Right Reverend Francis Amenu, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian (E.P) Church, on Saturday urged young people to shy away from doing “dirty work” for politicians in the forthcoming elections.
He asked them to instead, be discerning and support only politicians, who would present positive plans and programmes for the development of the country.
Rt. Rev. Amenu said this at the launch of volume II video and audio album entitled, “Agbe nye nusi ne woe,” (in Ewe), meaning Life is what you make it, by the Ho East Presbytery Christian Youth Builders (CYB) of the E.P Church at the weekend.
He advised the youth not to lose their lives for people who would want to create confusion and chaos in the country.
The clergyman said: “You have a lot to live for so you must preach and ensure peace at the elections so that the country will remain united for you to enjoy in the future”.
Rt. Rev. Amenu commended the Ho East Presbytery CYB for producing the album, and said the church would continue to create avenues for the youth to make meaningful contributions to the country.
Mr Henry Ametepe, Deputy Volta Regional Minister, asked young people to embrace peace and eschew negative tendencies.
He praised members of the CYB for putting their energies into productive use, and advised them to compose and perform more songs to promote Ghanaian cultural heritage.
