Hon. Adwoa Safo, Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya and Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, has also expressed her thoughts on the Kasoa killings involving two adolescents and a fetish priest.
On Saturday, April 3, 2021, two teenagers from Kasoa, Felix Nyarko and Nicholas Kini, were arrested for allegedly killing Ishmael Mensah, a 10-year-old child, for money rituals.
After giving her condolences to the family of 10-year-old Ishmael Mensah Abdallah, Hon. Adwoa Safo said that it is shocking that such a heinous crime was carried out by teenagers.
Hon. Sarah Adwoa Safo, in a tweet, urged all Ghanaian parents to tell their children that hard work pays off.
“This is unfortunately indicative of the reality and times we live in, where a section of our youth would go to every extent to live ostentatious lives without putting in any commensurate hard work and effort,” the Gender Minister said.
“This disturbing act should be a wake-up call to all Ghanaians, that as a country, we will teach our children that there is dignity in hard work and with it comes the benefits thereof.”
“We seem to have pushed aside the values and attributes of hard work, honesty and service to each other which are the building blocks of every fair and just society.”
