Accra, April 19, GNA –
The Reverend Dr Cyril Fayose, General Secretary of the Christian Council of
Ghana, has urged Christians to exemplify the big sacrifice Jesus Christ made to
bring mankind closer to God.
He said as the world
marked Easter, an important event on the Christian Calendar, the faithful
should be real apostles who would mainstream peace, hard work, humility,
forgiveness and sacrifice in their daily lives.
Speaking to the Ghana
News Agency in Accra on Good Friday, Rev Fayose reminded Christians of the
essence of Easter, which is about “healing wounds and forgiving one another.
“Suffice it to say
that Christians, therefore, need not bear grudges against one another but show
mercy and love always.”
Rev. Fayose said since
Easter is a Christian season celebrated with lots of travelling activities,
drivers should also take their time and drive safely and avoid alcohol while
“The drivers shouldn’t
be in a hurry just to make money…it is about taking people to their
destination safely to celebrate the occasion.
“We want each and
everyone of us alive”, Rev Fayose said.
He appealed to the
Government to fix all the bad roads to prevent accidents.
He acknowledged that
most of the times accidents occurred due to human error and faulty vehicles
“but the terrible roads also contribute to the menace.”
Most of Ghana’s major
trunk roads needed to be converted into dual carriageways to ease traffic and
save lives, Rev. Fayose said.
He said the bad
portions of the Accra-Kumasi-Tamale highway, the Aflao through Accra to Half
Assini, and the Accra-Ho-Hohoe road, also known as the Eastern Corridor roads,
must be repaired to ensure safety.
