Chief of Staff Julius Debrah has advised the youth not to risk their lives for politicians.
Speaking to young people at a peace walk organised in the Upper West regional capital, Wa, on Saturday 24 September, Mr Debrah asked: “If your candidate becomes president, are you sure you can move from Wa and go and say that sir: ‘I’m the one that they used stones to hit my head; I’m the one that they punched my eye, so, the food that your wife prepared, let me eat some.’ Can you do that?”
The walk, organised by NASSOBA in collaboration with the National Road Commission and the National Youth Authority saw five political parties including the NDC, NPP and PNC participating.
It was used to foster unity ahead of the December 7 polls.
Mr Debrah told the youth that: "President John Dramani Mahama has stated on countless occasions his commitment towards protecting the peace and unity of Ghana. I am here to also amplify that government is desirous of safeguarding the country's peace beyond the 2016 elections.”
