Torgbuiga Mawufeame Fugah, President of the Voltarians Co-ordinating Council (VCC), in Kumasi, has called on Ghanaians to be law abiding to ensure peaceful elections in December.
He said Ghana had gained international recognition as a peace loving country, and asked the electorate to ensure violent-free polls, for Ghana to maintain the reputation.
Torgbuiga Fugah was speaking at a durbar of people from the Volta Region resident in the Asante Akim South District, at Juaso on Tuesday.
He asked Ghanaians to work hard towards the consolidation of country's fledgling democracy and to re-affirm the country's commitment to peace.
Torgbuiga Fugah appealed to supporters of political parties to tolerate each others views and to carry out their campaigns devoid of insults.
The durbar formed part of preparation towards the celebration of "Amu Za" festival scheduled for November 8, this year in Kumasi.
The festival that is celebrated every two years by people from the Volta Region resident in Ashanti and Brong Ahafo Regions, is aimed at fostering unity among the people from the two regions.
Torgbuiga Fugah said the festival also aimed at showcasing the cultural heritage of the people of the Volta Region.
He urged the people to be each others keeper and abide by the laws of the communities in which they reside.
