Chiefs in the Central and South Tongu constituencies in the Volta region have warned politicians who intend to do tribal politics in the region to desist from it.
According to the chiefs any politician who is found playing the tribal card during or ahead of the November polls wouldn’t be tolerated.
“We the chiefs would like to unequivocally and unreservedly state that the 2016 parliamentary and presidential elections should be devoid of tribalism and actions by dishonest politicians geared towards luring people to vote for them,” Togbe Atatim IV said when the NPP flagbearer paid a call on him.

He further mentioned that the chiefs have come to the realisation that in any civilised and matured society where democratic institutions and principles are respected, hardcore tribalistic tendencies and structures are frowned upon.
The NPP have been tagged an anti-Volta political party and this has affected the political fortunes of the main opposition party over the years.
