Minister calls on religious bodies to stop separating rich from poor

Accra, May 19, Ghanadot/GNA – Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, Minster of Youth and Sports, has called on religious leaders to put a stop to social segregation during socio-religious gatherings.

“These days it is common to have churches and religious organizations allocating seats to people according their social status.

“Much emphasis is now laid on wealth during religious gatherings instead of equality and these must stop”. The Minister stated.

Alhaji Muntaka, who was speaking at the Meet-The-Press series in Accra, said the situation has rather contributed to moral decadence, adding that the youth of today placed much premium on wealth instead of morality.

He said it was time for religious leaders to help the Government to fight the high rate of immorality in the society.

According to the Minister, the youth has resorted to crude ways of making money such as internet fraud known as ‘Sakawa’ because society has placed much premium on wealth.

Alhaji Muntaka said the elderly must also contribute towards the fight against cyber fraud and other criminal activities in the country by leading exemplary lives.

On Sports, he indicated that the Ministry would soon commence a talent identification exercise for all the sporting disciplines.

This, he said would help to identify people with sporting talents at tender ages for their proper grooming towards stardom.
