The National Cadet Corps, Ghana in partnership with the National Peace Council has successfully organized the First Community Youth Peace Durbar in the Volta regional capital, Ho.
The durbar dubbed “One People, One Nation” was aimed at sensitizing the youth on peace building before during and after the 2020 general elections.
The event which was sanctioned under strict COVID -19 protocols, brought together about one hundred youth groups across the region from opinion leaders and stakeholders to religious heads.
In a message to the youth, the Chairman of the Christian Council, Rev. Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo advised the Electoral commission to work as their motto states “integrity, fairness and transparency”.
The National Chief Imam, Dr. Sheik Osman Nuhu Sharubutu admonished the youth to be spiritual and stay away from any form of violence and anti social vices.
The Volta Regional Peace Council Chairman, Rev. Seth K. Mawutor in his address encouraged the youth to be law abiding and not to allow themselves to used as tools to cause mayhem before, during and after the upcoming polls in December.
The durbar which is the first of its kind in the region will be replicated in the remaining fifteen regions of Ghana.
The team is off to the Oti region for the second edition on 13 October 2020.
