General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Dr. Cyril Fayose, has praised Vice President Bawumia for his cordial relations with practitioners of all religions in the country, despite being a strong member of the Muslim faith.
Rev. Dr. Fayose said, “sometimes I get confused, whether he is a Christian or a Muslim, but whatever the case is, he is a friend of the Church.”
The General Secretary of the Council made this observation at the opening ceremony of the Ghana Youth Congress on Tuesday. The event is a precursor to an African Youth Congress to be organised by the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC). It is under the theme, ‘Ghana, My Home, My Future’.
According to him, the Vice President readily said, ‘Yes’ when invited for the programme. “That shows his love for the Church as well, and for young people,” Dr. Fayose noted.
Rev. Fayose indicated that the Vice President’s life and beliefs are well-suited for the Congress, which is aimed at engaging Africa’s youth in general, especially Ghanaian youth, to build up moral character.
It is also to explore the opportunities that exist on the continent, and help disabuse their minds about supposed greener pastures elsewhere which leads to illegal migration and avoidable deaths.
“He is a father of many. It means he takes care of many many people, whether young or old. He is one person who believes in Ghana, and believes that Ghana can make it,” he added.
On his part, Vice President Bawumia urged the youth delegates to develop a can-do attitude and take advantage of the many opportunities for training and skill acquisition to position themselves for the possibilities that exist in the fourth industrial revolution.
“To the youth that are here today and all Ghanaian youth, I would encourage you to be open-minded to see the numerous opportunities in this era of globalization in a digitized environment. Only diligent and hardworking youth would be rewarded in this new global economy. Remember, the Sky is no longer your limit, it is now your starting point,” he said.
