Peaceful Character Education Foundation (PCEF) will organise a sensitization and awareness campaign to educate Ghanaians on how to maintain peace during and after the 2016 general elections.
The campaign will be under the theme Peace In Ghana 2016 and beyond.
“As citizens of Ghana it is important for us to live in a country of peace and tranquility. This peace must be realised in all facets of our life, at all levels of our social fabric and in all our institutions including our homes, schools, workplaces and places of worship.
“As part of this initiative PCEF is organising a sensitisation and awareness campaign to educate all Ghanaians on how to keep the peace before, during and after the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary elections in Ghana,” a statement from PCEF said.
The campaign will be based on a 5 point plan listed below.
