He said politics was a contest of ideas and ideologies geared towards the development of the nation.

He urged political actors to carry out their campaign devoid of insults and work to address issues that had the potential of dividing or causing disunity among the people.

Mr Yaagi said this during an inter-parliamentary debate organised at Issa to engage the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary and National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary aspirants of the Daffiama/Bussie/Issa constituency.

The event was also to enable the electorate to demand accountability from the candidate who would be voted into power.

Mr Yaagi appealed to the candidates to make their campaigns issue-based ones for the electorate to have a clear choice.

Mr Lwanga Bagonluri, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) aspirant, appealed to the NPP sympathisers to avoid engaging in any act of violence which could mar the peace in the society.

He also appealed to the electorate to give him and the NPP flag bearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo the opportunity to lead Ghana to the “Promised Land” through improved infrastructural, educational, economic and human development.

Dr Sebastian Sandaare, National Democratic Congress (NDC) aspirant for the area, said peace is a major determiner of development in the country.

He urged the electorate to vote for him to represent them in parliament as well as to retain the President John Dramani Mahama in power to continue with his development agenda.

Youth groups, Persons with Disabilities (PWDs), party supporters, women groups as well as the general public attended the forum, which was organised by the Daffiama-Bussie-Issa District Office of the NCCE with sponsorship from the European Union.
