The Deputy Central Regional Minister, Mr Thomas Yaw Adjei Baffoe, has admonished political party supporters not to insult political opponents since it does not help to grow the country’s democratic governance.

He said politicians should understand that it is a contest of ideas to promote socio-economic advancement of Ghanaians.

The Minister said it was regrettable that some politicians take undue advantage to malign and insult their opponents on radio, social media and on TV talk shows, which should not happen in Ghana’s current political discourse.

Mr Adjei Baffoe made this known when he addressed a durbar of Chiefs and people of the Agona Nsaba Traditional Area to climax their Annual Akwambo festival at Nsaba, in the Agona East district.

He called on political party supporters to refrain from using platforms as a means to malign and personally attack people of the political divide, which does not augur well for political cohesion and maturity.

The Deputy Minister said it’s about time political leaders ensured that their supporters do not insult their opponents, and rather focus on socio economic development issues.

He said less than two years of President Akufo-Addo government, it has initiated some of its electioneering campaign promises, such as the free Senior High School, restoration of teachers and nurses allowances, planting for food and jobs, one district one factory, one village one dam, the paperless port regime and the reduction of water and electricity tariffs.

Mr Thomas Yaw Adjei Baffoe said the people of Agona East would not hesitate to vote massively for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) again for a second term, as a result of its transparent governance.

He said that people of Ghana have kept faith with government under President Akufo-Addo, with the hope that Ghana would become a better place to live.
