An Anglican priest at Nkoranza has observed that humility, respect and obedience were significant virtues| for long life. Venerable Emmanuel Attah Mensa, Minister in-charge of the Nkoranza Saint Banarbas Anglican Church, therefore, emphasized the need for the youth to respect their parents and elders in society, so that they would receive blessings from God.
Ven Mensah made the observation at Nkoranza at the weekend during the centenary birthday anniversary of a member of the church, Madam Pauline Akua Num.
He said Madam Num had lived for such period because she was humble and therefore urged others in the community to emulate her. Madam Stella Amoatemaa, Nkoranza Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), expressed regret about the increasing death rate of the youth below 30 years nowadays.
She said Madam Num was 100 years, but was still strong to move about to places, noting that it was a divine blessing. Madam Amoatemaa, therefore, advised the youth to lead upright lives and shun social vices so that God would bless them with long life and prosperity.
Madam Num recounted her biography with gratefulness to God, saying that almost all her age group and play mates had passed on.
