Ghana is legacy for the youth so they should protect it- Rev. Asante

The Chairman of the National Peace Council, Most Rev. Professor Emmanuel Asante, has said the youth should regard the nation as their legacy and should not allow themselves to be used by selfish politicians to destabilize it.

He said the youth should be “bold enough to say no to violence and injustice, for Ghana is the only country that we belong and live in”.

Most Rev. Professor Asante, who is also the Presiding Bishop of the Methodist of Church of Ghana, said this at the induction service of Right Rev. Kweku Buabeng-Odoom as the bishop of the Winneba Diocese of the Church at Winneba on Sunday.

Most Rev. Prof Asante said people should choose Ghana first and not to create mayhem before, during and after the December elections.

“Ghana is our only country, let us share ideas, tolerate each others’ views and never to indulge in any acts that can plunge the nation into discomfort as occurred in some countries,” he said.

Most Rev. Asante advised people who use phone calls to insult and attack others to put a stop to it because it is not the best in the country’s democratic dispensation.

He appealed to Right Rev. Kweku Buabeng-Odoom, 55, to serve, trust, and have confidence in the Lord, for people who waited on him had their strength renewed.
