In his address, the Executive Director of Community Agenda For Peace, Barrister Phillips Obuesi called politicians to regenerate themselves by stopping hate propaganda and preventing incitement to violence.
At a similar forum on violence-free and fair Elections, organized by the United Nations of Youths (UNOY), the National Information Officer enjoined the over 150 youths in attendance to channel their energies to productive ventures rather than being a willing tool of perpetrating political violence.
