The Dunkwa Area of The Church of Pentecost has launched its “Agent of Peace” campaign aimed at educating the public on the importance of peace before, during, and after the 2020 general polls.
The launch, which took place on October 21, 2020, at the Dunkwa Central Assembly Auditorium, dubbed “Seek peace and pursue it,” was chaired by the Dunkwa Area Head, Apostle Jones Awuah Afrifa. It was preceded by a float through the principal streets of Dunkwa-On-Offin.
In his address, Apostle Afrifa said: “The agent of peace campaign is an initiative by The Church of Pentecost to educate and challenge all Ghanaians to be agents of peace before, during, and after this year’s election.”
He defined peace as “freedom from disturbances,” and he charged all Ghanaians to pursue peace and guard it jealously.
“As Christians and citizens of a peaceful nation, we must all work hard to maintain the peace we are enjoying, not only for ourselves but for posterity as well,” he reiterated.
Apostle Afrifa called on all stakeholders and parties involved to pursue peace and set good examples that will be worthy of emulation and ultimately bring about a peaceful election come December 7.
The well-attended occasion was graced by major stakeholders including political party leaders, traditional rulers, security agencies, civil society organisations, and the Muslim community, among others.
The occasion ended with an intercession prayer for the nation and the general elections.
