President Mahama calls for political tolerance

By GNA

Kasoa (C/R), Aug. 17, GNA – President John Dramani Mahama on Friday began a two-day tour of the Central Region and Western regions with a call on Ghanians to exhibit a high level of tolerance in political campaign leading to the December polls.

He said elections were not about insults but the advertisement of political ideas and should therefore, not be characterised by attacks and character assassination.

President Mahama made the call when addressing the chiefs and people of Kasoa in the Central Region at the beginning of a two-day tour.

Apart from thanking Ghanaians for their contributions towards the funeral celebration of President John Evans Atta Mills, President Mahama would also interact with opinion leaders, market women and party executives in the two regions.

In the Central Region, President Mahama would address durbars at Mankessim, Cape Coast Central Market and interact with National Democratic Congress (NDC) executives.

President Mahama called on members of the NDC to adhere to the virtues of the late President Mills by remaining peaceful and respectful in their political discourse.

“The late President Mills stood for peace, unity and honesty and there is the need to standby those virtues to move the country forward,” he said.

Neenyi Agyemang Otu Otabil III, Awutu Manhene, commended the NDC government, particularly the late President Mills, for constructing a number of good roads and providing pupils in the area with free school uniforms and exercise books.

He appealed to politicians to eschew negative tendencies that could undermine the prevailing peace and stability in the country.
