“We should be reminded that the responsibility of fatherhood and male parenting are divine and ordained by God. Not only has God given men the incredible privilege of imitating him as a father. He has also placed upon the shoulders of Fathers an incredible responsibility. As our society has chosen this day to celebrate fathers, it is appropriate to remind fathers of their God-given responsibilities,” a Keynote address delivered by COP. Mr. Samuel Monney DG-Technical on behalf of the IGP Mr James Oppong.
