The Methodist Bishop of the Sunyani Diocese, Right Reverend Asare Bediako, has expressed serious reservations about the emergence of paramilitary groupings within the body politics of Ghana, noting that the country was treading on a dangerous path.

He noted that Ghana’s security was under threat if such groupings were allowed to be formed alongside the mainstream state security.

The bishop was speaking in an interview with the media on the sidelines of a dedication service of the Calvary Methodist Church at Estates, a suburb in Sunyani.

Rev. Asare Bediako called for the cessation of hostilities and tension among the political parties ahead of the 2016 general elections, urging the leadership of the political parties to uphold the tenets of democracy, in accordance with the 1992 Constitution.

Preaching the sermon earlier, Rev. Bediako appealed to leaders of the various societies within the church and others to rededicate themselves to work and win souls for Christ.
