Gospel Musician Joe Mettle has advised the youth to refrain from violent activities before, during and after the 2020 General Elections.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM he explained that citizens will have nowhere to call home if Ghana is destroyed because of an individual’s political ambition.
“Please hold the peace. Don’t do anybody’s dirty work for them. Don’t allow anybody to push you into doing something that they will not do,” he stated.
His comment comes after some members of two political parties the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) clashed on Sunday, October 25.
In a number of video clips widely shared on social media platforms, the supporters of the two main parties were seen throwing bottles as well as hurling stones and insults at each other.
Joe Mettle told Andy Dosty, host of the show, that he was surprised to see young people go after each other like they did.
“Aren’t we seeing what is happening around us (in Nigeria) and we are also following suit?”
The violence, he explained, starts small and escalates, therefore “we shouldn’t ignore some of them. Ghana is ours, if we destroy it we will have nowhere else to go.”
The ‘Bo Noo Ni’ hitmaker believes it is imperative that citizens report anyone they know has plans to disrupt the peace in the country.
Joe Mettle, urged young men and women to help Ghana sustain the peace it has enjoyed throughout its elections.
The Gospel artiste also revealed he will be hosting a 7-hour prayer and worship service for the elections.
‘Sing Over Ghana’ he revealed will take place on November 7 at the ICGC Adjiringanor Open Heavens Church from 9 am to 4 pm.
Joe Mettle added that people can join the show at any time they want and stay as long as they can.
