The Abraham Attah foundation in partnership with AfriGold impact will embark on a peace campaign dubbed “Ghana Peace Drive- Let Ghana Win in October ahead of the December polls”.
The Hollywood-based young Ghanaian actor known for his role in the Netflix film, ‘Beasts of No Nation’, said though he would be in US during the elections, it is important that Ghana remains peaceful before, during and after the election.
“This is my home and my family is here so I support the cause of Afri-Gold Impact in its peace campaign”.
The campaign which will commence in October and end after the December elections is to educate the public on the essence of maintaining peace in the political season.
According to AfriGold Impact Director Francis Botchwey, the documentary put together statements from Emmanuel Bombande (former Executive Director of the West African Network for Peace building), Rev. Prof Emmanuel Asante (Chairman of the National Peace Council), Fred Dogbe (Former Secretary of the 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) to advice the public against violence.
The team will travel to flash point communities across the country with a video van to show the documentary to public gatherings and also distribute over ten thousand T-shirts with peace inscription on them for free.
According to Mawuko Kuadzi, manager of Abraham Attah, the project is aimed at bringing harmony and providing a peaceful atmosphere for people to co-exist and pursue their dreams and aspiration.
