Dr Lawrence Tetteh, founder of UK-based World Miracle Outreach, has tasked Ghanaians to eschew corruption to enable institutions to work and contribute to ensure national development.

He noted that greed is the basis of corruption and urged the citizenry to put the interest of the country above partisan politics.

The International preacher made the suggestion at a launch of a book titled ‘The dream of a new Ghana, reality or myth’ in Accra.

The 155-page book was aimed at revealing the aspirations and beliefs of the fathers in choosing the name Ghana in their quest for self-governance.

“We should stop the rancor, insults, vilification and work harder to move the nation forward,”Dr Tetteh stressed.

Wading into the presidential term debate, the International preacher advocated a six -year term for presidents serving under constitutional democracy.

Dr Tetteh’s proposal was based on his conviction that the status quo is not helpful for Ghana’s development.

According to him, the constraints of leading a developing nation such as Ghana required more than four years to make any meaningful impact in terms of development.

Six-year term, Dr Tetteh explained, would allow for a greater chance of achieving political strides and development.

He indicated that the six-year period was most ideal for Ghana as a country, judging from the fact that “we virtually spend the first six months of being in office to set up government, put institutions in place and appointments among others.

“Six months to elections is virtually dedicated to campaign activities here and there, so, one would have thought that if we had six years, the government will have five years to practise governance,” Dr Tetteh noted.

The author of the book, Apostle Piesie Okyere Darko, said the book was a must read one for every individual irrespective of religious background.

According to him, the book discusses the similarities that bind ancient Ghana and modern Ghana together.

“Today, Ghana is faced with alarming challenges in its economy, leadership, education and society and this book inspires hope and reveals the countless opportunities the nation stands to benefit from” he noted.
