The General Overseer of the Calvary Charismatic Center, (CCC) Reverend Ransford Obeng has admonished the Electoral Commission to ensure the will of the people is maintained in the upcoming general election.
According to him, God will not spare any one who overtly or covertly undermine the will of the people.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper after donating blood at a publicized exercise which formed part of his 60th birthday celebration, Rev Obeng prayed the EC and other allied bodies worked to ensure there was transparency in the polls which has been slated for later this year.
He noted the elections would by all indications be a crucial one and rallied mainstream players especially the EC and political parties to attend to the processes with open minds.
Rev Obeng, in a passionate tone stressed politicians work with open hearts as they partner the EC to give the country a free and fair election.
He wondered why politicians would practically kill or maim for power but would not do same when they attained power.
Rev Obeng advised they rather strive to better the lot of the people no matter where they were placed.
He called on the public to conduct themselves in a way that would engender peace and tranquility in the country ahead of the polls.
According to the Charismatic Pastor, the country would have been a paradise if successive leaders had applied the resources to developing it.
Rather, he cried, most of them had become greedy and had used State resources to better themselves and their cronies.
He stressed selfishness had had a toll on the country as leaders and government appointees had become so corrupt that they see the stealing of public funds as a business venture.
In a sober tone, Pastor Obeng said great leaders left good legacies after their tenure of office.
He, therefore, prayed aspiring presidents as well as the incumbent learn from good trailblazers.
According him, good leaders were noted for the sacrifices they made for their people.
He opined leaders should always learn to use the influence they wield to effect positive change in the lives of citizens.
Being the fourth time the church was organising such an initiative, Rev Obeng noted the church needed to show the way of helping people with what they had.
”As a leader and someone who had been privileged to live up to the age of 60 years, I may not have everything but I have blood and therefore I needed to give to those who do not have to help save lives”, the Gospel Minister drummed.
He assured this will not be the last time the church will be involved in such a social venture since he maintained it is the very reason God set up the church.
