Book on Alavanyo, Nkonya conflict launched
At the launch of Peace-building at the Edge of Death- a book on the Alavanyo and Nkonya conflict in Accra, the Paramount chief of Alavanyo Togbegah Atakora commended the role played by chiefs, elders and youth in the peace-building process in the flashpoint.
He praised the author for his effort and added that the book exposes the truth about the conflict and creates the grounds for lasting peace and development in the area.
Alban Bagbin, who was also in attendance, commended Abraham Klutsey, for his selfless effort and recommended the book to all.
Present at the function were important dignitaries, including the Chief of Nkonya Nana Okokor Kofi III.
The publication tackles the rather complex subject of the Alavanyo and Nkonya conflict.
The author Abraham Korbla Klutsey is the founder and Executive Director of Youth for Peace and Security-Africa and a Mathematics major from the University of Ghana.
He has lived with the people in the conflict zone under review and as a result in a special position to articulate issues regarding the disagreement which has set the two people apart.
The book is expected to encourage the youth to take interest in peace-building activities, as the author has done.
