Apostle Dr Stephen Amoani, Chairman of the Christ Apostolic Church International, has urged Ghanaians to be more proactive in local governance, be law abiding and meet their social responsibilities toward nation building.

He said for every nation to thrive sustainably, it must judiciously utilise its people as the human resource, in addition to its financial and material resources.

“Of these three, the human resource is the biggest asset, therefore, the contributions of responsible men and women of Ghana would definitely propel national prosperity,” the Chairman said, and urged Ghanaians to rally behind the government.

Apostle Amoani was speaking to the media during the CACI’s Northern Sector Prophetic Convention, in Kumasi, at the weekend.

The seven-day prayer meeting was on the theme: ‘Experiencing the fullness of God’, and was attended by members from the Ashanti, part of Western, Brong-Ahafo, Northern, Upper East and Upper Western regions.

He stated: “We should, therefore, not relent, but put in our various contributions in diverse ways at all levels of governance.”

Apostle Amoani urged Ghanaians not to be bystanders only to criticise and expect the government to do everything.

He said it was unhelpful that only a small segment of the population paid their taxes, which was the source for financing social amenities and development projects.

“Though we expect the best of social amenities in our communities, and thus blame the authorities for the lack or the inadequacy of these, we often lose sight of the fact that without the necessary tax revenue, it would be challenging to provide them,” he indicated.

Apostle Amoani also urged Ghanaians to support the vision to build a National Cathedral project because it formed part of infrastructure for national development and God’s plan for the nation.

“It is befitting to have a national infrastructure where we honour our God, who has given us all the resources to build our nation as we learn from King David and Solomon who mobilised vast resources to build a temple to show gratitude to the Lord,” he explained.

Apostle Amoani said the significance of the National Cathedral is the foundation on which God will build and bless the nation, and urged President Nana Akufo-Addo not to relent and stay focused on the project as he needed God’s greater grace to lead the nation.

He said God-centredness was the way of a people who would every now and then congregate to seek the face of their maker, and this practice will be enhanced when the project is successfully completed.

He, therefore, appealed to those who supported the vision to generously donate in cash and in kind as David and his people did to build the national edifice to worship and honour God.

Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, Deputy Minister of Education, who addressed the convention, encouraged the worshippers to embrace the double track system of the Free SHS Programme to ensure the maximum benefit for the nation.

He said it was the aim of the government that virtually all the children of Ghana who qualify to have access to higher education will get the opportunity so that together they could all contribute to national development.

Other speakers included Nana Antwi Bosiako, the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Kumasi, who joined the congregation and the Executive Council members to pray for the nation and the leadership.

The meeting is one of the prayer festivals of the church, during which it thanks God for His benevolence, providence and protection and also seeks his face for blessings in the future.
