A Non-Governmental Organisation, Centre for Development and Policy (CEDEPA- GH) has organised a peace stakeholder’s dialogue to educate young people in the Northern region on the need for peaceful coexistence before, during and after the December 7 polls.

The dialogue comes on the back of growing reports suggesting that the 2016 polls could be chaotic, particularly in the Northern Region, where some twelve (12) constituencies have been identified as dangerous hotspot of electoral disturbances.
