THE Volta Regional Minister, Madam Helen Adjoa Ntoso has urged women to rise up and form a strong front to curb the soaring moral decadence among the youth.
“We have reached a stage in our country where teenagers can go on air and have a fields-day insulting their parents; other adults and people in responsible positions with outright impunity, and with that trend I do not know where this country is heading towards” she stated.
Madam Ntoso was speaking at the second national conference and rally of the Women’s Bible Class of the Global Evangelical Church on
the theme: “Arise and let your light bring others to the Kingdom,” at Sogakope on Friday.
She said that women were a formidable force to influence the dynamics of the country, impart discipline into the youth and uphold positive human values of society.
“Women have done so much for the country and they still have more to offer, so far as decorum is concerned”, the Regional Minister said.
Madam Ntoso said that the exposure of the youth to the social media made it crucial for parents to constantly and vigorously monitor their children, and watch out for possible behavioural changes in them, to keep them on the right path.
She commended the Women’s Bible Class for its bold step to start an old people’s recreational centre at Sogakope, saying that service to mankind was service to God.
Mrs. Akpene Dordor, National Leader of the Women’s Bible Class, said that respect for those in authority was vital to peace and development.
She said that the Bible Class condemned insults and lies against the President and those in authority, by a section of the public on social media.
“It is sad that our youth take more interest in reading such things on the social media instead of sticking to their books or visiting libraries”.
