Wa, Sept. 13, GNA –
Kuoro Salifu Dy-yakah, the Paramount Chief of the Lambussie has pointed out to
political parties that insults and hate speech would not be the determinant of
the winner of the 2016 elections.

He has therefore
advised politicians to focus on their campaign messages and desist from violent
utterances in order to help make the 2016 elections peaceful.

The Paramount Chief
gave the advice when Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, Presidential Candidate of the
New Patriotic Party (NPP) paid a courtesy call on him at Lambussie during his
four-day campaign tour of the Upper West Region.

He said the NPP and
the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) seems to enjoy a balanced support
base in the country, adding that for him, what would determine the winner of
the 2016 election would be based on how members of the various political
parties conduct themselves with regards to their utterances.

Kuoro Dy-yakah’s
advice came as a result of a survey conducted by the Media Foundation for West
Africa that revealed that NPP was leading all the political parties in terms of
insults and closely followed by the NDC.

The Paramount Chief
appealed to Nana Addo to advice his party communicators to be mindful of their
speeches and refrain from violent utterances.“They should redirect their
energies to the party’s campaign message in order to make the party attractive
in a manner that will enhance the party’s fortunes in the December elections”,
he noted.

Kuoro Dy-yakah said
some people believe that Ghana would “catch fire” in the coming elections,
describing the notion as an erroneous impression.

He said Ghanaians
love peace and would rather vote against any party preaching war.
