Cape Coast tops child prostitution in Ghana – Survey

Cape Coast, the Central Regional Capital has
been identified as leading in Child prostitution
in Ghana in a current survey, the Regional
Minister, Mr. Aquinas Tawiah Quansah has
disclosed.

According to him, the United Nations
Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has the problem
captured in its report and was planning to
collaborate with Planned Parenthood
Association of Ghana (PPAG) in a bid to
mitigate the situation.

Through the UNICEF/PPAG collaboration,
Child prostitutes in the metropolis would be
mobilised and given some vocational training
to help them generate income since poverty
could be the topmost factor for engaging in
such activity.

This comes three months after the minister
had revealed that Child prostitution was
booming in the metropolis.

Mr. Quansah was speaking as a guest of
honour at the official opening of the 15th
Biennial Delegates’ conference of the Cape
Coast Diocese of the Association of Methodist
Church Choirs Ghana (GHAMECC) at Elmina
over the weekend.

The Four day conference is on the theme
“Witnessing to Christ, Holistic Spirituality and
Service for Current and Succeeding
Generation”.

He recounted that on several occasions he
had seen girls about 12 years of age, loitering
about at London Bridge, a suburb in the
metropolis, at about 0200hrs and advised
parents to stop shirking their responsibilities
and keep a closer eye on their children.
He also appealed to the Methodist Church to
think of ways, it could help to keep the
children out of such activities.

Mr. Quansah, commended choristers for their
crucial roles in the church, particularly,
evangelism and urged them not to relent in
their service to God
Preaching on the theme, Right Reverend
Ebenezer Kwamina Abaka- Wilson, Bishop
of the Cape Coast Diocese of the Methodist
Church, noted that, the core mandate of
Christians was to win souls for the Kingdom of
God.

This, he said could be done through action,
words and entirety of one’s life, indicating
that, the followers of Christ in Antioch, were
named Christians by non-followers of Christ
because their lives reflected Christ’s
personality.

He stressed the need for Christians to develop
a stronger relationship with God, highlighting
the need for every Christian to possess a set
of tools of spirituality, which comprised
stronger prayer life, regular bible study,
compliance with the word of God and act of
mercy.

He commended Choristers for their immense
service to the church and reminded them that
they had been called by God, like Angels in
Heaven, to minister in songs and urged them
to executive their mandated roles seriously
and with discipline.
