Aflao Area Launches ‘Agents Of Peace’ Campaign

The Aflao Area of The Church of Pentecost, in collaboration with the Ketu South Municipal Assembly, the security agencies, the Local Council of Churches, and the traditional authorities, have launched the ‘Agent of Peace’ campaign in the Ketu South municipality.

The programme drew a lot of people to the Shekinah Temple in the Aflao District of the church, where the event was held. The Ketu South Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon. Elliot Edem Agbenowu, was the guest of honour. It was graced by the Divisional Police Commander, the CEPS Commander, the Ketu South NCCE head and other personnel from the municipality.

The Area Head, Apostle Kofi Dzemekey, who chaired the occasion, in an address gave a brief insight into the main theme of the campaign, “Seek Peace and Pursue It” taken from Psalm 34:14.

He also stated the commitment of The Church of Pentecost towards the peace of the nation, especially in this year’s elections. He encouraged the citizenry to do all that they can to protect the peace they are enjoying in the country since Ghana is the only nation they have.

The MCE of Ketu South, Hon. Elliot Edem Agbenowu, pledged the commitment of the Municipal Security Council (MUSEC) to ensure a peaceful election. He encouraged residents to adjust to the new security protocols being implemented by the security agencies in the municipality. This, he explained, was because the constituency has been identified as a hot spot for the 2020 elections, coupled with the activities of the Western Togoland group. He assured residents of his commitment to protect the peace and security of the municipality.

The head of NCCE in the municipality, Mrs Evelyn Klopkodzi, who is also a deaconess of the church, used the opportunity to educate the gathering on peace and how to ensure that everyone becomes an agent of peace during and after the 2020 general elections.

The NPP parliamentary candidate for the Ketu South constituency, David Tiano Quarshie, an elder of the church, spoke on behalf of all the political parties and pledged their commitment of ensuring a peaceful election.

The Divisional Police Commander, Superintendent S. O. Bempah, and the CEPS commander both pledged the commitment of the security agencies towards ensuring peace and security, before, during and after the 2020 general elections.

Other speakers included the representative of the Municipal Chief Imam, the chairman of the United Churches of Aflao and the representative of the Paramount Chief of Aflao Traditional Area.

Prayers were offered for the Electoral Commission, the Municipality, the Region and Ghana as a whole.

There was a peace walk in some principal streets of Aflao with members holding placards bearing various peace messages.
