Minister Urges Christian Pilgrims To Abide By The Rules

10:18:00 AM

Mr Samuel Kofi Dzamesi, the Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs on Friday urged the second batch of Christians embarking on pilgrimage to holy sites of Israel to follow the rules at the various points.

The Minister said abiding by the rules would boost the confidence of both the Ghanaian and Israeli governments to continuously create the opportunity for others to also visit the holy sites to build up their faith.

Dont do anything that will jeopardise the programme Let us go as pilgrims and come as pilgrims, Mr Dzamesi stated during the pre-departure briefing at the Social Aviation Centre in Accra, where pilgrims wait before proceeding to the Kotoka International Airport for departure.

Mr Dzamesi said government was committed to ensuring that at least all Christians visit the holy sites of Israel to enhance their spiritual lives and also pray for the nations progress.

He urged the 44 pilgrims to continuously pray for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the nation as a whole, especially as they walk in the path of the Lord Jesus Christ in Jerusalem.

The Minister said the future of the initiative was very bright as the Ministry looked forward to increasing the number of pilgrims to 1,000 pilgrims next year as against 215 pilgrims this year and 50 last year.
