Half Assini (W/R), May 28, GNA-The Apostolic Administrator of the Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese of the Catholic Church, Most Rev. Matthias Kwabena Nketsiah, has urged Ghanaians to be advocates of peace now, during and after the December general elections.
Most Rev. Nketsiah said 60% of Ghanaians are Christians and expressed concern that on both the television and radio stations only 'factionalism and enmity are highly preached contrary to the peace the nation requires'.
Most Rev. Nketsiah was is also the Catholic Bishop of Cape Coast Diocese, was preaching at a Mass to mark Pentecost Day of the Catholic Church at Half Assini in the Jomoro District on Sunday.
The Day marks the coming down of the Holy Spirit on the apostles after the ascension of Jesus Christ some 2,000 years ago.
He appealed to Ghanaians 'to bear fruits of patience, humility and love' to avoid chaos in the country during and after the elections.
Pope Benedict XVI appointed Most Rev Nketsiah as the Apostolic Administrator of the Sekondi-Takoradi of Catholic Church in December last year after the resignation of the then Bishop Martin Darko on health grounds.
