Let peace prevail - MUSIGA

BY: Enoch Darfah Frimpong

Members of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) have called on the various political parties to heed to their peace pledges to Ghanaians.

According to MUSIGA, tampering with the hard earned peace that the country had enjoyed over the years would not augur well for national development.

They also urged politicians and political parties to let the long standing bond of friendship between them unite the country with a common commitment of peace.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra, the President of the Union, Mr Bice Osei Kuffour, said there was the need for Ghanaians to develop love for each other no matter the political persuasion.

“Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that because it is the only tool capable of transforming an enemy into a friend,” he said.

Mr Kuffour , cautioned that when the country fails to manage the current situation, national lives would severely suffer from the consequences.

He recalled that in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, political instability which brought about curfews in the country, killed live band music leading to its near collapse  in the music industry in the country.

“Now we are beginning to witness some improvement in live music again hence we appeal for peace to prevail.” he added.
