The Executive Director for Ghana Institute of Governance and Security, GIGS has said that, it is never too late to preach peace to Ghanaians ahead of the 2016 elections.
Mr David Agbe reacting to comment by some stalwarts that, peace messages are too late to be said to Ghanaians as it might not be able to make any impact on the upcoming elections.
But Mr Agbe on Enne Ghana, News Analysis Program hosted by Yaa Titi Okrah Yangy said “we can’t say there is peace everywhere, but the world is relatively peaceful which we all enjoy.”
To him, most lives that have been lost through wars could still be living if peace was preached to them to realize it benefits.
It is not too late to preach peace at all especially with just about two weeks to go to the polls, it is therefore very important to talk about peace now for Ghanaians to know the danger that awaits us should it be destroyed, he added.
Dr Kwesi Aning a security analyst with the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping and Training Centre (KAIPTC), has said rewarding people who perpetrate political violence has been solidified in the minds of political party supporters to the extent that it has become too late to talk about peace, ahead of the 7 December polls.
But Mr David Agbe said he does not sigh with anyone who says it is too late preach peace.
