Members of the new Governing Board of the National Peace Council, say they are eager to work in earnest to promote the peace, unity and stability of the country.
The Council will therefore facilitate mechanisms for conflict prevention, management and resolution towards sustainable peace among Ghanaians.
Members of the National Peace Council stated this at an orientation workshop in Accra.
The ceremony provided a platform for the new Council members and their international partners like UNDP to honour the former National Peace Council Board members for working to sustain the country’s peace.
The new 13-member Board which was inaugurated by President Akufo-Addo, ahead of last year’s general election, is chaired by Reverend Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi.
In an address, Dr. Adu-Gyamfi said the Peace Council Act imposed an obligation on members to network and cooperate with identifiable partners to prevent, manage, and resolve conflicts in the country.
Dr. Adu-Gyamfi called for public support to deal with pressing issues such as election related violence, political polarization, protracted land and chieftaincy disputes, communal violence, threat of terrorism and secession attempts by some citizens
