The Center of Awareness Global Peace Mission (COA-GPM), a non–governmental, non-sectorial, and non-religious organization yesterday, Sunday, April 10th, held its 4th Global Peace Public Lecture at Auditorium 900 in the University Of Cape Coast.
The theme for the programme, held annually was dubbed “Targeting Leadership Across The Globe to Achieve Global Peace “. According to the organizers, the uniqueness of the chosen day for the programme was that it coincided with this year’s annual Christians Lent event “The Palm Sunday” which commemorates the Triumphant Entry of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem.
The event which was held under the distinguished Patronage of the King of the Asante Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, hosted about two thousand five hundred (2,500) participants comprising Traditional Leaders, Professors in the Academia, Student Leaders, Religious and Political Leaders as well as Security Services Personnel.
Prior to the event, the President General of the Center of Awareness Global Peace Mission the architect of the Global Peace Initiative, Professor Ato Duncan who also doubled as the keynote speaker for the lectures said “Palm Sunday depicts the Lord JESUS CHRIST’S commitment to daring every consequence to go to Jerusalem and accomplish His Mission of dying to save mankind and bring Peace and Love to Humanity”.
“Presently with the world experiencing Wars, Insurrections, Fundamentalism, and Violence from the North to South and East to West the imperatives of Peace must be the Clarion Call of all and Sundry from Leadership to the Ordinary Man on the street. It is on this premise that the theme for the 4TH Public Lecture must be of great concern and interest to humanity in general especially members of all Faith since every religion talks about Equality and Peaceful Co-existence”, he added.
The maiden edition of the COA Public Lecture took place at the University of Cape Coast in 2017. This was followed by the second edition in 2018 at the Accra International Conference Center. The third and fourth editions also took place at the University of Cape Coast.
