Conflict in Bawku brings church activities to a halt

By gna

Primate Seth K. Adofo, Spiritual Leader of the Brotherhood Church, has said the church could not post volunteers to its branch in Bawku this year due to the renewed conflict in the area.

He said programmes and activities of the church had come to a halt in the area because volunteers were refusing posting to Bawku for fear of violent attacks especially on men.

Primate Adofo made this known to the GNA in Kumasi on Tuesday after the closing session of a four-day seminar on “co-administration of the church”, organized by the Church for 200 pastors and evangelists from Ghana and Togo.

He said there was the need for people to live in harmony where people are not revengeful, violent, and impatient and be prepared to be their brothers' keeper at all levels.

“People must be able to accept divergent views, accommodate each other no matter their tribal sentiments, religious, language and political affiliations to ensure peaceful co-existence and harmony”, Primate Adofo said.

He stressed the need for all Ghanaians especially Christians to show positive interest in community, regional and nation building and national integration to facilitate peace and unity.

Primate Adofo called for the strengthening of the security services to enable them to curb crime and ensure safety.
