The Rector of the Valley View University, Techiman Campus, Pastor Dr. Peter Agyekum Boateng has called upon the people of Techiman in particular and Ghana in general to tolerate one another and learn to live in peace, before, during, and after the December Presidential and Parliamentary Elections. This was contained in a peace message he delivered during a week-long evangelistic campaign held on VVU campus in Techiman.
The event under the theme: “Techiman for Peace Evangelistic Campaign” involved students, faculty, staff, and the community outside the University. It was aimed at sharing the Gospel message ahead of the December Elections. Pastor Alexander Agyapong, the acting chaplain of the university was the main speaker.
He spoke passionately on the need for the listeners to have Jesus as the centre of their lives, because Jesus is the fountain of peace. Other topics he presented were the second coming of Jesus Christ, and the New Earth, where he explained would be the culmination of ultimate peace.
The side attractions of the campaign were peace musical concert, peace talk, free literature, free health talk and screening at the university’s hospital on campus.
Mark Anim Yirenkyi and the Deliverance Singers, King Solomon, Thunder Voices, as well as other Gospel artistes gave song ministration.
At the end of the campaign 10 people were baptised, including a Muslim.
