Youth advised against political violence

By gna

The Reverend Enoch Osafo, Pastor in charge of the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI), Taifa Central Branch, has advised the youth not allow themselves to be used as instruments of violence during the December 7 elections.

Rev Osafo condemned politicians who instigated the youth by offering them money and alcohol to engage in violence.

In a sermon on Sunday, Rev Osafo urged the youth to say no to politicians who would contract them to engage in any form of violence.

Rev. Osafo noted that people who often engaged in violence were normally abandoned after they were apprehended by the law enforcers.

He further tasked the congregation to go out in their numbers to exercise their franchise on December 7, without engaging in any form of violence.

“As citizens of the land we are required to exercise our franchise but we need not to allow ourselves to be used as instruments of violence. As soon as you cast your votes leave the voting centres for home peacefully and wait for counting and declaration of results.”

He also reminded the congregation of the need to register with the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
