Ambassador Dr. Chief John Metchie 


The African Director, International Association of World Peace Advocates, IAWPA, Dr. John Metchie, on Sunday decorated some prominent Africans with the Eminent Peace Ambassador (EPA) award in recognition of their contributions in bringing peace in their various communities as well as contributing in combating hunger, diseases and other human sufferings.

The award ceremony is part of a three-day United Nations programme on World Peace, taking place at the Tent of Testimonies International Church in Nairobi, Kenya with hundreds of leaders of IAWPA and many other dignitaries from across the world in attendance.

Among those decorated by Ambassador Dr. Metchie are Bishop Chris Atemo, Evang. Mrs. Wanjiku Mwangi and Dr. Alezia Agbala.

Speaking at the event, Metchie who is also the Prime Minister the Anambra State Association of Town Unions (ASATU), urged the new EPAs to consider their appointments as a call for higher service for mankind.

He noted that at no time is the search for peace more demanding than now, with the war in Ukraine, hostilities in Sudan and other conflicts across the world.

Chief Metchie urged politicians, business men and women and people of influence to use their positions to push for actions that promote peace and violence-free societies.

Also speaking, Amb Dr. Emmanuel Nkweke, the spokesman of the Association stressed the need for the award recipients to match their appointments with actions.

He said it was imperative that they engage various stakeholders towards ensuring that their impacts as peace ambassadors are felt not only in Kenya but in the entire African sub-region.
