Reverend Professor Frimpong-Manso, the General Superintendent of Assemblies of God Church, Ghana, has commended the Electoral Commission (EC) for their work so far ahead of the December polls.
“Even though some activities of the commission have been fraught with challenges, largely, the independent electoral body is doing very well to ensure free, fair, credible, peaceful and transparent elections,” he noted.
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso commended the EC at the sidelines of the Annual Pastors Credence meeting of the Assemblies of God Church held in Koforidua, the Eastern Regional Capital.
He indicated that the December polls would go well to produce a credible winner and peaceful elections because the EC was doing well and needed prayers, encouragement, support and assistance of the citizenry to succeed.
“I think the EC is doing very well and I have full trust in them, for any human institution there may be few challenges and problems here and there but the EC chairperson and her team has done very well, we need to pray for them, we need to support them and we need to encourage them to deliver so Ghana will stay intact and peaceful before, during and after the elections,” Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso stressed.
He urged the citizenry to give off their best to ensure that the elections were free, fair, credible, transparent and peaceful.
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso, who is also Board Chairman of National Commission of Small Arms and Light Weapons (NCSALW) called on the Police to up their game to deal with increasing insecurity in the country saying “the security people are doing very well but we need more from them, we want peace and security. So many people are not happy especially with the Western Togoland secessionist group and recent killings like the MP who was killed in the Central Region by armed robbers and the discovery of arms and ammunition.
“Illegal importation of arms into the country calls for alarm, we’re pleading with security agencies to be up and doing to make sure Ghanaians are safe, secured and protected,” he said but appealed to the police to intensify support and assistance to Commission.
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso, who is also the current President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), advised the clergy and traditional authorities to desist from openly endorsing political parties and leaders to help ensure political cohesion and national unity. -Starr FM
