One local pastor is expressing concerns over what he described as ‘gutter politics’ and the use of it as campaign for a general election heats up.
“I am calling on all political parties to refrain from gutter politics,” Rev. Griffin Daniel said.
He said he is very concerned about what is being said on the platform, radio and television and pointed out that nation building should be the main focus.
“We must remember we have a nation to build not forgetting people around the world are listening to what is being said,” he stated.
He is hence calling on all political parties “to be careful of their choice of words.”
The pastor also had words of advice for journalists, pointing out they have to be careful of what is being said in the media.
“I would also advise that our journalists be careful as to what is being said on radio and television at all times,” he stated.
He noted that a great person once said there are four things that cannot come back and they are “the spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life and the neglected opportunity.”
“As a spiritual leader I am calling on all concerned politicians and others to be extremely careful as to what you say during the time of campaigning,” Daniel remarked. .
