All African Churches (AAC) has called on Africa Leaders to ensure that justice, peace and good governance reign to encourage the youth to stay on to help in the development agenda of the continent.

According to the AAC, greed, lack of love for neighbours and bad governance were the major causes of the migration problems bedeviling the continent.

The Most Reverend Titus K. Awotwi Pratt, the Presiding Bishop of the Methodist of Ghana, who announced this at the end-of-year party and Nine Lessons and Carols in Accra, said the AAC issued the communique at the just ended meeting at Nairobi, Kenya.

He said the AAC also identified political instability and greed on the part of African leaders as the remote cause of migration problems in Africa.

Speaking on the significance of Christmas, the Presiding Bishop said the content of Christmas was peace and love, which led to all good things and urged Christians to set the pace to make the celebration meaningful.

He said Christmas needed to be celebrated properly and with dignity to show the way for unbelievers to follow.

“Christianity is built around the divine love of God and it teaches us to love and respect one another,” he said and urged Christian to shine in their corners by putting smiles on the faces of less privileged people during the Christmas season.

“As Christians we can influence society’s perceptions positively through the way we celebrate Christmas. Christmas starts with salvation history and we must not celebrate it as the earthly will celebrate it,” he said.

The Church also used the occasion to present a token to all retired Ministers of the Church.
