Political coloration detrimental to development

20.12.2011 LISTEN

Adaklu Kodzobi (V/R), Dec. 20, GNA – Rev Dan K. Dogbe, Human Resource Manager of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, has called for an end to political coloration of issues and the business-as-usual attitude that are drawing back the country's development.

“If we are serious about our development then politicizing every issue and the routine way of doing things must be stopped”, he said.

Rev. Dogbe said this when he presented used clothing including foot wears valued at about 5,000 Ghana Cedis to members of the Church at Adaklu Kodzobi.

He said the practice of removing people from certain organizations anytime there was a change of government should be given a second thought because it gave room for incompetence and bad management in those organisations.

Rev. Dogbe appealed to pastors to focus their preaching on practical issues that promote human and spiritual development rather than on miracles for prosperity.

A three-member delegation of World Ministry Outreach Fellowship (WMOF) based in Carlifonia, USA, has presented Christmas gifts to orphans in some communities in the Adaklu Anyigbe District.

The beneficiary communities were Have, Dzakpo, Kpatovoe, Dave and Waya.

Pastor Joe Roberts, Special Projects Director of WMOF, said the donation, which is a yearly affair, was also done in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, India, Pakistan and the Philipines.

Pastor Gideon Gogo, Ghana Representative of WMOF appealed to churches and individuals to give financial, material and moral support to the needy especially orphans during the yuletide.
