The National Women Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Ms. Kate Gyamfua has advised Ghanaians to stay away from all activities that can lead to injuries this Easter period.
According to the NPP women organiser, Christ ascended to the cross for a reason and that reason should guide the actions of those who will be celebrating the death of the Messiah.
In a statement copied to the Evening Mail, Ms. Gyamfua said “Easter Celebration will have no meaning if we end the celebration with sicknesses, injuries or death.”
Ms. Gyamfua used the opportunity to plead with the well to do to remember the less privileged in this festive season.
Below is the statement from Ms. Kate Gyamfua
On Easter we celebrate love,
love coming down from heaven,
love blanketing the earth
in a transforming embrace;
unique and infinite love,
giving more than we can imagine
for us, to cleanse our sins.
As Jesus Christ mounts the cross today, I join many Christians around the world to wish all a fruitful Easter.
I urge all of us to make the reason why the Messiah ascended the cross has an impact on our lives.
I use this occasion to plead with all and sundry to extend helping hands to those that for some reasons cannot enjoy this day. I know that when special people touch our lives, then suddenly we see how beautiful and wonderful our world can really be.
The basis of life is people and how they relate to us. Our success, fulfillment and happiness depend upon our ability to relate effectively to others.
It is therefore for this reason why I am calling on all to let somebody who could not have laughed for some reason laugh today.
I also use this opportunity to plead with all to be extra careful in our happy mood.
Our Easter Celebration will have no meaning if we end the celebration with sicknesses, injuries or death.
Let us be moderate in happy mood and let the meaning behind the celebration impact on our lives.
Happy Easter to the president and his family, the vice president and his family, all women and men as well and every single Ghanaian.
May the reason for the season be a blessing to us all.
