there
are also some politicians whose aim at enriching themselves at the expense of
the ordinary Ghanaian.

Nene Teye Agyemang
charged political parties to conduct their campaigns based on issues, which is
devoid of insults.

He charged the youth
to resist the temptation of being used as agents to create confusion during the
elections.

The Ruler of Dodowa
Kingdom urged the chiefs to take active interest in politics and vote for
people who have the development of the country at heart.

He expressed the
hope that the festival would be celebrated in peaceful atmosphere as had been
the case.
