DSP Yaw Dankwa Agyekum, the Akwatia District Police Chief, has cautioned that they are able to deal with any recalcitrant individuals who plan to create havoc in the Eastern Region’s Akwatia Constituency polls on 7 December.
On the sidelines of a peace walk coordinated by the Pentecostal Council of Churches of Ghana, he spoke.
I am not God, but for way too long, the poor word of Akwatia being a flash point has been used to mask Akwatia’s good deeds. “We’re going to delete it from Akwatia,” said DSP Dankwa Agyekum.
He said that they will deal with anybody who wants to comply with the rules.
God is the law, we have the law. Whoever fulfills the rule would have prosperity. Anyone who is not able to abide by the rules would be dealt with.
“He promised that the law and the court system would be used to” deter those who feel that the laws will be broken.
“For Akwatia, we’ll do the right thing. If you commit any offence, I will not spare you during my presidency, and no politician or chief will sway my opinion.
The two-hour peace walk was supported by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Christians, Muslims and their electoral backers.
Aspirants for the two key political parties vowed their contribution to the election for unity.
Ernest Kumi of the NPP called on young people not to channel their youthful exuberance into fruitless political practices.
For his part, the NDC aspirant, Henry Boakye Yiadom, wants both parties to hold peace talks.
Mercy Gyamfi, outgoing Member of Parliament for the Akwatia Constituency, urged the constituents to preserve the unity witnessed in the elections of 2016.
In previous votes, the Akwatia Constituency has become a flashpoint.
The President of the Ghanaian Pentecostal Council of Churches in Akwatia, Rev. Samuel Edzii Davidson, who led the peace walk, was confident that the commitment to peace would be fulfilled.
Osabarima Kofi Boateng, President of Akwatia, and Denkyembour District Chief Executive (DCE), Seth Brinkorang Ofosu, pointed out that growth would erode the constituency without stability.
