Brother Ernest Osei-Baffour, the Sunyani Diocesan Chairman of the Methodist Youth Fellowship, has called on the youth to expose and resist attempts by politicians who may approach and to influence them to foment trouble.
Bro Osei-Baffour gave the advice when he addressed the closing session of the Sunyani Diocesan Prayer Conference of the Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF) at Chiraa in the Sunyani West District.
The four-day conference was attended by about 400 members of the fellowship in the diocese.
“As the youth we must be bold and say no to any person or group of persons who would want to lure us to commit any act of lawlessness, Bro Osei-Baffour told the fellowship members.
He appealed to the fellowship to uphold the principles and doctrines of the church and live in accordance and dictates of the bible to obtain God’s blessing and prosperity.
The Very Reverend James Apraku, the Superintendent Minister of the Chiraa Circuit of the Church, urged Christians and religious bodies to pray for a peaceful election.
Mr Justice Samuel Adjei, the Deputy Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, expressed concern about the upsurge in social vices among the youth in the country.
He said the surge in cyber crime and armed robbery required a concerted effort by all to control the situation.
