The National Association of Local Authorities of Ghana (NALAG) is calling on the youth to uphold the good name of Ghana by eschewing all forms of electoral violence before, during and after the elections.

According to the Association, the peace of the nation must be of paramountcy to the youth because a youthful nation without peace is a youthful nation without development.

In a statement signed by the General Secretary of NALAG, Kokro Amankwah, the association equally encourages its members made up Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies – MMDAs, to be ambassadors and advocates of peace in their areas of operations.

The statement adds that the peace of the nation is a reflection of the peace in the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs).

It is therefore incumbent on everyone within the local authorities particularly, MMDCEs and Assembly Members to be effective and accountable to the citizens, which forms part of the ultimate tenets of peace and stability.

It further called on all members of NALAG and Ghanaians who qualify to vote to go out in their numbers to cast their votes to choose the right leaders for the country.

The statement also congratulates the Electoral Commission for its action and activities so far, and urges it to further intensify its efforts, particularly in relation to communication by continuously engaging the various political parties through constant dialogue to reduce the tension that may arise from speculations.

The statement concludes by calling on the National Peace Council to initiate the signing of a collective peace accord by all political parties, which must publicly affirm and reaffirm their commitment to a fair process devoid of any vigilantism.

They should equally affirm their commitment to abiding by the verdict of the polls.
