In a bid to contribute his quota to the promotion of peace in the upcoming election, a 30-year-old radio technician, Patrick Kwasi Brenya, is embarking on a peace walk in five regions in the country.
Embarking on a 14-day walk from the Brong Ahafo to the nation’s capital Accra, he said the exercise was aimed at educating Ghanaians on the need to promote peace and avoid any form violence.
He said the walk would take him through the Western, Ashanti, Eastern, and the Greater Accra regions where he would have the opportunity to also interact with key stakeholders in some towns and villages in those regions.
Speaking to the Times Sports, Brenya said he deemed it necessary to embark on a walk “because without peace the future of Ghanaians, especially the young ones coming up, would be in jeopardy.”
He said the walk was also to plead with politicians to be mindful of their words on campaign grounds while urging them to encourage their followers to be mindful of their activities and “not engage in any unnecessary arguments that has the tendency of sparking violence.
“Currently, I’m in the Western Region where I would interact with some chiefs and people in the region on the need to promote peace,” he said.
Brenya called on Ghanaians to support him as he contributes to the promotion of peace in the country.
In 2012, it would be recalled that Brenya embarked on a similar campaign where he toured four regions promoting and preaching peace wherever he went.
