The end result, he added, is that the well-being of the citizenry hangs in the balance.

He also stated that the "the winner takes all" approach gives the government the opportunity to implement all of its policies.

On the issue of vigilantism, he advised that the government, the various political parties, the security agencies as well as all Ghanaians should come together to deal with the issue before it becomes uncontrollable.

He stated that the recent attacks on state bodies and people by some young persons who sought to associate themselves with the ruling party was not the best.

In conclusion, he said that all political parties should be committed to a peace pledge, so that they would be held accountable should they digress from the tenets of their pledge.
