On September 28, 2004 GNA reported, "Mr. Agyeman Manu, a Deputy Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, has said no human society could enjoy sustainable development without taking account of spiritual principles such as truthfulness, honesty, love, equity and justice. He said the world had reached a stage where only gross domestic product, inflation, macro and micro economic indices were all measured to determine material progress with little or no reference to spiritual and moral principles. Mr. Manu said this when he launched the 50th anniversary celebration of the Bahai Faith in Ghana... The three-day celebration has a theme ''Spiritual Solutions For Social and Economic Problems' and has brought together followers of Baha'ullah, the founder of the faith, from all parts of the country. Topics to be discussed include essence of spiritual prosperity, Spiritual Pre-Requisites for reconciliation and Unity in diversity; a key to world peace would be discussed."
