Clergyman calls for judicious use of Ghana’s resources
A clergyman has called for judicious exploitation of Ghana’s natural and human resources for the effective management of the country instead of the people depending on foreign aid with conditions attached.
Reverend Dr Isaac Mills-Owoo, South West Sector Head of Ghana Baptist Convention, who made the call, said the country’s over reliance on foreign and donor support was destroying its dignity and cultural and traditional values.
Rev. Dr Mill-Owoo, who is also the Executive Director of Redemption Baptist School, was speaking at the third Speech and Prize-Giving Day of the Cape Coast Redemption Baptist Schools, on the theme: “Courtesy a Tool for Students Development”, in Cape Coast.
He called on African leaders to take proactive steps to make the continent self-reliant and said faith, integrity and excellence formed the bedrock for the growth and development of society.
Rev. Dr Mill–Owoo said Ghana was going through problems because of the lack of integrity, self-centeredness and dishonesty.
Mr. William Addison, headmaster of the Redemption Baptist Schools, expressed his gratitude to the founders of the schools for establishing such a Christian institution and called on the public to support it.
Rhoda Bentum, the school prefect, commended the teachers for their hard work and advised his colleague students to study hard to enable them to pass their examinations to project the image of the school.
Dr. Mrs. Sena kpeglo, an opinion leader, congratulated the award winners and urged them to work harder in order to win more laurels.
