Pentecostal and Charismatic Council call for truce over missing State vehicles

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council has expressed concern about ongoing accusations between officials of the current government and those of the previous government over missing state vehicles and unlawful seizures.

It, therefore, called for a truce and urged both sides to let sanity prevail and allow the relevant state institutions to address the issues in an orderly manner.

The Council made the appeal in a joint communiqué issued at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) Annual National Retreat at Peduase, a copy of which was made available to the media.

The NEC was worried that the setting up of the Office of the Administrator General and the coming into being of the Transition Act had not put to rest the unending phenomenon of transitional excesses.

“We are deeply concerned and unhappy about the ongoing accusations and counter-accusations between officials of the current government and those of the previous government over the whereabout of state vehicles and other assets, unlawful seizures etc. Our expectation was that the setting up of the Administrator General and the coming into being of the Transition Act would have put to rest this unending phenomenon of transitional excesses”.

“We strongly urge all sides to call a truce, let sanity prevail and allow the relevant state institutions to address these in an orderly manner,” it added.

The NEC welcomed the decision of the Speaker and leadership of Parliament for setting up the Five Member Parliamentary Committee to investigate the bribery allegations against members of the Appointment.

 

While deeply concerned about the alleged incidence, the Pentecostal and Charismatic Council urged that the right steps be taken to address the concerns of Ghanaians.

It encouraged the Committee members to approach their work with utmost diligence, transparency and honesty.

Again, the Council commended three current and previous ministers of state – Mrs. Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Minister of Foreign Affairs for hosting her immediate predecessor, Ms. Hannah Serwaa Tetteh and her deputy Mr. Emmanuel Bombade and Mrs. Gloria Akuffo and her predecessor Marrieta Brew Appiah-Opong for their display of maturity and statesmanship at the ongoing maritime dispute between Ghana and Ivory Coast at the International Law of the Sea Tribunal (ITLOS) in Germany.

“We believe that these positive attributes demonstrated by these illustrious daughters of our land must not be swept under the carpet but must be highlighted and shared so as to serve as positive examples to all others”.

The NEC urged Ghanaians irrespective of their political affiliations to support the government to deliver on its mandate.

 

The Pentecostal and Charismatic Council reaffirmed its commitment to working with other Church Councils to deal with the proliferation of false prophets.

“In as much as the Council believes strongly in the biblical doctrines of prophecies and miracles as signs of the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives as Christians and the Church, the wanton abuse and manipulation of the sound doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ by these charlatans for their egocentric interests ought to be exposed and condemned by the majority and genuine Christians,” it said.
