‘Save our younger ones,’ prisons inmates appeal

Accra, June 30, GNA
-Inmates of the Ho Central Prisons, have appealed to parents to take extra care
of their younger brothers and sisters back at home and to protect them so that
they would not find themselves at the wrong side of the law.

Sampson Tay, an
inmate, who made the appeal on behalf of his 484 colleagues serving various
terms for different offences said, most of them ended up at the prisons due to
lack of parental care, guidance and control.

He, therefore,
called on parents, especially mothers as well as churches to provide the needed
support for the young ones in the society so they would grow to become useful
adults.

He said: “Most of us
have regretted our actions, which led us here but it is too late for us.”

These came to light
when the Pastors and Spouses Association of the Global Evangelical Church
donated assorted items worth about GH¢ 5,000.00 to the Prisons as part of
activities to mark their retreat in Ho.

The items included
bags of rice, maize, beans, gari, salt, tinned tomatoes, tinned fish, and
cooking oil, cartons of soap, sanitary pads and drinks.

Mrs Enyonam
Ganyo-Tefe, the Second Vice President of the Association, who led the
delegation in an exhortation to the inmates, told the inmates never to give up
on themselves as God did not give up on them.

She said Apostle
Paul in the Bible was in prison when he wrote several of his epistles to some
churches, which have now become part of the New Testament in the Bible which we
use today.

She urged the
inmates to leverage on all the opportunities that the prisons offered in order
to unleash the numerous potentials that God had deposited in them.

Mrs Ganyo Tefe said just
as Joseph in the Bible came out from prison to become a prime minister, there
was hope for them if they gave their lives to Jesus Christ and repented from
their sins.

 Chief Superintendent Wilson Sallah, second in
command of the facility, who received the items on behalf of the Service,
registered their appreciation to the Association for the depth of love
exhibited.
