VIDEO: Don’t Play With Fire; Ghanaians Are Not Gentle – Archbishop Duncan-Williams Warns Politicians

The Founder and General Overseer of Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has urged all parties and stakeholders involved in Ghana’s political process to guarantee a peaceful election in 2024.

He stressed that maintaining peace is essential to preventing violence before, during, and after the elections, in order to avoid a scenario where Ghanaians might be forced to seek refuge in other countries.

Archbishop Duncan-Williams made this appeal during a meeting with the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, and members of the Christian Ecumenical Council in Accra on Monday, May 20.

He added that the general public’s suffering in this nation has reached a point where professionals find it unappealing.

“There is too much pain and suffering in this country. All our doctors and nurses are leaving this country. And we just pray that things will be well handled and managed with transparency and fairness so that we will not end up being refugees in any other country.

The Action Chapel International founder also warned the political class to do right by the citizenry because matters could spiral out of control with continued exploitation.

He added that there is the benefit of history to guide the current leaders and show them that the populace can rise up as was the case in the last two coups Ghana witnessed.

He cited Bawku and other war-torn areas to support his argument that efforts should be made to ensure fairness so that it does not turn into something the nation cannot control. This was in response to the misconception that Ghanaians are peaceful and cannot disturb the peace the country is enjoying.

“May I say this that nobody should think that the Ghanaian is very gentle and doesn’t like trouble. It’s not true, because I saw what happened in 79 and 81 (during the Rawlings coups).

“There were Ghanaians and some of the violence and murders and unrest in a certain part of this country like what’s going on in Bawku and other places, they are all Ghanaians, and if we don’t manage things well and we have this mentality and thinking that any party can do whatever they want to do and the Ghanaian will accept it, and the Ghanaian will live for it, you might be playing with fire, make no mistake,” he cautioned.
