Eric Bekoe warns against violence in Ghana elections

Eric Bekoe warns against violence in Ghana elections

Eric Bekoe preaches peace in Ghana elections

Eric Bekoe has adviced his fellow youth not to be used as agents of war in the upcoming general elections.

Ghana goes to the polls on December 7 to elect Members of Parliament and also a President.

All political parties concluded active campaigning on Wednesday, 24 hours to election day.

There are fears this election could be marred by violence with the stiff challenge between competing groups and individuals.

But the Berekum Chelsea striker who witnessed the devastating effect of violence in the Egyptian uprising, has urged the youth to refrain from any deliberate plot which will disrupt the relative peace being enjoyed in Ghana.

“In life you never cherish what you have unless you lose it,” he said.

“I am a witness to what happened in Egypt and also saw what happened to Libya, Cote D’Ivoire, Tunisia, Syria, Uganda and Co.

“In this upcoming election, never let someone use you as a tool for war after he have fled with their families out of the country.

“Children of mother Ghana, don’t let anyone who is hungry for power use us as a tool for war because we all one people.”

This year’s election appear to be a two-horse race between the ruling National Democratic Congress led by President John Mahama and opposition New Patriotic Party with Nana Akuffo-Addo as its flag bearer.
