The Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) of the Agormanya Area of The Church of Pentecost has held a Road Safety Campaign at the Kpong Lorry Station in the Eastern Region as part of the activities marking the 2022 PEMEM week-long celebration.
Speaking at the event, the Agormanya Area PEMEM Leader, Pastor Joseph Kwadwo Tawiah, stated: “As citizens whatever we do in our lives must be done to the glory of God. Hence, the road safety campaign is an activity to glorify God.”
Reading 1 Corinthians 10:31, Pastor Tawiah iterated that drivers and riders are key persons when considering road safety issues, hence the need to engage and educate all road users to be disciplined and safety conscious.
Pastor Tawiah advised drivers to always put on their seat belts whilst driving.
The Chairman of the Kpong Branch of Co-operative Drivers Union, Mr. Paul Kantey, commended The Church of Pentecost for organising the timely campaign. He entreated other churches to emulate the example.
The Akuse Police Commander, Chief Inspector Emmanuel Agbefe, noted that good drivers are those who always return safely from their trips.
Taking the drivers through basic road safety tips, Elder Samuel Teye (Kpong District PEMEM Leader), asked drivers to avoid drinking alcohol, ensure regular and proper vehicle maintenance, maintain concentration when driving, and comply to speed limits and other rules of the road.
In attendance were Chief Inspector Agbemabiese Joseph of Kpong Police Station, Pastor Samuel Dadzie, Pastor Samuel Malack Arthur, and Elder Felix Akonnor (Agormanya Area PEMEM Secretary).
The PEMEM Directorate of The Church of Pentecost led by Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh launched the National Safety Campaign in 2021.
