The Anointed Seed International Church (ASIC), a Christian religious organization based in Agona Swedru in the Central Region has said it intends to embark on a massive anti-Sakawa educational campaign to educate youth in the region, especially those in Agona Swedru and its surrounding areas of the consequences of Sakawa and the need to put a stop to the practice.
Agona Swedru is well noted for the practice of Sakawa which is now common among the youth, and as part of effort to fight the menace, ASIC is organizing a 14-Day National Conference on the theme: ?The Generous Soul Will Be Made Rich,? beginning from August19th to September 1st.
According to the Founder and Leader of the church, Rev, Seth Assan, some high profile men of God have been invited to address the conference which is expected to be attended by over five hundred people drawn from all walks of life.
They are Rev. A.S.P. Emmanuel Coffie of the Unique Fire Life Chapel in Agona Swedru, Rev. Collins Asare of the Pentecostal Love Bible Believers Church also in Agona Swedru and Rev. Richard Ekow Amoah of the Royal Chapel International in Accra.
According to Rev. Assan, the problem of Sakawa has now graduated from the practice of internet fraud to ritual sacrifices where the youth are alleged to be using blood to acquire wealth.
He said the practice has reached an alarming rate that it requires a concerted effort by all to fight it as it has now attracted the attention of young people including students.
The Conference also coincides with a Fund Raising Ceremony of the church for refurbishment of its auditorium.
Meanwhile the Founder of the church, Rev. Assan has assured Ghanaians to remain calm after the verdict of the Supreme Court as the final outcome will instead unite the nation rather than divide it as some people perceive.
