KWAHU CHIEFS ADVISED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EASTER TO DEVELOP THE AREA.
The General Overseer of church of Livingword ministry at Kasoa Ota – City , Bishop R.O Addy has stated that the people of Kwahu has a rich festival of which they can harness it to generate revenue for the area .
He explained that the only festival for the people of Kwahu in the Eastern region is Easter which is celebrated worldwide but the irony part of it is that, they are not taken advantage of the festivity to lure investor to the area
He was of the view that all the activities the people of Kwahu perform during Easter could be traced from the Bible but what the traditional leaders suppose to do is to come out with some regulatory policies to guide the players especially the youth in the celebrations.
“Chiefs and traditional leaders should take advantage of the annual Easter celebration to invite investors, promote peace and development but shouldn’t promote fornication, adultery, during the death of Jesus Christ”, he said.
Bishop O.R Addy made this disclosure to the media during a four day Easter convention under the Theme “Encounter with the blood”
He charged Ghanaians to use the Easter festive to renew their relationship with God.
On his side, the Assistant Pastor of Jesus Alive Ministry, Prophet Isaac Acheampong, asserted that some Ghanaians consider Easter as a season for jubilation therefore instead of them to take a sober reflection of their socio-religious lives, they resort to unsociable activities such alcoholism, sexual immorality and theft.
Prophet Isaac Acheampong of Jesus Alive ministry at Kasoa Galelia claimed that drinking alcohol during Easter is a great sin against the Almighty God and it depreciate one’s relationship with the Creator of the universe.
According to the prophet ,the motive behind Easter celebration is to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ and to renew the relationship between man and God.
Prophet Isaac Acheampong however advised Ghanaians to live a holy life in remembrance of the death of Jesus Christ.
