The Paramount Chief of Edina Traditional Area, Nana Kwadwo Conduah has envisaged that this year’s presidential and parliamentary elections will have spiritual connotations as politicians are determined to use all means available including charms to get power.
In view of this, he has tasked Ghanaians to fast and pray
before they will cast their votes to avoid any political charm of change of
mind at the eleventh hour.
Nana Condua called on the public especially the clergy,
herbalists, and spiritualists to use their positions to fight for a violent-free
and peaceful general elections, observing that the nation is beyond politics of
insults and violence.
To this end, he appealed to political parties to conduct
decent campaigns during and after the presidential and parliamentary elections
devoid of personal attacks and insults
The Omanhene made this revelation during the official launch
of Edina Bakatue 2020 Homecoming organized by the Edina Traditional Council in
partnership with brand Elmina.
He warned people of Elmina not to allow themselves to be
manipulated by politicians as the year happens to be one of the busiest for the
country in view of the rigorous campaigns.
Nana Condua noted that due to financial constraints hindering the celebration of the Bakatue festival, which is slated for 8th June to 12th July this year, his traditional council will soon hit the streets to collect levies from residents of Elmina especially traders.
On his part, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Brand
Elmina, Mr. Kofi Owusu called on the general public including Diasporians to
come in their numbers to make the Bakatue festival unique and attractive as it
used to be.
