Prof Nabilla told a National House of Chiefs gathering that declaring support for any political party will cost them their respect.
Chiefs are not supposed to get involved in partisan politics accordance with the 1992 constitution he said.
"Nananom are fathers and mothers of the people who belong to different political parties and they see us as such, and therefore when you declare your support for one candidate or party other than the party or candidate, the subjects support, you will no more be seen as a father or mother but as an opponent and that could reduce the respect your people have for us", Professor Nabila stressed.
Speaking at a meeting of the National House of Chiefs in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, Professor Nabila made an appeal to all Ghanaians to make sure that there is absolute peace in the country before, during and after the general elections.
"There is the need to engage the National House of Chiefs because they are development partners and have broad National influence and appeal."
Bani met with the National House of Chiefs to discuss the security situations in the country ahead of the elections. The minister was accompanied by the IGP, the Director General of the Ghana Prisons service and other heads of security agencies.
Some of the chiefs that attended the meeting were the Chief of Asogli, Togbe Afedi xiv, Osu Mantse, Nii Dowunu the Okyehene, Nana Amoatia Ofori-panin, Paramount chief of Bawku, Naba Asigiri Abugrago Azoka II.
