THE ANGLICAN Archbishop of Kumasi, Rt. Rev. Dr. Yinkah Sarfo, has advised Ghanaians, particularly politicians, to continue to live in peace after the burial of the late President John Evans Atta Mills.

He said the demise of the late president should bring everyone together as people had demonstrated in the last few weeks after the death of the president.

Speaking on Angel FM, a local radio station based in Kumasi, the Anglican Archbishop appealed to Ghanaians to eschew conflicts and politics of invectives that could undermine the peace in the country.

'If the demise of His Excellency John Evans Atta Mills can release the political tension and unite us, then I entreat all to desist from abusive languages and unsubstantiated and baseless accusations during the electioneering period,' he admonished.

He said Ghanaians had come of age and should not entertain politics of insults but vote for the party that came out with good policies.

The clergyman cautioned the media, especially the electronic, to ensure that those who phoned into their programmes did not disturb the peace in the country and also stop them from using intemperate languages.

The Archbishop praised Ghanaians for conducting themselves whilst mourning the late president, adding, 'Ghanaians have demonstrated that indeed unity is strength.'

'Since the demise of President John Evans Atta Mills, we have all shown love and the whole world has seen that Ghana is a peaceful nation,' he added.

He also advised Ghanaians not to politicize the death of President Mills.
