Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional Minister, has called on the chiefs and people of Nkonya and Alavanyo to help maintain the prevailing peace in the area for about a year now.
He urged both sides to continue to work together to protect the areas in a positive light to attract investors.
Dr Letsa said this at an event to mark the International Day of Peace, organised by the Volta Regional office of the National Peace Council in Ho under the theme: “Our Collective Action for Peace”.
“The peace in Nkonya and Alavanyo must be maintained, and I will like to appeal to the chiefs and queens, the young and the old that we must work towards it every day”, he said.
The Regional Minister said the Regional Coordinating Council was doing its best to sustain the amity and asked the Regional Peace Council to continue engaging both sides for a lasting solution.
Reverend Seth Mawutor, Chairman of the Regional Peace Council, said the non-existence of a “joint problem-solving dialogue platform” was “partly responsible” for the occasional killings that have rocked the area over the years, and that the Alavanyo-Nkonya Insider Peacebuilding Committee, formed to mend the broken relationship between the two areas, would be revived.
He said Peace Council would continue with strategic engagements with relevant stakeholders to facilitate the peace process.
He expressed gratitude to the Volta and Oti Regional Coordinating Councils, the UNDP, and the media for their roles in the peacebuilding process.
