Gomoaba Apata Kofi V, Gyantuahene of Gomoa Ajumako has advised political parties contesting the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary elections to accept the results to help move the country forward. Gomoaba Kofi, Chief of Gomoa Pomadze near, Winneba-Junction said Ghanaians expects to have clean and credible election results devoid of litigation and violence to promote peace and stability.
He said this when he addressed the chiefs and the people of Gomoa Pomadze to mark this year’s Annual Yam festival celebration.
Gomoaba Kofi noted that elections are a game of chance and so automatically one will win and other would lose and this should not bring war as it had had happened in some neighbouring countries.
The Gyantuahene asserted that conflict after elections does not augur well for the nation’s developmental policies and programmes.
He therefore advised the leaders and supporters to accept the results in good faith, adding that Ghana must be ruled by people with integrity and honesty to restore her image both at home and international.
The Gyantuahene asked the youth of political parties not allow themselves to be induced with money to create violence during and after the elections.
On the Celebration of the yam festival, Gomoaba Kofi said it was the period to feed the black stool and asked for good health, long life and richness in the years ahead.
He expressed regret that some misunderstanding nearly marred the festival but for the timely intervention of the Police Patrol team from Winneba, who came in to restore law and order.
He cautioned the youth not to take the law into their hands, adding that every citizen must be law abiding to ensure peace and stability.
The Gyantuahene called for co-operation and mutual understanding among residents of Pomadze and unite as one people and one family to help build the town to make it a better place to live.
