Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur has urged leadership of the Zongo communities to remind the youth on the need to ensure peaceful elections on December 7.
He said very often, politicians go to Zongo communities to recruit youth there to cause trouble during elections, threatening the peace of the nation.
Mr Amissah-Arthur, therefore, urged the chiefs and imams of the various Zongo communities to help advise the youth to resist any attempt to be used by a politician during the elections.
The vice president said this when he paid a courtesy call on the chiefs, imams and elders of the Swedru Zongo community in the Agona West constituency, as part of his four-day tour of the Central Region.
Swedro Zongo chief Alhaji Bashiru Umar commended government for the numerous developmental projects in the area.
He wished President John Dramani Mahama luck in the December polls
