Anglican Bishop: Failure in corruption fight affecting devt

Right Reverend Felix Odei Annacy, the Anglican Bishop of the Koforidua Diocese in the Eastern Region, has cautioned that the nation’s failure in the fight against corruption is affecting the growth and development of the country.

“Corruption is just the case of stealing from the poor and it is an undeniable truth that indiscipline is the root cause of corruption in the country, we have Christians involved in these corrupt acts every day, but if we will be disciplined from our homes as we said charity begins at home, our discipline will be backed by the good morals and values that the Bible preaches,” he assured.

Speaking at the first session of the 13th Synod of the Koforidua Anglican Diocese at Kwabeng in the Atiwa District of the Eastern Region, Rt Rev Annacy commended investigative journalists for exposing corruption.

 “I commend journalists who have still not bowed to our system and are continuously exposing indiscipline and corrupt people who give us a lot of hope to support and assist them since deafening silence in tackling the canker is denting the country’s image globally.

“Corruption is one of the most destructive impediments to our socio-economic growth and development as a country, to be very honest with you, my dear friends, we are not in the times where we see corruption as a matter of exception anymore, and this affirms the rots exposed by investigative journalists including Anas Aremeyaw Anas,” Rt Rev Annacy riposted. -adomonline.com
