Pastor says politicians deceive people

The District Minister of Bohner Congregation of Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rev Kwasi Kyei-Baffour, has said the hardship people were facing was due to inability by politicians to fulfill their promises.
He said human beings, instead of inviting the Lord into their lives, rather put their trust in politicians and other things and when results were not forthcoming they complained.
Rev. Kwei-Baffour said this in a sermon at a special thanksgiving service the Church held to commemorate the 75th birth day and 40 years on the throne of Nana Ampim Darko V, Chief of Agona Kwanyako.
“It is about time as people stop depending on politicians and other things for they have nothing good to offer. It is only the Lord Jesus Christ who is compassionate and omnipotent,” he said.
Rev. Kwei-Baffour said it was important for Ghanaians not to allow themselves to be misled or deceived by politicians and some other people.
Nana Ampim Darko, also the Kyidomhene of Agona Nyakrom Traditional Council, thanked the Lord for guiding him as well as people who, in diverse ways, supported him to lead the people of the area.
Among personalities at the service were the Deputy Central Regional Minister Madam Pokowa Sowyer, Professor Tim Acquah Hayford a former President of Media Commission.
