The Assin North Municipal Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mrs. Ellen Osei on Wednesday warned that the country could be thrown into a state of chaos if its peaceful democratic atmosphere was toyed with.
She therefore advised that a stop be put to irresponsible political conduct, as well as careless talks on the airwaves by both political figures and the public, saying it would not help the nation in anyway.
Mrs. Osei, who sounded the warning at the inauguration of a Constituency Inter-party Dialogue Committee in Assin Fosu, advised that Ghanaians should jealously guard the peace the nation was enjoying presently, especially during this election season when contests for political power could be very strong and uncompromising.
Similar committees are being set up in all district capitals across the country by the NCCE to oversee and supervise political activities in the various constituencies and regions towards the upcoming General Elections in December.
Mrs. Osei pointed out that the setting of the committees would also provide political parties the opportunity to engage in discussions of national interest and get to know and appreciate one another in order to minimize the use of abusive language in public.
The Central Regional Director of the NCCE, Mr. Charles Nkrumah who swore the committee members into office, applauded Ghanaians for sustaining the nation’s democracy all these years and advised that they maintain it and do nothing to jeopardize it.
The Municipal Chief Executive for Assin North, Mr. Antwi Boasiako lauded the NCCE for the move and expressed the hope that the committee would promote understanding and respect among the various political parties before, during and after the elections.
