The Anglican Bishop of Koforidua, the Right Reverend Francis Benjamin Quashie, has asked voters to be guided by their conscience in the choice they make at the December polls.
He said it was important for the electorate to critically examine the campaign message of the various political parties to enable them to make the right choices.
They should convince themselves that leaders that they campaign for are selfless, competent and genuinely committed to the promotion of the socio-economic progress of the country, the clergyman said at the 12th diocesan synod of the church in Koforidua, which was on the theme “Servant leaders: a key ingredient of transformational leadership.”
Bishop Quashie said Ghanaians should avoid the mistake of voting for self-seeking persons who are interested only in themselves, their cronies and party members.
He noted that the nation had been blessed with enormous resources and said what was preventing the people from enjoying optimal benefits from these resources was bad leadership, the mistake of making it easy for the wrong people to find themselves into leadership positions.
Ms. Mavis Ama Frimpong, Eastern Regional Minister, who opened the conference, appealed to the church to promote peace ahead of the 2016 elections.
She commended the Anglican Church for its contribution to the development of the country, and asked that its strong partnership with the state to bring progress to the people was sustained.
