He said this could be done by avoiding violent behaviours and being each other’s keeper.
Rev. Gle made the call in his goodwill message to the youth during the Church’s Youth Week celebration, which ended on Sunday with a thanksgiving and fundraising service.
The weeklong celebration was on the theme ‘Improving upon our gains: the role of the youth’.
“Politicians will soon start their campaigns to canvass for votes, do not let them use you as tools of destruction to achieve their parochial motives,” he advised.
The Reverend Minister said many times such campaigns were characterised with violence and it was the youth, who were recruited to do the “dirty works.”
He wondered why these politicians did not use their children for such diabolic purposes.
Rev. Gle noted that all that the youth got for doing such dirty works were some few Cedis, bottles of alcoholic drinks, and unfulfilled promises.
He reminded them that they had a bigger role to play in ensuring a peaceful election adding that “posterity will not forgive us if we fail to play that role well.”
Rev. Gle called on them to be at the forefront in educating the populace on the dangers of violence and the need to eradicate it from the Ghanaian society.
Some activities that marked the celebration included talk shows, drama, tree planting, and fasting, and prayer.
