Christians urged to help calm tension
Kumasi, April 05, GNA - The Anglican Bishop of Kumasi, the Right Reverend Dr Daniel Yinkah-Sarfo, has urged Christians to provide the needed leadership and help calm tension as the nation prepared to go to polls in the coming December.
He said they should encourage the people to be patient, tolerant of each other and accept to be at peace with God, themselves and their neighbours.
He said these in his Good Friday and Easter Message issued in Kumasi.
The Rt Rev Dr Yinkah-Sarfo said as they celebrated the occasion of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection, they should pray fervently that God would draw all Ghanaians together as one people with a common destiny and that Easter should remind Christians of Christ's victory over death and that there is life after death for believers.
The Anglican Bishop advised them to use the opportunity offered by the season for sober reflection and to renew their resolve to become each other's keeper “in these challenging times as Jesus did.”
“We should feel for our sins and of the necessity for changing our ways of life”, he added and urged all qualified voters to take part in the on-going biometric registration exercise.
This, he said, would enable them to vote for competent and God-fearing people when the time comes.
