Chief of Defence Staff Air Marshal Michael Samson-Oje has warned that the Ghana Armed Forces will deal ruthlessly with persons who foment trouble in the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections.

According to him, the security agencies across the country “shall preserve the peace of the country at all cost.”

Speaking with a joint security task force ahead of the December 7 polls in Accra over the weekend, Air Marshal Samson-Oje said: “Let me take a minute to address those who may be inclined to resort to violence in furtherance to their course during the elections with the aim of throwing the country into chaos. The resolve of the Ghana Armed Forces and other sister security agencies to deal with spoilers to ensure peace and security during the elections are not be underestimated.

“Let any potential spoiler be warned that the Armed Forces, the Police, the Fire Service, Prisons, Customs, Excise and Preventive Service and Immigration are alert and ready to foil any such attempt to disrupt the peace.

“We shall preserve the peace at all cost. We are, therefore, ready to deal ruthlessly with anyone who seeks to disturb the peace.”
