Prepared by UPF Cote D’ivoire
On August 16, 2020, we made a statement in order to appeal for the appeasement of the Ivorian populations, following the violence recorded on August 12, 13 and 14, 2020 which unfortunately resulted in injuring and even murdering of several victims.
Peace Ambassador, Mr. AKE D. Abraham, Principal Spokesperson for the Peace Councils of Abidjan proceeded to read this statement.
It was an opportunity for UPF Cote D’ivoire to offer condolences to the bereaved families and to wish speedy recovery to the injured.
Also, we encouraged the Government and the populations in all their components to choose dialogue, in order to install a serene climate and peace in the nation.
This event was broadcast on the RTI2 broadcast channel on Monday August 17, 2020 in order to pass the message on to the populations.
