The District Pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Goaso, Ahafo Region, has urged the media to speak out against politicians who foment violence during election campaigns.

Rev Paul Oduro Sarfo feels that violence has no place in our political process and that the media must find a way to report on what politicians say without inciting violence or promoting divisiveness.

The cleric stated that without the media, politicians might say whatever they wanted without the public’s knowing.

“I plead with reporters that if they invite any politician to the studio or speak to them through a phone call and they say anything that will not lead to a peaceful election, please know how to report it,” he said.

He made the call as the Presbyterian Church was praying for the country.

Rev. Oduro Sarfo told Adom News that the outcome of the elections will determine the country’s fate.

“If there is peace in the country, everything goes on well,” he said.

He urged the media not to give a forum to politicians who make outrageous assertions, since this might encourage violence and impede the country’s growth.
