Govt will continue to pursue policies that will promote peace in Ghana & West Africa-Veep
Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has assured Ghanaians that the Nana Addo led administration will continue to pursue programmes and policies that will promote peace and security in Ghana and West Africa in general.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, says with Ghana’s president being the current ECOWAS Chair, the country is helping to exert peace and democracy in the subregion.
Receiving the Young Democrat Union of Africa (YDUA) Africa Peace Award on behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Dr. Bawumia said the government will do more to be the epitome of peace in Africa.
“President Akufo-Addo’s efforts to ensure that Ghana is enjoying peace and stability are enviable and his steps towards averting the urge for undemocratic regime change in West Africa as Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States, we believe is worth commending considering the prospects. He will continue to pursue programs and policies which consolidate our gains in our democratic credentials and work towards a peaceful and sustainable Africa.”
“The quest for peace and stability on the continent cannot be told down. It is an essential bedrock in realising resilient and sustainable societies,” he added.
A citation accompanying the award read in part said, “Our decision to honour the works of this very astute man for his decades of service to rule of law, democracy, press freedom, and peace is not only admirable but presents great lessons to many… In recent times, his work to restore peace in the Dagbon Kingdom of Ghana after almost 2 decades of Kingship related conflict has been celebrated by many, both in Ghana and on the international scene.”
“In all, his efforts to ensure that Ghana is enjoying peace and stability is enviable and his steps towards averting the urge for undemocratic regime change in West Africa as Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States, we believe is worth commending considering the prospects.”
