ACCRA, GHANA- The Executive Secretary of the National Commission on Small Arms and Light Weapons, Mr. Samuel Williams Yeboah, paid a courtesy call on the heads of two institutions (Narcotics Control Commission and National Peace Council) in Accra on Wednesday, 12th April 2023 as part of efforts to strengthen inter-agency collaborations and promote peace and security in the country.

The Executive Secretary first visited the Director-General of the Narcotics Control Commission, Mr. Kenneth Adu Amanfoh, to discuss issues borders on the proliferation of small arms and illicit drug trade. The nexus between the proliferation of small arms and the drug trade cannot be overemphasized, and as such, combined efforts are needed to curb the menace.

Mr. Yeboah highlighted the link between drug trafficking and extremist groups, who often use drug profits to finance their activities.

Mr. Amanfoh reiterated his commitment to working with the Commission towards the common goal of ensuring peace and security in the country.

Later in the day, Mr. Yeboah paid a similar visit to the Executive Secretary of the National Peace Council, Mr. George Amoh. During the meeting, the two officials discussed the role of both institutions in promoting peace and stability in the country.

Mr. Samuel W. Yeboah reiterated the importance of building synergies between the two institutions in their efforts towards achieving peace.

Mr. Amoh stressed on the need for rigorous awareness campaigns to minimize the trend of youth brandishing weapons and for more education on the dangers of such behavior.

He also assured him of a partnership between the two institutions to educate the public about the dangers of arms possession and its impact on the peace and stability of the country.

The journey is short ❤

An elderly woman got on a bus and sat down. At the next stop, a strong, grumpy young woman climbed up and sat down sharply beside the old woman, hitting her with her numerous bags.

When she saw that the elderly woman remained silent, the young woman asked her why she had not complained when she hit her with her bags.

The elderly woman replied with a smile: ′ ′ There is no need to be rude or discuss something so insignificant, as my trip next to you is so short because I am going to get off at the next stop. "

This answer deserves to be written in gold letters: ′ ′ There is no need to discuss something so insignificant, because our journey together is too short. "

Each of us must understand that our time in this world is so short, that darkening with struggles, useless arguments, jealousy, not forgiving others, discontent and an attitude of constant discovery is a ridiculous waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart ?. Stay calm.
The trip is too short.

Did someone betray you, intimidate, cheat or humiliate you? Relax. Excuse. The trip is too short.

Did someone insult you without reason ?. Stay calm. Ignore it. The trip is too short.

Did a neighbor comment on the chat that you didn't like ?. Stay calm. Ignore him. Forgive that. The trip is too short.

Whatever the problem someone has brought us, remember that our journey together is too short.

No one knows the length of that trip. Nobody knows when it will arrive at its stop. Our trip together is too short.

We will appreciate friends and family.

Let us be respectful, kind and forgive, we will be filled with gratitude and joy, after all our trip together is very short.

Let’s commit to tranquility – Peace Council

https://www.gbcghanaonline.com/general/lets-commit-to-tranquility-peace-council/2021/

The Executive Secretary of the National Peace Council (NPC), Mr. George Amoh, has asked Ghanaians to commit themselves to maintain the peace of the country.

“We cannot afford at this time of our history to allow anything to derail the peace that God has graciously given to us as Ghanaians,” he said.

Mr Amoh said that Tuesday at the opening ceremony of a three-day capacity-building workshop organised for regional staff of the NPC with support from the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).

The workshop is to build the capacity of the staff in conflict and project management and report writing techniques. Mr Amoh described 2020 as a very challenging year for the NPC primarily because it was an election year and the scare of vigilantism was very pronounced.
He said the development of a road map and code of conduct for the political parties, however, helped the country to go through the electioneering successfully. He said the NPC had identified polarisation and intolerance as the topmost issues confronting the peace of the county.

Mr Amoh cited polarisation in the areas of politics, religion and ethnicity as one of the issues that the NPC was working hard to address.
As part of the efforts to curb the menace, he said, the NPC had decided not only to build the capacity of its staff but “also involve peace actors in areas we think can help reduce intolerance in our Ghanaian community”.

Aside from that, he said, the NPC would also embark upon activities to ensure that political intolerance was reduced.

While acknowledging that Ghana still remained the most peaceful country in the West African Sub-region, he said a lot more remained to be done.

Mr Amoh said there was the need for Ghanaians to “rise up to the occasion and keep the county as a topmost peaceful country not only in the sub-region but in Africa.
