National Peace Council rolls out “Peace Fund” to support operations

The fund is expected to help the National Peace Council raise money to carry out its activities effectively

The National Peace Council (NPC) is poised to roll out a “Peace Fund” in a bid to mobilise resources to support its operations, a member of the body, Maulvi Mohammed Bin Salih has said.

Speaking on Sunday Night with sit-in host Karen Dodoo Antwi, Bin Salih said: “The funding component of the Peace Council wasn’t adequately put in place, so that’s a big challenge, so the funds are not readily available for the Peace Council to promptly carry out some of the activities.”

He added: “Very soon we will be launching a peace fund which the act gives us the permission to do. We will be appealing to all manner of people in Ghana to contribute towards the peace fund.”

Maulvi Bin Salih, who doubles as the Ameer of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana, said individuals and corporate institutions must support the council to maintain the prevailing peace in the country.

“You the businessman sitting down there, you are sitting down and enjoying peace because the Peace Council is to ensure there is peace in this country, if there is no peace what are you going to do with all your riches.”

He said the NPC is currently unable to establish secretariats across the country because of inadequate funding for its activities.
