The Second Lady, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur, has called on Christians and the clergy to lead and affect the human society and the nation with good Christina values that they have been taught.

Speaking at the 70th graduation ceremony at the Trinity Theological Seminary in Accra, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur said, “You have been called by the Lord and you have a greater responsibility to lead and affect the human society, the nation with good Christian values.”

Mrs. Matilda Amissah Arthur said the Theme: Morality and the Academy: the way forward in the 21st century was appropriate for the ceremony because of current happenings in the world.

The Second Lady said there are three things that draw pastors and men of God back, money, women and fame, so as a matter of principles, she advised the grandaunts to shun away from that act, so that they can do the work that God has called them to do.

 Mrs. Amisssah –Arthur further stated that these days’ people would not flock the church if there are no miracles, signs and wonders, but they should remember that their profession is a calling, so God expects them to do what is right .Adding that we expect a lot from them sometimes, because they have been entrusted with issues of integrity.

On his part The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof Ernest Aryeetey, bemoaned the alarming rate at which “too many Ghanaians” are cheating their way through the system to buy titles and acquire positions they are unfit to occupy. On his part “There are far too many Ghanaians who have titles they have not worked for.

He said: “It is time Ghanaians ensured that everyone who leaves our Universities, Polytechnics and Seminaries are taking away certificates that they have worked for.”

“It is important that students leave Seminaries, Polytechnics and Universities knowing that cheating their way into the public space can only [lead] to their bad fate,” he said, adding: “Today at [the University of Ghana], Legon, there are 15 people, all working in the public sector, whose certificates we are investigating.”
