By Caroline Pomeyie, GNA

Accra, Sept. 7, GNA – Abraham Attah, Hollywood
based Ghanaian actor known for his role in the Netflix film, ‘Beasts of No
Nation’, has reached an agreement with AfriGold Impact to embark on a peace
campaign for the December polls.

He said “I will be in US during the election,
however, it is important that Ghana remains peaceful before, during and after
election. This is my home and my family is here so I support the cause of
Afri-Gold Impact in its peace campaign.”

The Abraham Attah Foundation and AfriGold
Impact campaign tour dubbed: “Ghana Peace Drive”, is to educate the public on
the essence of maintaining peace in this political season.

The project will begin in October and will end
after the December elections.

A statement delivered by Mawuko Kuadzi, the
manager of Abraham Attah after the signing of the Memorandum of Understand
said, “Even though I will not be here in person, my input will be seen in
different ways and this project will contribute greatly in ensuring peace”.

He said the team would tour to various
communities to show an infotainment documentary and called on the media and
general public to support the effort.

Mr Francis Botchwey, Director AfriGold Impact,
said the documentary brings together messages from Emmanuel Bombande (Executive
Director of the West African Network for Peace Building), Kofi Asante (Chairman
of the National Peace Council), Fred Dogbe (Former Secretary of Christian
Council), Bright Kweku Appiah (Executive Director of Child Right
International), Sheikh Dr Nuhu Shaributu (National Chief Imam), and Ransford
Tetteh (Former President of Ghana Journalists Association) advising the public
against violence.

He said over ten thousand T-shirts with peace
inscriptions will also be distributed for free as part of the campaign which is
aimed at sensitising the public against violence and encouraging peaceful
co-existence.

Mr Botchwey said “not every Ghanaian has
access to information and not all Ghanaians are literate. We want to reach out
to the deprived communities and make them understand the importance of peace”.
