The PUCG NUPS-G Choir organized the Peace Choral Concert to re-emphasize the need for Peace and Unity as the country goes into the general elections on December 7, 2016.

The various choirs responded well to the invitation with classy performances which met the crowd’s expectations as they also responded with cheers and energetic dances.

Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Adow Obeng in appreciating the gathering, performances from the choirs and the PUCG drama troop said the atmosphere of unity and peace created through the concert must resonate with all of us, our families and friends to ensure that events leading to the elections are peaceful.

He made a passionate appeal to the general public to be agents of peace and work assiduously towards peaceful elections.

The Director of National Commission for Civic Education, Ms. Abigail Nkansah appealed to the gathering to vote on issues and not for reason of receiving gifts from candidates.

She opined that when one votes for a reason other than competence and the development orientation of a candidate,the very core of the country’s democratic principles is defeated and the country is also bereft of quality leaders.

She therefore implored the general public to put Ghana first when voting and vote wisely as we all work towards peaceful 2016 general elections.

Among those who graced the occasion were members of the local council of churches; the Presbytery Chairperson and Clerk,  Kwahu Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana; and representatives of the Ghana Police Service.
