Mother Emily Agozie, chairperson of the Keta-Akatsi chapter of the Association stated that the Association is equipping the Christian mothers with the needed knowledge to preach peace to the gallant and energetic youth of the country who may be used by some politicians to perpetrate violence during the upcoming general elections and to urge them not to give in to such acts.
