He further promised to help raise awareness towards the 2nd Annual Ghana Youth Human Rights Conference 2018, which is scheduled for 1st to 3rd November, 2018.

President of YoHRA, Francis-Xavier Sosu, thanked Mr. Dumelo for accepting to come on board to help the organization advance human rights in Ghana.

According to him, the media must also help to promote peaceful co-existence through human rights education and advocacy.

“There are a lot of violations out there. Most of the victims and perpetrators alike lack education hence the continuous violation.
