Acting Municipal Chief Executive Officer for Asokwa- Hon Akwanuasah Gyimah caused a great stir at a Pastors conference which was held in Kumasi on Wednesday 1st September 2021.
Rising to the defense of the ruling government (NPP) consequent to the collosal pressure of the popular “fix the country” crusade, he has called on church leaders to advise the youth and the adult population to fix their attitude.
“We expect government to fix the country for us without fixing ourselves. The indiscipline within the society and sometimes among the adult population which includes insecurity, bribery, greed, ungodliness, laziness etc are high within us but we turn to blame politicians for them to fix the country.”
“Let our youth know that money is not the end of everything…Let our youth know that hard work pays and not long prayers at camp meetings and crusades…Let the youth see in you the attitudes that will motivate them to act or behave like you”, he told the Pastors at the conference in a speech which was read on his behalf.
Present at the Congress were Retired Archbishop for the Anglican Church- Kumasi diocese Most Reverend Professor Daniel Yinkah Sarfo, Rev Douglas Okonah Frempong, Rtd Rev. Osei Safo Kantanka among others.
“It is hard work, discipline and determination and God will never let us down…Let us encourage the youth to learn trade, pursue courses that can guarantee future employment. Please let the youth know that their skills can earn them a living and not “sakawa” money”, he added.
