Don't toy with current peace - Daasebre Oti Boateng urges
The Omanhene of New Juaben Traditional Area,
Daasebre Professor (Emeritus) Oti Boateng, has
called on all Ghanaians to ensure that peace
prevails in the country.
He said peace was a non-negotiable basic
requirement for any country’s development and
must, therefore, not be toyed with or taken for
Daasebre Oti Boateng made these remarks at a
thanksgiving service at the Koforidua Wesley
Cathedral following his return from a United
Nations assignment in war-torn Afghanistan.
The Omanhene told the congregation that what he
saw in Afghanistan was an eye-opener, noting that
the Asian country was presently devastated as a
result of decades of incessant warfare and warned
Ghanaians not to do anything that would plunge the
country into chaos.
Daasebre Oti Boateng, who is also the President of
the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs, took the
opportunity to caution all New Juaben citizens and
residents to refrain from cheating in the ongoing
national biometric voters registration exercise,
which is the basis for conducting both the
presidential and parliamentary elections in the
country next year.
He emphasised that cheating, such as double
registration, was a criminal offence and was bound
to be detected by the computer system “since God
has given a unique and different fingerprint to
every person living under the sun which helps us
to prevent such cheating”.
The Omanhene presented a thanksgiving donation of
GH¢500.00 to the church in addition to five
computers worth GH¢2,500.00, in fulfillment of an
earlier pledge he made to the Presiding Bishop of
the Methodist Church of Ghana, the Most Rev.
The Right Rev. Frederic Nnuroh, Bishop of the
Methodist Church, Koforidua, while thanking the
Omanhene for his donation to the church, also
associated himself with the sentiments expressed
He called on Ghanaians to remain upright in these
turbulent times and get closer to God in order to
maintain the unity of the nation.
