President of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has urged Ghanaian entertainers not to allow division to set into the creative industry.

In a tweet, Mr. Mahama entreated celebrities to avoid the use of abusive and highly critical language. According to him, there is already enough division and use of such words in Ghana’s politics and extending it to the creative arts will not help the country.

“The division in our politics is bad enough. Let it not spread to our creative industry. Let’s cease the polemics. ---JM”, he pleaded.

The advent of multi-party democracy from 1992, has brought with it the opportunity for people to express views on whatever is happening in the country. Unfortunately, instead of socio-political commentators, analysts and party activists raising and debating vital issues of national concern, a chunk of them rather choose to fabricate stories and rain insults on fellow debaters. Most often than not, a government official, in a response to an accusation of poor performance, chooses the option of trading insults on his accusers.
