The Council has recently expressed concern about the usage of intemperate language by political actors and plans to meet with the leadership of all political parties to reinforce their commitments towards peace ahead of the 2024 general election. The meeting aims to discuss the utterances of political actors in recent times and promote peaceful political engagements.

Reverend Adu Gyamfi slammed critics who have described the Council as inactive, stating that the Council works diligently, and its members do not receive any salary. He reiterated that the Council is committed to its mandate to prevent conflicts and maintain peace in Ghana.

The National Peace Council was established in 2011 as a statutory independent body by an Act of Parliament to prevent, manage, and resolve conflicts peacefully in Ghana. The Council consists of members from different religious and ethnic backgrounds, professionals, and civil society organizations. Its activities include conflict prevention and resolution, peace advocacy, and training in conflict management.
