Members of the writers’ club in Holy Child Senior High School, Cape Coast, have added their voice to the call on all Ghanaians, especially members of political parties to ensure that the country continues to enjoy peace before, during and after the December 7 elections. The sentiments of the students numbering over hundred were expressed in a peace walk they embarked on from their school through some principal streets of Cape Coast. The theme for the peace walk was ‘ Holycho for Peace’. Speaking to the reporter, one of the students, Patience by name, said that they had taken upon themselves to make their parents and guardians aware that as children, they would be the ones to suffer most if anything untoward happened in the country as a result of the elections.
They were undertaking the walk to inform all Ghanaians that students need peaceful environment to undergo their academic training and so voters should exercise their rights to vote in a peaceful manner so that the current peace being enjoyed in the country would continue after December 7.
The Chaplain, Fr. Atta Baidoo and Madam Patricia who accompanied the girls on the walk, commended members of the club for coming up with such a noble idea to do something to help Mother Ghana. According to Madam Pat, the club members sponsored the walk with the approval of the school.
Some of the placards they carried bore inscriptions like ‘ United we stand, Divided we fall’, ‘Peace To The Streets’, ‘unity’,’ One People, One Nation, One Ghana’ among others.
