Politicians should be straightforward, truthful .....
Accra, April 12, GNA - Apostle Dr. Opoku Onyina, Rector of the Pentecost University College at Sowutuom near Accra, has cautioned politicians against compromising their stance in their quest to satisfy all sections of the society.
"Politicians should be straightforward, truthful and bold in taking decisions when they know that they are on the right path even though such decisions may not be palatable to a section of the society." Apostle Dr. Onyina was addressing a five-day Easter Convention of the Kaneshie Zone of the Accra West of the Church of Pentecost in Accra on Sunday.
Preaching on the theme; "John's Head", he said people put in authority should be bold not to compromise their stance when they are pressurised to take decisions, which may in the end prove to be disastrous to the nation.
He charged Ghanaians to use the Easter period to share their wealth with the needy in the society to reciprocate the sacrifice Jesus Christ made by laying down his life for mankind.
The Founder and Presiding Bishop, Apostle Dr. Augustine Annor-Yeboah, preaching at the first convention of the Christian Praise International Centre (CPIC), urged Christians to continue to wait on God to fulfil the purpose of their call.
"It is dangerous for Christians to choose their own path instead of waiting on the Lord to direct them to walk on the narrow path that leads to salvation."
Apostle Dr. Annor-Yeboah asked Ghanaians to ceaselessly pray for smooth electioneering campaign towards the 2004 general elections in December.
At the Tweneboah Methodist Society, Asoredanho, The Very Rev. Isaac Aidoo also advised politicians to do away with slander and inflammatory statements in order not to create tension in the society.
He called on all political parties to tolerate views from their opponents to ensure the growth of the country's democracy. The Church used the occasion to confirm 23 youths into full membership.
At the Easter Convention of the Church of Bethsaida at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, the Most Senior Prophet Kwadwo Acquah asked religious leaders to refrain from exploiting their followers. He advised traders to regularly pay their taxes to enable the government to get the needed income for its developmental projects.
