Ghana’s age must reflect its development - Rev Ofosu-Addo
Reverend Kwabena Ofosu-Addo, the Chairperson of the Brong Ahafo Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG), has called for concerted efforts from Ghanaians to transform the nation.
He said at 60, the nation must demonstrate maturity in its development and he agreed with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that the era of mediocrity was over.
Rev Ofosu-Addo was addressing the 51st Session of the Brong- Ahafo Presbytery in Sunyani, on the theme: “When The Holy Spirit Moves, There is Divine Restoration.”
He explained that governance was about setting right leadership examples and placing the development of her citizenry and the nation as paramount.
He said: “We have lived long enough to witness Ghana’s developmental processes but to say the least; it has been slow and unimpressive in spite of some successes.”
The Presbytery Chairperson urged Ghanaians to do away with corruption, political opulence, sensational and unproductive media reportage, moral degradation and replace them with attitudinal change and strong political will to restore the nation to its glory.
Rev Ofosu-Addo urged the leadership of the country both political and institutional, to be principled, transparent and disciplined in their manners and proactive in their mission and called for all hands to be on deck for the rebuilding of the nation.
He commended Rev Kwasi Tettey, the Minister in-charge of Tema Community 11 Presbyterian Church, for his support to mission work by donating a motor bike worth GHC3,500 and paying quarterly allowances for some Ministers serving in deprived communities of the country.
The week-long session was preceded by a three- day prayer retreat with Dr Abboah-Offei of the Grace Evangelical Mission, Akropong Akwapim, as the main Speaker.
