National Association of Charismatic and Christian Churches (NACCC) has launched a peace initiative to encourage all Christians to play an active role in helping to ensure a peaceful election.
The initiative dubbed “Peace Run” would commence on May 1 with a walk through the principal streets of Accra starting from the Tetteh Quarshie interchange to the Independence Square and aims at arriving at appropriate strategies on how Christians all over the country could play meaningful roles in safeguarding the country’s security and stability.
Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, Chairman of NACCC, said it was the duty and responsibility of every Christian leader that there was a prevailing peaceful environment in order to continue God’s work.
He said the devil was at work looking for people and strategizing to destroy the peace the country have been enjoying since its creation.
“We should not deceive ourselves that Ghana is a peaceful country so nothing can happen during this election. We must be agents of peace and pray to prevent possible dangers that may occur before, during and after election”, he said.
He advised politicians to be mindful of their promises and utterances made to the electorate and appealed that honesty, sincerity and integrity would guide all their intentions and visions for the country.
He urged all eligible voters to turn up massively for the biometric registration exercise scheduled to begin on March 24.
“We can only enjoy eternal peace, if our attitude, language and actions reflect our true Christian nature and avoid associating with bad influences,” Archbishop Williams said.**
