Esther Nana Araba Assabil, the Coordinator of Corporate Matters, explained to the Ghana News Agency in an interview that the concert is a call to Ghanaians to understand to ensure violence free elections.

“We mean we want nothing to hear about the pulling of ballot boxes, the beating of people, the vandalisation of individuals and properties as well as the bloodshed that characterises the election process that is what we are pleading for.”

She noted that on September 30, 2016 Corporate Matters would hold another concert to educate people on how to vote, where to vote and “what to do when you get to the voting grounds”

Pupils from various schools in the country sang, performed cultural dances and poetry recitals to indicate the need for peace during the elections.

They said peace brings the cooling of ears; political parties should develop their peace not desert and kill it.

“We acknowledge that our parents and leaders are doing this but the children get affected the most.

“What are we teaching to our future generations? Are we telling them to speak disrespectfully and spitefully to each other as they grow up to be leaders of the state?”

Mrs Dzifa Gomashie, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts urged the children to be vigilant and peaceful at all times.

She said anything that does not look well on their part should be reported to their parents and teachers for immediate action to be taken
