A number of sons and daughters of Ghana, headed by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, have come together for the #All4Peace campaign.

This campaign features two short, inspiring films that highlight 22 Ghanaian celebrities each saying a sentence that supports the peace in Ghana, and advocating for harmony in this turbulent election period.

The campaign launched on Monday, October 10, 2016, will feature well-known Ghanaians each day. Celebrities like Ama K. Abebrese, Wiyaala, Stephen Appiah, Asamoah Gyan, and Nadia Buari have already featured in the peace message.

Anas told 3news.com ‘Peace must be cherished by all Ghanaians, it’s been gifted to us by our predecessors, posterity would not forgive us if we don’t guide and protect it. The minute we take our relative peace for granted the more danger awaits us.”
