Right Reverend Joseph Afrifa-Agyekum, Catholic Bishop of Koforidua, has called on Christians to build strong familiesï¿½to help hold the society together and care for each other.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ He made the call at the commissioning of a Ghc800.000 Parish Hall for the St. Bakhita Catholic Church at Koforidua.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½The multi-purpose hall was started in 2010 and is expected to be used to generate revenue for the church.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½Rev.ï¿½Afrifa-Agyekum said Christians these days did not hold themselves together and as such the slightestï¿½challenge led to families breaking up.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½He said most people these days spent most of their time on social media network, instead of reading and understanding the bible to draw them closer to God.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ Rev. Afrifa-Agyekum advisedï¿½Christiansï¿½to desist from corruption, hatred for one another, lesbian and gay marriages and other social vices to build a futureï¿½of hopeï¿½for the country.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½He advised the church to develop the maintenance culture to help keep the facility for a long time.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½Dr Kwaku Acheampong, Municipal Chief Executive of the New Juaben Municipal Assembly, called on stakeholders in education to play their role to ensure quality education to the youth.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½He said per the new Local Government Regulations, all houses without toilet would be mandated to build one within six months.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½Dr Acheampong advised the public to get work permit from the assembly before embarking on any project in their communities to ensure proper planning and management of resources in the municipality.
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½He called on people to voluntarily pay taxes for the assemblies and government to raise revenue toï¿½developï¿½the country.ï¿½
