By gna

The General Spiritual Head of the Saviour Church of Ghana, Elia Asirifi, has called on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to bury their political differences and cooperate to ensure national development.

He said the nation needed love, unity and peace for an accelerated socio-economic and political development of all to reduce the poverty confronting Ghanaians.

Addressing elders and pastors of the Church at Gomoa Nyanyano in the Central Region, Elia Asirifi noted that, the ruling and opposition parties must fight for a common goal instead of antagonising each other in the media.

He said the leaders of the country must learn to tell the truth to Ghanaians in order to receive God's abundant blessings to ensure prosperity for the nation.

The General Spiritual Head said the leaders of the nation must avoid cheating because it bred conflicts and war, adding that, many countries on the Africa continent had been plunged into wars and conflicts due to parochial interests on the part of their leaders.

He stated that the opposition could offer useful suggestions and plans to the ruling NDC government despite their political differences, especially on the current economic recession that had hit the world's economic giants.

The General Head of the Church stressed that the ruling NDC should also learn to listen to the calls from the other political side so that the people of Ghana would not suffer from the world economic downturn.

He called on church members, elders and pastors to endeavour to attend the pastors conference schedule for Nyanynao on March 27 this year to take stock of past.

He said the conference would discuss matters, including the repair of the Headquarters building and Mission house as well as the construction of new bungalows for pastors of the Church.

He warned pastors, elders and members that those who would fail to attend would cease to be members of the church.

The General Head of the Church cautioned any group of members who would hold church services without the consent of the leadership to stop since the church had been duly registered with the Registrar General's Department.
