Christians urged to help fight poverty

The Most Rev. Philip Naameh, the Archbishop of the Tamale Diocese of the Catholic Church, has urged Christians and other religious faiths to come together to fight “Globalization differences”  to give way to globalization fraternity to combat the inequality, poverty and  injustice.

He said the concept of brotherliness had broken down in society and this had created disunity.

The Most Rev. Naameh was addressing a large congregation that thronged the Ola Catholic Cathedral in Tamale to usher in the New Year.

Most Rev. Naameh urged the congregation to pray for long life and prosperity in 2014 and that to receive God’s blessings and called for forgiveness so that Ghanaians lived in a just society.

He appealed to Ghanaians to cultivate the culture of saving so as to break  out of the circle of poverty and that the Catholic Church would soon introduce a micro credit scheme to give soft loans to people.
