Accra, May 15, GNA – The Most Reverend Charles Palmer-Buckle, Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, has appealed to Ghanaians to pray for peace and mercy towards the December election.

The theme: for the ceremony was “Nurses and Midwives: caring and advocating for peaceful 2012 National elections”.

He also called on the Electoral Commission, the National Commission for Civic Education, the Ghana Police Service and other security agencies to work hard to ensure peace during and after the election.

“l also call  on the media and myfellow Ghanaians who delight in pontificating on the airwaves to desist from advertising only evil and the negative, from raking up exaggerated partisan and inter-ethnic animosity, and repeating past unethical utterances to the point of propagating them inadvertently,” he said.
