He was speaking at a lecture to launch the Political Science Students Association (POSSAG) Week celebration at the University of Ghana.
Dr Gyampoh urged politicians with opposing viewpoints to go beyond being mere friends but be prepared to act in the interest of the nation and not in their selfish interests.
He said this would ensure better tolerance and accommodation, which were crucial for a peaceful and violence-free election.
He explained that accommodating ones opponent went beyond tolerance and that people could tolerate the views of others without interacting.
He reminded Ghanaians that society could hold different opinions but still live peacefully together.
