Don’t take peace for granted – UN Coordinator advises Ghana
Mr Charles Abani, the United Nations (UN) Resident Coordinator, Ghana, has advised Ghanaians not to take the peace being enjoyed in the country for granted.
He said there were countries who through complacency had experienced the consequences of taking their peaceful state for granted.
Mr Abani gave the advice on Tuesday at the Commemoration of the 2021 International Day of Peace in Accra.
He said peace was fundamental to everything and was the rocket fuel of development, adding that, the presence of peace fuelled development and the absence of it stagnated development.
He said as the adult community endeavoured to create opportunities for the country, the youth equally had the responsibility to train themselves and respect leaders and authorities.
