“AGENT OF PEACE” CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED
The Kwahu West Municipal Assembly, in collaboration with the Church of Pentecost Nkawkaw Chapter and the Eastern Regional Police Command, has launched the “Agent of Peace” campaign.
The campaign is geared towards ensuring that all stakeholders, particularly political parties and their supporters, as well as the general public put up behaviour that will keep the peace of the municipality intact, during, and after the upcoming elections.
The Municipal Chief Executive for Kwahu West Municipal, Hon. Yaw Owusu Addo, noted that some politicians only pursue their selfish interests during election periods, thereby employing the services of some unsuspecting youth who then become conduits of violence.
He entreated all and sundry to boldly reject and frown at such unpatriotic politicians to safeguard the peace of the country.
Speaking at the event, Prophet Robert Kobena Dentu admonished the participants to always seek peace and pursue it. He implored Ghanaians to shun evil and always love doing good.
He called on the citizenry to abstain from acts of wickedness as the December 7 elections approach, since such acts can plunge Ghana into chaos. “We must refrain from words that provoke, avoid mischievous meetings and orchestrations that seek to create confusion and manipulations during the elections,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of the Municipal Imam, Alhaji Somaila Amed reechoed the need for religious tolerance and peaceful co-existence among the religious bodies since all religions are founded on peace, love, and equal rights. He was so grateful to The Church of Pentecost for involving the Muslim Community in all her flagship initiatives.
Present at the event were the clergy, the NCCE, Electoral Commission, political party representatives, among others.
