Catholic Bishop begs Akufo-Addo to help the needy

Deputy Chief of Staff, Samuel Abdulai Jinapor at the weekend left worshippers at the St. Anne’s Catholic Cathedral in Damongo in shock when he revealed how the Bishop of the area, literally went on his knees before him to convey a message to the President to help the poor.

Mr Jinapor who was the Special Guest of Honour representing the President at the 25th Priestly Jubilee of the Most Reverend .Peter Paul Yekezuame Anghyiere who doubles as the Chairman of the Prison’s Council, revealed how the Man of God detained him for several hours in his home to convey the message to the number one gentleman of the state.

According to him, he was emotionally touched by the action of the Catholic Bishop he has had a couple of interactions with in time past.

“….I have not known bishop for so long but I have had a few encounters with him. The first one struck me very strongly. I visited Damongo and said I will pass through his residence to pay homage to him. A visit that I envisaged to last for five minutes lasted for two hours. Bishop started with a certain village somewhere where Catholics could not worship freely and went to education and from education he went to health and from health he went to women empowerment. I kept seated there ……I was running late but he kept going on and on and on. He almost went down on his knees and said honourable, tell the president, do something for the poor. Do something for the people. I could see genuineness and honesty in his eyes…This is the man we celebrate”, he revealed.

He congratulated the bishop on behalf of the president and donated GH¢10,000 from the presidency to support the educational fund setup by the bishop.

The Metropolitan archbishop of Tamale Diocese and the president of Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference, Most Rev.Philip Naameh used the occasion to thank the Deputy Chief of Staff for his message from the president and the donation.
