The President General of the Centre of Awareness Global Peace Mission, Professor Samuel Ato Duncan, has announced a $2 million Global Peace campaign and called for an end to the Russia/Ukraine war.
The money is intended to finance a five-year strategic plan to promote world peace.
He charged during the launch the leaders of Russia and Ukraine to seek peace among themselves and end the ongoing war as soon as possible.
The initiative aims at ending chaos and violence in the world with traditional leaders, youth groups, and thought leaders as the focus groups of citizens against wars.
Prof Duncan further appealed to the United Nations (UN) and other international institutions to help seek peace in Russia and Ukraine.
The respected academic was speaking at the fourth public lecture under the theme, “Targeting Leadership Across The Globe To Achieve Global Peace” at the main auditorium of the University of Cape Coast yesterday.
According to him, seeking peace in the world is part of his God-given assignment and he would do everything possible to undertake activities that promote peace in the world.
Prof Duncan also said the fourth public lecture and launch of the five-year action plan are to introduce to major stakeholders a new route to “complement our efforts in achieving global peace.”
He added that the mission will create solutions and remain one hundred per cent neutral in all its dealings and activities.
