Kumasi, April 15, GNA - Ghanaians have been advised to desist from backbiting and the "pull him down" attitude and rather focus on activities that would help reduce poverty to ensure the development of the nation.
Madam Patricia Appiagyei, Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive, who stated this, was, however, sad that people spent quality working time fabricating stories, creating unfounded allegations against their colleagues, which did not augur well for the nation's development. She was speaking at a Good Friday church service at the Saint Paul's Catholic Church at Amakom in Kumasi.
Madam Appiagyei urged Christians to let the death of Christ be a period of change of attitude since his death brought about salvation to mankind.
She commended the people in the metropolis for embracing the clean-up exercises recently organized and urged them to keep it up to rid the metropolis of filth and unsanitary conditions. Reverend Father John Amankwah, Chaplain of the Saint Louis Secondary School, called on the congregation to reflect soberly on the death of Christ and let it strengthen their faith in God.
