The Member of Parliament (MP) for Okere and parliamentary candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the general elections, Dan Botwe and the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Akuapem North, George Opare-Addo, who is also the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s parliamentary candidate for Okere have together assured that they would carry out clean electioneering campaigns that would not affect peace in the constituency.

The two political heavy weights made the pledge at a grand durbar to climax this year’s Odwira festival of the chiefs and people of Adukrom-Akuapem in the Akuapem North district over the weekend.

The MP, Dan Botwe requested highly placed chiefs to continually entreat all politicians to conduct clean campaigns and adhere to electoral rules to ensure a successful election.

DCE Opare-Addo on his part also pledged his campaign team’s commitment to avoid any act that would disturb the peace of Okere.

The two politicians were commended by the gathering for their assuring words.

Earlier on, the chief of Adukrom, Osuodumgya Otutu Kono III urged politicians to desist from insults and personal attacks on their opponents and rather campaign on issues.

He noted that Ghana is a peaceful country and nothing must be done to destroy the peace that the country is currently enjoying.
