He said Ghana is a beacon of peace in Africa and had helped to maintain peace on the continent and in the entire world by contributing troops to the United Nations peace missions.
He said as a nation, we are constituted of many tribes, linguistic groups and cultures, on the political front, we are a multi-party state but we should not allow these differences to divide us or tear us apart.
