His Royal Majesty, Buipewura Jinapor II Abdulai has urged the Catholic Church to venture into Agriculture in the savannah region.
The leader of Buipe traditional area commended the Catholic church for the numerous interventions and successes chalked in the areas of education and health in the savannah region.
Buipewura Jinapor II further explained that, He equates peace with education and agriculture and that education has been one of the best sectors of the Catholic Church, especially in the Northern parts of Ghana and that, it’s about time the church ventures into agriculture to help the less privileged in the region who are mostly peasant farmers.
The vice president of the Gonja Traditional Council added that, the catholic church has established a lot of schools around the region and must be recommended for such.
Buipewura Jinapor II made the appeal when the apostolic Nuncio to Ghana, H. E. Most Rev Henryk Mieczyslaw Jagodzinski and the Bishop of the Damongo Dioceses, Most Rev. Peter Paul Angkyier paid a courtesy call on him at his Royal Palace at Buipe in the central Gonja District of the Savannah region on Sunday, 22nd August, 2021.
Buipewura Jinapor II in an appeal said “we pray to your Excellency to allow the Catholic church consider agriculture as part of their already existing health and education systems because a hungry man is an angry man. This region has the land, infact the largest land per tribe in the country and less populated with virgin lands available with streams ready for irrigation. I am sure my appeal would go down well into the heart of Ambassador Henryk”, he added.
H.E. Most Rev. Henryk Mieczyslaw Jagodzinski together with Most Rev. Peter Paulaul Angkyier and scores of priest offered prayers of peace for Savannah region and the entire Gonjaland upon the request of Buipewura Jinapor II Abdulai.
