The president of the Apostolic Church, Ghana, Apostle Peter Okoe Mankralo, has urged political leaders to desist from indecent language, to avoid tension among the electorates during and after the 2016 Election.
He said, inflammatory pronouncements could affect the peace and harmony of the country, and appealed to the people to jealously guard the country’s peace.
According to him, leadership was based on integrity, honesty and accountability, saying that Ghana needed credible politicians.
Apostle Mankralo was speaking at the first National Men’s Convention 2016, organised by the church, at Frafraha near Dodowa, in the Greater Accra Region, on Sunday.
The convention ended with the inauguration of national executives of the men’s council of the church.
They are Apostle E.K. Ackah, National Men’s Superintendent, elder Desmond Sackey, National Mens leader, elder Divine Kanyagui, Secretary, elder Timothy Ofori, Organiser, elder Anderson Sam, Financial Secretary, Joseph Bonney, Counsellor, and elder Samuel Aboagye, Prayer Co-ordinator.
Apostle Mankralo reminded Ghanaians that they were one people, one nation and with one destiny, and appealed to the youth to contribute to the development of the country.
Apostle Mankralo said the convention aimed at an uplifting the spirit of members to help them to propagate the gospel to win more souls for Christ.
He said, there was the need for the church to generate funds for more infrastructural development.
Apostle Mankralo cautioned “fake pastors” to avoid materialism, and asked Christians to eschew selfishness and jealously and embrace peace and love.
