NCCE official says political opponents are potential allies

Baba P. P. Apaabey, Deputy Volta Regional Director of the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) at the weekend reminded politicians that their opponents are potential allies.

“Let us remember that our today’s opponents are not our enemies…, you may need your today’s opponents as your allies tomorrow,” he said.

Baba Apaabey said this at a peace rally in Ho organized by Youth for Peace Ambassadors and Service.

He said politics was about collaboration towards development not a fight to be at the forefront and appealed to politicians to develop the moral strength to love their perceived enemies for peace to prevail in the country.

Mr. Michael Seppey, President of Youth for Peace Ambassadors and Service, expressed worry about the politics of insults and violence which was becoming the order of the day and appealed to young people to stand up for peace and politics devoid of insults.

He said events in neighboring countries as well as in Libya and Syria should be “serious lessons” for the Ghanaians as the nation moves towards general election in December.
