The Northern Regional Minister Moses Magbenba has pledged his region will not participate in any activity that will bring confusion during the December 7 general elections.
Magbenba made the pledge during the commencement of a peace campaign waged by the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) in conjunction with the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) on Monday Tamale.
The campaign will see the joint bodies promote and create awareness of the need for peace before, during and after the December 7 elections which connoisseurs predict will be keenly contested, hence efforts being made by individual and groups to preserve and enhance the peace in the country.
The campaign which kicked off in Tamale will span a three-month period and will see several activities mainly through football to drum home the message across the country.
Tamale through its Regional Minister Moses Magbenba who donated Ghc 2000 towards the organization of the campaign says his region have completely signed onto the peace message delivered and will actually practice it during the elections.
“We the people of Tamale have resolved not to engage ourselves in any activity that will bring about confusion and fights,” he said.
“We are mindful of the fact that people are elected to rule over people and therefore what will be the use of gaining power if there is no one to rule over?
“Therefore we pledge to abide by the rules and regulations related to the elections and also our effort to ensure that if any trouble is recorded during the elections, it will definitely not be from Tamale.”
A match between Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko will also be organized as part of the activities of the campaign.
