Ghanaians urged to remain united during, after election

By GNA

Accra, Dec. 1, GNA - Apostle Dr. Michael Ntumi, President of the Ghana Pentecostal Council (GPC), has reiterated the need for Ghanaians to remain united during and after the general election to sustain the peace prevailing in the country.

Dr Ntumi who was speaking at a day's women's conference at the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) Taifa, on Tuesday noted that over the years unity had earned many countries, political parties and football clubs greatness.

He said countries like the US and the United Kingdom were able to build their respective countries because of unity, peace and political stability.

Speaking to over 500 women on the topic: "Christian unity and fellowship", Dr Ntumi, who is also the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, said one of the amazing gifts from God was unity and fellowshipping.

He said to maintain unity and fellowshipping; there was the need for all to do away with backbiting, enmity, greed that did not augur well for the development of the country.

Apostle Ntumi told the conference to learn to keep the bond of fellowshipping and forgive one another adding: "On the altar of hatred, create a mercy seat so that you can forgive people."

Rev E F Okoh-Abosey, Regional Pastor, CACI, asked members to be calm when casting their votes during the December 7 election saying, "You must not do any thing to mar the exercise."

Apostle S.D.K Larbi, Field Supervisor, CACI, led the conference in praying for the nation for peaceful polls on December 7.
