Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Deputy Minister of Information, on Friday advised politicians not to use intemperate languages on political platforms…“spend your energies on helping solve challenges confronting the nations”.
He said job creation, equitable distribution of safe drinking water, road constructions and provisions of classroom blocks were critical national issues worth considering for solutions.
Mr Ablakwa was speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at the on-going Third Ghana Policy Dialogue Fair organized by the Ministry of Information on the theme: “Building Together In a Better Ghana”.
The Deputy Minister renewed his commitment towards contributing to the peace that exists in the country stressing that “when the list of politicians who use intemperate languages are put out, my name (Mr Ablakwa) does not come up.”
Dilating on an earlier advice by the Reverend Dr Sam Kisseadoo, President of the Faithful Ministries International, for the youth not to allow politicians to use them in electoral violence, the Minister lauded the advice.
Mr Ablakwa said Rev Kisseadoo’s advice was timely and also reminded politicians not to disrupt the nation’s democratic credentials or mar the peaceful electoral process.
He said he was happy the speaker dwelt on the need for the citizenry to apply principles and values that would keep the family unit closely knitted.
Mr Ablakwa said strong families were crucial to building stronger nations.
