Ghanaians have been admonished to shun political parties that engage in activities that can negatively affect the conduct of the 2016 polls.
According to the General Overseer of the Maranatha Power Ministries, Bishop Francis Afotey Odai, that would help in sanitising the political atmosphere as the nation prepares for the polls.
Bishop Odai made these observations at the 20th anniversary celebration of the church at Nungua Addogono, on the theme: “Financing the Kingdom Business”.
He said “It’s my prayer that politicians who don’t preach and act peacefully lose massively to those who conduct themselves peacefully in the up-coming elections.”
Bishop Odai urged Ghanaians to support the Electoral Commission to carry out peaceful elections.
He indicated that “Though Maranatha over the years had built boreholes, schools and health facilities in deprived areas, extra push is needed from well meaning Ghanaians to meet this noble task in other communities”.
Bishop Odai noted that though churches in the country were doing their best in caring for the poor, philanthropists should help the government in alleviating poverty in the country.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary aspirant for Krowor constituency, Agnes Naa Momo Lartey, advised Christians to support development in the country.
“We have to let our utterances and gestures to be seasoned with peaceful deeds as we share thoughts and ideas on national issues,” she added.
Ms. Lartey said “We must stay united and remain focused in promoting the developmental agenda of the government in the Krowor Constituency”.
She commended the Maranatha Ministries for releasing land for the construction of an educational office complex for the Ledzokuku Krowor Municipality.
