Govt urged to support peace process in Nkonya, Alavanyo

Youth for Peace and Security-Africa, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), has appealed to the Government to restore the peace process initiated to enable the people of Nkonya and Alavanyo to dialogue.

Mr Abraham Klutsey, the Executive Director of the NGO, in a statement to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, on Tuesday, said the suspension of the peace process last year had automatically affected the roles being played by the two traditional councils as well as the youth in both communities.

He pleaded with the Government to provide the people of the two towns with the needed security to avert loss of lives.

He said the situation had hugely affected the quality of education the children received as well as health services.

There is the proliferation of small arms as well as the diversion of developmental funds into peace keeping operations.

Mr Klutsey said the situation called for an innovative and proactive campaign, which would create an enabling environment for the engagement with the people active in peacekeeping and prevention of crimes.
