Christian Chiefs in the North of Ghana have been urged to use their influence to promote peace in that part of the Country. The advice came when a retired Rev. Dr. Edward Adams Haruna of the Presbyterian Church preached the sermon during a service to climax the Annual Northern Christian Chiefs Conference at Carpenter in the Bole Bamboi District of the Savannah Region.
The Northern Ghana Christian Chiefs Conference is organised annually by the Northern Ghana Christian Chiefs Association. It serves as a forum for the Christian Chiefs to brainstorm on Peace Building and Conflict Resolution strategies and other matters bordering on the welfare and development of their people.
It Currently has 300 members and Naaba Moses Abaare Apie, a Divisional Chief of the Bawku Traditional Council, is the President.
This year’s week-long Conference was very well attended by Christian Chiefs from all the five Regions of Northern Ghana as well the Bono East Region. Dr. David Mensah, who is the Gyaasehene of the Mo Traditional Area under the stool name Naa Tibarakala is the Founder of the Northern Christians Chiefs Association.
Preaching the sermon at a Service to climax the Conference, Rev Dr. Edward Adams Haruna of the Presbyterian Church said, like salt, they must be able to positively influence the whole society.
