The Convention is under the theme, “Reviving Adventist Women and Young Ladies For Mission”, and being attended by 388 participants from all the three administrative districts of the Conference, with membership comprising  part of the Western, Ashanti and Brong-Ahafo Regions.

Pastor Mensah said the current political landscape in the country punctuated with insults and unsavoury comments and retorts in both print and electronic media could be spell doom if nothing was done about it.

He called on the leadership of the various political parties and politicians to call such serial callers to order before their unguarded language or comments could spark trouble for the nation.

Pastor Mensah asked the people of Ghana to show “true love” for each other, a love without blemish stressing that was the only way the principle of forgiveness could thrive in one’s day-to-day affair, thereby bringing peace in the country even in the face of extreme provocation..

He suggested that individual chiefs could change any bubbling explosive situation in their communities or areas by inviting unruly politicians for a pep-talk to change for the better.

He reiterated that the Electoral Commission have a major part to play to make the 2012 general elections peaceful and successful by not uncompromising on standards.
