Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rt Rev. Professor Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante has called for a change in Ghana’s politic, stating the current environment is breeding apathy.
“People seem to be fed up; everything is becoming NDC and NPP and I think that things must change politically,” he advised.
Speaking at the induction of the Bono West Chairman of the Presbyterian Church in Berekum, Rt. Rev. Yeboah Mante argued “when people see that things are changing, they will no more be apathetic to any national exercise”.
He expressed worry about the politicisation of everything in the country along NDC and NPP lines.
“People are worried and that is why the apathy is showing and I think that both the NPP and the NDC should beef up proper politicking for Ghanaians to believe in their political systems so that when they come and say that they will do A B and C, A B and C are done,” he stated.
Rt Rev. Prof. Mante observed that there were certain national issues that did not have to be politicised.
He stated that Ghanaians were eager to see the rapid development of the country, indicating that it is only when the nation begins to develop that they would believe in the political system and be part of its governance.
In his sermon, the moderator observed people nowadays are physically, spiritually and emotionally wounded and are in dire need of healing.
He therefore urged pastors of the church to support their preaching with the healing power of the Holy Spirit and help the people to overcome their spiritual barrenness.
The Moderator administered the induction rituals and presented him to the congregation.
