Mahama to attend maiden Kofi Annan peace, security forum

Former President John Dramani Mahama has accepted an invitation to participate in the maiden Kofi Annan Peace and Security (KAPS) Forum.

The event is scheduled to take place from 4 to 5 September 2019.

Speaking to the Commandant of the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre in Accra, AVM Griffiths Evans, and his management team, who called on him to officially invite him to the event, Mr Mahama said security remains a paramount issue in Africa because “if we are to achieve the kind of progress we need in order to create a decent and dignified life for our people, we must have absolute peace for development to take place.”

The forum is also in honour of former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan
