Its an election season, choose your words carefully – MCE

Agona Swedru (C/R), Mar. 7, GNA – Mr Samuel Oppong, Agona West Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) has cautioned Ghanaians to be careful about choice of words during the partisan campaign period.

He said ‘I would like to remind us all we are in an election year and we need to exercise a lot of patience so as not to infuriate others’.

Mr Oppong made this known when he addressed parade of school children, and a cross- section of people to mark 59th Independence Day anniversary celebration at Agona Swedru.

In all 29 private and public primary schools, 19 Junior High Schools and 6 Senior High schools took part in the parade.

Abork Preparatory School emerged as over all best in the march past in the basic level while Agona Swedru School of Business (SWESBUS) was adjudged the best in Senior High Schools.

The MCE appealed to Ghanaians to try as much as possible to bury any ethnic differences and see each other as one people with one destiny.

Mr Oppong urged the people of the country not to allow their political differences create enmity among them to ensure peaceful elections in the 2016.

‘We should ensure that the peace and unity that have existed in this nation for several decades are maintained,’ the MCE said.

He called on the political commentators and serial callers to desist from insults and rather show respect to each other.

Mr Oppong commended Miss Mavis Appiah, formerly of Blessed Assurance Preparatory School, who emerged as the best candidate in the Municipality in the 2015 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Mr Steve Amoah, Agona West Director of Education, called on the stakeholders in education to help promote quality education in the area.

Nana Kobina Botwe II, Adontenhene of Nyakrom Traditional Area and Swedruhene, chastised parents for neglecting their responsibilities to cater for their children.

He said it is better to educate your children to become responsible leaders than to spend on frivolous things.
