He said it is worrying that the "get rich quick" syndrome is
increasing the spate of social vices and attributed it to "negative
impartation" of Satan, who is the enemy.
Speaking at a youth empowerment programme for some senior high school
students in Kumasi, he said this is the time for the youth to betold
of the fruits of hard work, honesty and integrity in life.
The programme was organised by Creating Awareness Now Foundation
(CANF), a youth training and empowerment organisation in Kumasi, on
the theme: "Empowerment through Grace to Glory."
Mr Kenya, told the youth that the enemy has the capacity to blindfold
and corrupt the minds ofmany from seeing and appreciating reality.
"Many have been blinded by the enemy so they refuse to patronisewhat
is right and would rather support things which will promote the work
of the enemy rather than God. People now support the negative, but it
doesn't make it right," he said.
He also advised the youth to guard with care the talents that God has
entrusted to them, and to take Jesus seriously together with the
empowerment advices, since that is the surest way to their success.
The President of CANF, Mr Collins Acheampong said the programme was
organised in line with the Foundation's aim of training and empowering
the youth to be resourceful and proactive citizens.
He added that the Foundation, which has been operating for two years,
is committed of making the youth realize their full potentials in
order for them to forgo social vices by interacting with role models
to learn from their achievements.
Mr Acheampong said that more of such programmes targeting at finalyear
students of the second cycle institutions would be organised annually
to imbibe good moral values in the youth.
