Methodist youth asked to fulfil their civic duties


The Right Reverend John Harvey-Ewusi, Bishop of the Sekondi Diocese of the Methodist Church has urged Christians to work in unity and ensure that the pending elections were incident free.

He said the use of abusive language, intimidations, harassment and obstruction were not signs of democratic maturity.

Bishop Harvey-Ewusi said these at the first ever home coming summit of the Essikadu Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF) over the weekend at Essikadu near Sekondi.

He said Christians must exercise their civic responsibility with care, decency and the respect for one another, and avoid collecting bribes, to vote in a particular way.

“As followers of Christ, we must set morally high standards for non-Christians to emulate and we must encourage others to exercise their right to choose,” he said.

Mr Seth Amoah, Chairman of the Sekondi Diocese MYF, said the youth must continue the efforts of their predecessors and set examples for generations to come.

He urged the youth to develop their capacities and make themselves employable.
