Muslim students appeal for peaceful 2012 elections

The President of the Ghana Muslim Students’ Association (GMSA) has appealed to the youth to stay away from acts that could mar the coming December general elections.

Mr Rabiu Mohammed noted that the support of young and energetic people were more likely to be sought by politicians, who would be out there to cause trouble in pursuit of self-serving political agenda.

They should never accept to do the bidding of such people.

Making the appeal through the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi, he counseled tolerance, decency and responsible conduct.

This, he said, would undoubtedly help to protect the peace, unity and stability of the country.

He spoke of plans by the GMSA to team up with the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to assist the people to better understand and play their expected roles well to ensure violence-free and credible elections.

He invited other youth groups and associations to join in the effort at making the polls peaceful.
