The Ghana Armed Forces have assured Ghanaians that the country will remain peaceful before, during and after the November general elections.

The Chief of Defence Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces, Air Marshall Michael Samson-Oje has pledged the army’s commitment to support the Ghana Police Service to ensure that the country does not burn.

He is confident that the country’s soldiers who are well equipped will crush any untoward situation that might arise during the elections which will be beyond the capacity of the police service.

“I can assure you it [election] will not descend into any chaos,” Samson-Oje assured the top hierarchy of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) when he paid a courtesy call on them.

The CDS urged the media to be guarded in their reportage and conduct their duties professionally without any biases.

“I believe sincerely that if the media plays its role effectively, efficiently devoid of any political lineage there’ll be peace in this country,” Samson-Oje advised the GJA leadership.

The GJA led by its President Affail Monney cautioned the media to desist from actions that will plunge the nation into anarchy during the November elections.
