Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has appealed to Ghanaians to as much as possible minimize person to person contact in order to avoid being affected with the deadly Ebola disease.

He said even though Ghanaians had a culture of greeting visitors by shaking hands, it is about time this was reduced.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur gave the advice when he laid the foundation stone for the Wesley Methodist Church at Asuakwaa in the Brong-Ahafo Region.

The multi-purpose church complex, which would also provide a school for the community, is funded by the Most Reverend Dr Robert Aboagye-Mensah, the immediate Past Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Ghana.

Barring any hitches, the complex is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur said Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria and Senegal had been hit by Ebola due mainly to human to human contact and pleaded with Ghanaians to as much as possible reduce their contacts with people who come from outside their communities.

He commended Rev. Dr Aboagye-Mensah for his exemplary life and also for harnessing the talents of local artisans to build the beautiful edifice for the work of God.

Most Reverend Dr Aboagye-Mensah, said in his sermon that building the church complex was to serve as a legacy and thanks offering to God.

Narrating his life story, Rev. Aboagye-Mensah, said he was so tiny at birth that his family thought he would not survive but his uncle Kwesi Mensah, a traditional priest, took him up and by the grace of God he survived.

He said when he became a priest he realized that God had purpose for his life by raising him from a humble background to become the Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Ghana.

Rev Dr Aboagye-Mensah said like Solomon in the Bible, he decided with the wife to build a magnificent complex where people would come to Asuakwaa and worship the Lord.

He said the building would serve as heritage and his contribution to God for how far he brought him in life.

Earlier, Vice President Amissah-Arthur paid courtesy calls on the chiefs of Chiraa and Asuakwaa.
