Peace is an element of life, peace on the other hand helps in nation
build, on that note As we draw closer to the 2016 elections scheduled
for November 7th, the only word left on the mouth of each and every
citizens is peace.
Today, Friday 17th, June 2016 the Brong Ahafo Regional branch of Ghana’s acclaimed music body, musicians union of Ghana (MUSIGA), took to the
streets of Sunyani the region’s capital to preach peace .
The peace walk scheduled by organisers to commence at exactly 6am begun
at 8am and had a few number of its participating members chanting and
singing along with the musical band. The walk which start on a slow pace
due poor organization, picked up gradually as they com the region’s
capital with plat cards, reading ‘Peace we Need’, ‘MUSIGA for peace’,’Say no to war’ and many more signifying their support for peace and
stability before, during and after the elections.
The two (2) hour long walk which had Jubilee park as its kick off point
finally ended at Centre for National Culture ( CNC ) with both members
and organizers happy about the Initiative and plan to back it with other
activities such as a musical concert to help promote peace in Ghana.
