Listen to article

Assin Foso (C/R), March 19, GNA- A one-day sensitisation workshop on conflict resolution has ended at the Assin District of the Central Region.

World Vision Ghana and the Assin District Assembly jointly organised the workshop attended by heads of department, chiefs, opinion leaders and the various youth groups in the Assin District.

Mr. Ebenezer Okoampa, Associate Director of World Vision Ghana, took the participants through the concepts of resolving conflicts and the process at which conflict can be avoided in the homes, towns and also at the workplaces.

He said so long as conflict was part of human nature, there was the need to always find a lasting solution to resolve them.

Mr. Okoampa was optimistic that the workshop would go a long way to enlighten the chiefs and all who mattered in resolving conflict issues in their areas of jurisdiction.

He urged the chiefs to extend the knowledge acquired at the workshop to others in their communities.

The Assin Area Development Manager for World Vision Ghana, Mr. Armo-Anno said where there was peace there was absolute development, adding that without peace in the country, the socio-economic progress of the nation would be at a standstill.

He said the second face of the workshop would be organised for the various stakeholders for Local Capacity of Peace process (LCP) and the concept of bridging peace in the Assin District.

Mr. Armo-Anno stressed the need for the Assin District Assembly for supporting such a worthy course.
