About 80 youth drawn from the three northern regions have attended a day’s Inter-Party Youth Dialogue Committee’s (IPYDC’S) meeting in Tamale.
They came from Tamale, Yendi, Gushegu, Buipe, Bimbila, Bawku, Bolga and Wa.
The meeting spearheaded by the West Africa Network for Peace building, WANEP-GHANA was under the theme, “Promoting party youth relationships for peace in 2012.”
It formed part of WANEP-Ghana’s early preparations aimed at ensuring violence free elections in the three regions of the north.
The National Coordinator of WANEP-Ghana, Justin Bayor reminded the participants of their responsibility to act as “Ambassadors of peace” in their localities.
He tasked them to work hard towards convincing their peers to co-exist peacefully as the best means of minimizing political tension in their respective communities.
Bayor also urged them to assist the security agencies to save lives and property pre and post the election period.
The Technical Adviser of GIZ, Sandra Jensen encouraged the participants to reaffirm their loyalty to peace building at all times.
She said the GIZ and its partners are committed to creating employment for the Ghanaian youth but only in an atmosphere of peace and harmony.
