Ex-England defender Sol Campbell trusts Ghanaian journalists to preach peace ahead of 2016 elections
LISTEN JUN 9, 2016

Former England and Arsenal defender Sol Campbell says he trusts Ghanaian journalists to preach peace before, during and after the upcoming general elections in November.

The three times FA Cup winner charged local journalists to double their efforts in becoming peace ambassadors to sensitize Ghanaians ahead of the elections.

'I think that is the most important reason for this game and that is why you (journalists) are here. I believe you will send the message across for a peaceful election this year," he said after the Vodafone Unity Match with Asante Kotoko.

'I believe that the more you (journalists) get the message out into Ghana, the better it is. Peace is all we need and that is all we preach.

'I also know it was live on television and Ghanaians are watching.'

The Jamaican-born English defender was a member of the Arsenal side that went unbeaten in the English Premier League in 2004.
