Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Unity Group of Companies, Dr Kwame Kyei, has launched a peace campaign towards election 2016 in Accra recently.
The peace campaign, under the auspices of Unity Group of Companies and its facilitators, is to promote peace and ensure stability during election 2016.
Nana Oto Darko, a presenter at Light TV in Accra, in his opening remarks at the event, disclosed the core objective of the project, highlighting that the campaign is geared towards “becoming a voice that promotes peace, shared values and rule of law, human right, social and economic standards and to stop ambush politics in Ghana.”
General Manager of Unity Oil, Alfred Arthur Frimpong, reading a speech on behalf of Dr Kyei, pointed out that “Ghana is said to often lead other African nations for her most powerful and open democracies in West Africa and across the continent.”
He continued…“The Republic of Ghana had till now experienced decade of relatively stable political progress. The 1992 Constitution, approved by referendum, establishes the multi-party system of Ghana’s democracy.”
Nana Odupon Okomfo Abeka Sikafo II, president of the Ga Chief Priests Association, also expressed his appreciation to Dr Kyei for using the campaign as a platform to tour the I0 regions in order to maintain peace rather than to fight “against the harmony we have enjoyed for years.”
