Issue #20 • View online
Dear GhanaWeb reader,
With 112 days to the December 7 general elections in Ghana, the atmosphere is already tensed with lots of political banter and activities by the two major political parties and their supporters.
The subtle campaigns which started off with the assessment of either party’s performance has slowly turned dirty as allegations of sexual misconduct are being bandied around to taint the image of both parties.
There is not yet a call for ceasefire by esteemed bodies such as the clergy, Council of State nor council of elders of both parties to stop the negative campaigns which would not position the country in a positive light. The dirty politicking will also affect Ghanaian children in the long run who are learning from our actions.
Meanwhile, caution has been thrown to the wind with respect to social engagements as Ghanaians have widely stopped wearing their nose masks despite the rising number of coronavirus cases.
Don’t forget to take all the necessary precautionary measures to stay safe and alive.
  1. Always wear a nose mask
  2. Avoid crowded places
  3. Keep a distance between yourself and other people
  4. Always wash your hands with soap under running water
  5. Use alcohol-based hand-sanitizers in the absence of water
  6. Stay at home when there is no need to be outside
The Third Wave of the Ghana Election Poll has been launched as we prepare to release results of the Second Wave of the poll. Click here to take part in the Third Wave of the Ghana Election Poll.
