  • 0

Deputy Danish Ambassador to Ghana Vibeke Sandholm Pedersen said Denmark has vowed to support Ghana in maintaining the country’s peace and cohesion.

Pedersen disclosed this at the opening of a two-day trainer of trainers’ workshop for youth in some selected tertiary institutions in southern Ghana, Cape Coast.

She said, “The scourge of violent conflicts in some West African States must not be allowed in Ghana, hence, the need to jealously guard it for sustainable development to flourish.

“To this extent, the Danish Government is working assiduously with key partners to avert violent extremism and other forms of conflicts and vulnerabilities that threaten the country’s stability.”

It was organized by the National Peace Council (NPC) in collaboration with the Embassy of Denmark as part of a national campaign to enlighten the citizenry particularly, the youth to sidestep violence.

The campaign is also to lay bare the antics, dangers, and the need to resist all attempts to be radicalized by extremists.

The participants were drawn from the University of Cape Coast, Cape Coast Technical University, University of Education, Winneba, Perez University, University of Ghana, University of Professional Studies, and the Takoradi Technical University.

They were taken through, “key concepts on sustaining national peace like violent extremism,” “violent terrorism,” “radicalization” and “countering or preventing violent extremism in West Africa and globally.”
