Mr Osei Sekyere Bota, Tano North District Chief Executive has urged teachers to vote for selfless and patriotic Presidential and Parliamentary Candidates who had the welfare of Ghanaians at heart.
He asked them to be politically tolerant in sharing views to maintain the prevailing peace and harmony needed for national development.
Mr Bota gave the advice when opening an inter-district football games organised by Tano South District Branch of Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) at Bechem.
It formed part of activities by the association to help promote peace before, during and after Election 2008.
Mr Asante Nketiah, Brong Ahafo Regional Secretary of GNAT, cautioned teachers to be wary of politicians who would inflame passions and create confusion and violence.
He said politics was a game of unity but not conflicts, and advised the teachers not to allow themselves to be misused by politicians.
Mr Kwadwo Mensah, Tano South District Director of National Commission for Civic Education, called on teachers to exhibit good leadership skills for their pupils and students to emulate.
"Teachers are seen as role models in society and it is your duty to exhibit good morals worthy of emulation," he said.
