Former president, John Agyekum Kufour, has urged politicians and their supporters to desist from politics of insults and lies.
He asked them to engage in issues that would help transform the lives of the majority of Ghanaians.
Mr Kufour made the call at a festival to celebrate the Suma Akwantukese festival at Suma at Jaman North in the Brong Ahafo region. Present was the paramount chief in the area Odeneho Dr. Affram Brempong III.
The ex-president urged party members and supporters of the various political parties to take the forthcoming elections more seriously, reminding them that is the only and surest way through which they could exercise their franchise legitimately as Ghanaians.
The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC), Johnson Aseidu Nketia who attended the programme on behalf of President John Mahama cautioned the chiefs to stay away from partisan politics.
He said the chiefs ruled over people who supported different political parties and their involvement in politics may cause some instability in their various communities.
He indicated that although the chiefs had the right to be part of any political party, they should not make their support for any party public.
