ModernGhana.com reports “Para Cyclist Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah To Ride For Peaceful Elections In Ghana.”
Emmanuel is preparing once again to circle Ghana, as he did in Emmanuel’s Dream, but this time it will be a peace tour to promote a peaceful general election. At a press conference, he pointed out that disabled people are among society’s most vulnerable, along with children and the elderly, and they often have no place to go if war erupts.
The Ghanaian election is set to take place on December 7, 2016, so Emmanuel’s “Riding For Peace 2016” event will start on November 7, 2016, in Accra, the capital of Ghana. He’ll ride with ten other para cyclists on a route to Cape Coast and Takoradi, up through Ashanti and the northern region, down through Volta, and finally to Emmanuel’s hometown, Koforidua, where he will cast his own vote. By the time they are finished, they will have biked to promote peace through 240 districts in one month. Riding for Peace 2016 is asking for support from companies, organizations, and all who want peace for Ghana.
Good luck, Emmanuel!
