The Ghana Pentecostal Council (GPC) at Koforidua, has asked Pastors in the Eastern Region to preach peace rather than using their pulpits for partisan politics.

“We appeal to all Pastors to encourage their youth to desist from all forms of violence and avoid being used by politicians to perpetual such negative acts Amankwaah, Chairman of the Pentecostal Council, made the request at a news conference, here on Thursday.

The council, among others, admonished Christians to discharge their civic responsibility by coming out in their numbers on the election day which falls on Sunday, to vote.

“If there must be a Sunday service, please do well to close early to enable our members to fully participate in this important exercise.

“Let us also jubilate and celebrate political victories after the elections with decorum not with insinuation and bitterness – we need a more united and peaceful nation. “We must display Ghana Flag as a symbol of unit and patriotism instead of party colours on the day of the inauguration of the next president,” he said.
