PPresident of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Reverend Prof Paul Frimpong-Manso, has urged government to prosecute anyone who will be implicated in the latest Tiger Eye PI investigation on galamsey.
According to the Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso, the President should not hesitate to punish anyone who would be guilty in the video just as the former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, was banned.
He said this at the launch of the GPCC Golden Jubilee anniversary celebrations on Monday, in Accra on the theme, “Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council: Celebrating 50 years of Pentecostal Influence.”
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso indicated that judges and GFA officials who were exposed in the previous Anas exposes were punished hence; culprits found guilty by subverting the President’s effort to fight against galamsey should not be protected, saying “nobody is under or above the law.”
He advised government officials not to run the country by inciting, creating division or tension against opposing parties.
“Such pronouncement are barbaric, wicked, evil, destructive, and only those who want us to entrust the country into their hands to govern come out with such means to attain power,” he noted.
He entreated political parties in the country to ban vigilantism, stressing that, “if any party or politician harbours vigilantes, all our members will reject that party or politician.”
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso added that vigilantism had nothing good to offer the country, and described it as a threat to the peace of the nation and lives.
He added that Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) were paid to be responsible for sanitation and should thus, not wait till the rainy season before they ensured gutters were distilled.
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso indicated that the GPCC had achieved a lot in relation to health and education, apart from their strong influence on the Christian landscape.
He further stated that a number of their member churches had established educational facilities all over the country as well as health facilities, especially in the remote areas.
Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso said the anniversary celebration would be climaxed in October with activities such as clean-up campaigns, health bazaars, anniversary lectures among others.
