The President of All Youth Foundation of Africa(AYOF), Mr. Anthony Young Tetteh-Blefono, has urged members of his organization and the entire public to recognize the reason behind the Christmas season and celebrate accordingly.
According to him, “as the world celebrates this season, there is the need to be conscious of our actions both in public and privately. Let’s not sacrifice the Christmas celebrations on the altar of immortality. We must know the reason for this season and celebrate as such.”
He noted that “as the year gradually crawls to an end, we have to leave behind every negativity that did not impact our lives to live to our full potentials and embrace whatever will help us live better lives and also impact our societies to champion the wellbeing of humanity.”
In his Christmas message, Mr. Tetteh-Blefono urged the general public, especially African youths to be careful in order not to endanger their lives and that of others all in the name of merry making.
“We must do everything possible to make our roads safer to preserve each other’s life,” he added.
“We must not lose sight on the fact that we are not living in normal times. HIV/AIDS, COVID-19 and it’s new variants still pose a serious threat to us all and as such, we must observe all protocols to stay safe,” he stated.
