Ghanaians must change their negative attitudes for progress

Listen to article

Tema, Jan.4, GNA - Reverend Steve Weigam, Administrator of the Assemblies of God Church has urged Ghanaians to change their negative attitude and perspective of the nation in 2006 to bring the desired transformation.

He said unless Ghanaians had a change of mind and vision as well as change their negative perspective of the nation, God's promise of 2006 being a good year for the nation would not materialize.

Speaking at an annual educational programme dubbed "Pride of Champions" organized by the Messiah International Bible Church (MIBC), Rev Weigam said, Ghanaians should refrain from seeing the nation as poor but rather concentrate on tapping the numerous resources that abound on the land.

"As a people, we should change our negative thinking about our nation and believe that God would do a new thing in the life of this country in this year 2006," Rev Weigam stressed. He challenged Ghanaians both at home and abroad to desist from repeating past mistakes because that would not yield the expected results to move the country forward.

Rev.Weigam said the era when leaders were known to promise one thing and did otherwise was over therefore; leaders in the country must remain steadfast in their promises and develop strategies to fulfil them for Ghanaians.

Rev. Dr Emmanuel Tetteh, General Overseer of MIBC said the programme was organized at the beginning of every year to prepare the congregation to face challenges of the coming year. He said every year had its blessings and challenges therefore; it was necessary to equip the people to face the challenges in order to get the blessings.
