The Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), Sulemana Braimah, says the president’s call for political opponents to show respect to each other, is in the right direction.

President John Dramani Mahama, Tuesday, indicated that the use of insults persist and has characterized the country’s politics.

Speaking at the Flagstaff House, President Mahama said it is about time politicians saw themselves as friends and not enemies.

Meanwhile, the Executive Director of MFWA noted that the use of indecent language come up during political season but where the acts goes out of hand, it becomes an issue of concern.
