March 28, 2011 Ekumfi Eyisam (C/R), March 28, GNA - The Mfantseman Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Henry Kweku Hayfron, has appealed to the youth to erase the misconception that politics is the quickest way of making money.

He said because of that misconception some youth had abandoned their schooling to go into politics.

Addressing a Biennial Delegates Conference of the Methodist Youth Fellowship of the Winneba Diocese of the church at Ekumfi Eyisam near Mankessim on Sunday, Mr Hayfron advised those who want to do politics that they should have the necessary qualification to enhance their appointment to positions when the party they supported won power.

"It will not benefit you if you abandon your education to do politics," Mr Hayfron said.

Mr George Kuntu Blankson, Member of Parliament for Mfantseman East, donated a motorbike to the Ekumfi Circuit of the church for evangelization.

Mr Kuntu Blankson, the Deputy Majority Whip, pledged to provide pews for the church at Eyisam and gave the assurance that he would continue to support the church's evangelization drive.

Mr Kwesi Cab-Addae, a Cape Coast-based legal practitioner, expressed concern about the moral decay among the youth and urged them to lead upright lives.

Nana Baah, Regent of Eyisam, advised the youth to bear in mind that they would grow to become adults therefore they must give the due respect to their elders.

Very Rev De Graft S. Obiri, Superintendent Minister of the Ekumfi Circuit of the Methodist Church, expressed concern about politics of insults that had characterized the airwaves and appealed to leaders of the political parties to advise their supporters to desist from it since it could disturb peace.
