A peace ambassador at the Office of the National Chief Imam, Clemence Gyato, has urged political parties to be cautious with their choice of words since it can bring about electoral disputes in the country.
This has become necessary due to the tensions emanating from the two major political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In a statement, Clemence Gyato “entreated political parties and their supporters to exercise circumspection in their communications to the public”.
He added that, “electoral disputes have thrown many countries into devastation and the least we can do for our motherland is to preserve the enviable peace we have”.
Notwithstanding that, he applauded the Electoral Commission and various political parties for participating in conducting a peaceful election.
“The Electoral Commission, the political parties, and Ghanaians, in general deserve plaudits for the peaceful and orderly in which the exercise was conducted,” he added.
