Ghanaians asked to work towards rebuilding the country
Ayikuma (GAR), Dec. 25, GNA - Pastor Reginald Aubin, Regional Overseer of the Deeper Life Bible Church, has called on Ghanaians to change their attitude and work towards rebuilding the nation.
He advised Ghanaians to discard the idea that the country's socio-economic development could be achieved by the efforts of political parties alone.
Pastor Aubin was speaking at the opening of a four-day Christmas retreat of the Church, at Ayikuma near Dodowa in the Greater Accra Region on Friday.
About 2,000 members of the religious organization drawn from its seven districts, were attending the event, which was on the theme: " Entering the Highway to the Promised Land".
It was aimed at strengthening the cordial relationship between the members and building their capacity to enable them to face the challenges of life.
Rev. Aubin said the country could develop only if Ghanaians accepted God as their guide adding that "God has endowed the nation with riches and it is proper that we conform to his image".
Pastor Joseph Kwame Ofori Agyemang, Assistant Commandant of the Church, advised drivers to observe traffic regulations and avoid driving under the influence of alcohol and unnecessary overtaking to save lives during Christmas.
Mrs Cecilia Apronti, Divisional Children's Coordinator of the Church, advised children to be obedient, respectful and take their education seriously, to enable them to acquire skills and knowledge required for national development.
Pastor Godfried Otui-Boateng, Divisional Youth Coordinator of the Church, asked the youth to desist from armed robbery, prostitution, alcoholism, theft and sexual promiscuity and embrace the gospel.
