The Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, Most Reverend Charles
Palmer-Buckle on Saturday called on Ghanaians to be fair, just and
honest in all their endeavours.
Most Rev Palmer-Buckle said many
Ghanaians were corrupt and cheated one another in diverse ways as their
sole motivation when dealing with others was to maximise profits to the
detriment of others.
He was delivering the sermon at
Prampram to bless the St John the Baptist Catholic Church House which
is under construction at Prampram.
The building is being
constructed by members of the St Joseph the Worker Catholic Church of
Tema Community eight, as a present to the Prampram Catholic community
in commemoration of its 40th anniversary.
Palmer-Buckle noted that the courts should not be the only place where
justice could be obtained, adding that the individual’s honesty should
also benefit those in need.
He said the notion that only politicians, the police, accountants and others in high positions were corrupt was wrong.
Rev Palmer-Buckle commended the St Joseph the Worker Catholic Church
for sharing its resources with the Prampram community and called on
others to emulate them.
Prior to the mass, the Metropolitan
Archbishop inspected a mission house under construction at the St
Dominic Catholic Church at Dawhenya.
