The 2016 general elections will not descend into chaos, the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has guaranteed.

The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) of GAF, Air Marshall Michael Samson-Oje, gave the assurance when he paid a courtesy call on the executives of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA).

“I can assure you it [the election] will not descend into any chaos,” he told journalists on Tuesday adding that the army shall apply the right antidote to coil disturbances if they arise.

He, however, cautioned the media to play their role without taking sides to help maintain the peace.

“I believe sincerely that if the media plays its role effectively, efficiently, devoid of any political leanings, there will be peace in this country,” Mr Samson-Oje noted.

GJA President Affail Monney reiterated the importance of the role of the media in maintaining peace before, during, and after the elections. He advised the media to avoid reportage that could spark chaos during the polls.

In his quest to maintain the peace, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), John Kudalor, has also tasked his men to disband all vigilante groups associated with political parties.

Ghanaians will later in the year go to the polls to elect a president and Members of Parliament for the next four years.
