The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has called on Ghanaians to end the antagonistic politics being practiced in the country which according to him is derailing the development of the country.
According Apostle Nyamekye, partisan politics has polarised the nation as people attack and insult their perceived political opponents, despite the fact that they are all Ghanaians.
He singled out political party fanatics, popularly called ‘Serial Callers’ who call into radio stations to insult their opponents to desist from the practice.
The Chairman of the Church expressed these sentiments when he addressed Elders of the Church from Sefwi Bekwai, Sefwi Wiawso, Essam-Debiso, and Asankrangwa all in the Western-North region on Thursday, 11 April 2019, as part of his working visit to the region.
Apostle Nyamekye noted that some Christians have stopped praying for the prosperity of the nation just because they are politically divided. He noted that the divisive politics has entered into the church as people sit in the same church but do not see eye-to-eye with their fellow Christian because of partisan politics.
As part of the possessing the nations agenda of The Church of Pentecost by transforming every sphere of society with godly values and principles, the Chairman challenged officers and members of the Church to show the way by engaging in decent politics devoid of insults and animosity.
He called on them to exhibit a high level of patriotism by praying for the welfare of the country every time they meet as a church. He also urged them to be good citizens by paying their taxes, eschewing bribery and corruption and other vices that do not promote the development of the nation.
Apostle Nyamekye further charged officers and members of the Church to showcase the Christ in them at their workplaces so as to transform the nation.
