An elder Statesman and Founder and Leader of the Cross of Salvation, Apostle Samuel Kobina Arthur has cautioned people aspiring to hold political positions to be mindful of their speeches so as not to create unnecessary tribal sentiments in the country.

Apostle Samuel Arthur, whose caution word follows claim and counter claim by both the NDC and NPP that each other is a worse culprit of the use of foul language to  incite the public stressed that the declaration by some politicians like “all die be die”, “yen akan foo”, “Ghana will turn like Somalia,” “Jihad” “you don’t have to have a license to obtain a pestle to defend yourself” and so are utterances that have the tendencies to create a chaos in the country.

According to Apostle Arthur, the President should come out and condemned all such utterances and let every culprit face the full rigors of the law.

The elder statesman however praised the era of the CPP where he said the then President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah will come out and make a national declaration on any such utterances and let the culprit face the rigours of the law.

But commenting on the Assin North MP Kennedy Ohene Agyapong’s alleged utterance which the state security deemed as inciting Ashanti’s against Ewes and Gas, though Apostle Arthur condemned the MPs utterances in no uncertain terms, he however stated that the way the issue is being handled seemed politically motivated.

He expressed shock at the way and manner some groups do rush and send the matter to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague whiles the case is still pending in a Ghanaian court.
