WANEP calls On Ghanaians to be circumspect in their utterances

 

Executive Director of West Africa Network for Peace Building (WANEP), Emmanuel Bombande has called on Ghanaians to be circumspect in their utterances as the nation prepares towards the December 2012 polls.

According to him, the rampant call for a peaceful election can be attributed to hate speeches by politicians.

In an interview with Gold News on the side lines of a political forum organized by the International Fellowships Programmes Alumni Association of Ghana (IFPAAG), Emmanuel Bombande said the peace of the nation is paramount hence its continuous propagation.

 He indicated that the psyche of Ghanaians in understanding political issues should be taken into consideration by politicians.

“Let us not pretend that some of the political incitement that got to the point of a Member of Parliament calling on one ethnic group to rise up against another ethnic group, did not psychologically get into the people”, he said.

The Executive Director of West Africa Network for Peace Building (WANEP), Emmanuel Bombande also urged the various political parties to use this solemn moment to unite the nation.

“The passing on of our dear president has created a new political environment which is a positive one that we must sustain. Ghanaians will be very appreciative to peaceful politicians and appall any language that seeks to remind people of their differences rather than what binds them together.
