Prof Emmanuel Asante
Most Reverend Professor Emmanuel Asante has said Ghanaians who do not understand politics should stay away from partisan politics.
Speaking at the launch of the Methodist Church Peace Campaign launch, Prof Asante, the immediate past National Peace Council Chairman said there is the need for people to refrain from all sort of political debates if they ‘don’t really understand politics’.
He added that people who do not understand the political game and its rules should not join any party rather they should stay behind for the experts to run it. This he said will help to sustain the good peace the country is enjoying.
Explaining his point further he said there are many a times that people go into serious arguments thereby resulting in violence. The sad aspect of it that most of these people who fall in these unnecessary confrontations do not have any knowledge about politics.
As a result Ghanaians should abstain from baseless political challenges that could unleash violence or disturb the peace of the nation.
He added that party followers should not see their opponents as enemies rather as brothers or sisters.
“Your political opponent is not your enemy”.
Prof Emmanuel Asante further admonished that “the need to promote peace in our political system is paramount and Ghana must be number one in all our dispensation”.
