Mrs Joyce Bawa Mogtari, Deputy Minister of Transport, has called on Ghanaians to desist from activities that could threaten the peace and stability of the country.

      She said for a country to be developed there was the need for the citizenry to love one another and be tolerant of each others’ views at all times.

      Mrs Mogtari made the call at this year’s Ghana Day celebration of the Cedar Mountain Chapel International in Accra.

      The celebration, on the theme: “Peace and Security” was to promote made-in -Ghana goods, renew the sense of patriotism of members, and pray for a peaceful general election.

      Mrs Mogtari said government would do everything possible to ensure free, fair and peaceful elections.

      She paid glowing tribute to the founding fathers for their fight for the independence of Ghana.

      Reverend Dr Stephen Wengam, Lead Pastor of Cedar Mountain Chapel International, commended past leaders of the country whose efforts had contributed to the sustenance of peace.

      He urged Ghanaians to love one another and contribute towards national development.

      Rev. Dr Wengam, also the Chairman of the Prisons Service Council, said marijuana should not be legalized as it would rather put a burden on the Government and the Council.

      Miniature Ghana flags were distributed to the members of the church to remind them of the need to be patriotic.

      Mrs Mogtari was honoured as a Cutting-edge Emerging Leader of the 21st Century.
