The Peace we enjoy must not be underrated - GPCC Vice chair
The Crown King Foundation in collaboration with Assemblies of God Ghana launched a non-denominational Peace campaign on Friday.
The Vice-Chair of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Apostle Bright Sasu has pleaded unto Ghanaians to pursue peace more than anything as the nation prepare to visit the polls on December 7.
According to him, Politicians quest for power should not be the reason for chaos between civilians given that God’s appointment of a leader cannot be compromised; a divine selection which must be accepted in good faith when the results are revealed and the president of Ghana appointed.
“The simple message I have is that we have only one nation called Ghana and every one of us must understand that God has blessed us with peace,” he said.
“When you look at the sub-region, Ghana is the most peaceful country and it’s a blessing that God has given to us hence the need for every Ghanaian to make every effort to maintain the peace.
“God removes and install Kings. If God chooses you, why not, we’ll accept you. You don’t have to do anything else to get people to vote for you. You have to love Ghana and do everything you can to maintain the peace that God has given unto us,” he charged.
The Crown King Foundation in collaboration with Assemblies of God Ghana launched a non-denominational Peace campaign on Friday, October 23, 2020. The program aimed at educating the congregation on the significance of preserving tranquillity before, during and after the election was themed, “Stand for Peace Before, During and After Elections”.
Briefing the press after the program, Apostle Bright Sasu preached that should any conflict befall Ghanaians when the harmony that enjoins citizens is underrated, it will be difficult to be accepted by neighbouring countries who seem not to have much in common with Ghana.
“We need peace, before, during and after the elections and all of must work together. You can understand with me that Ghana has a lot of francophone countries surrounding us and we don’t have many of us who speak French so should anything happen, where will we go?” he inquired.
The Chief Executive Officer of Crown King Foundation, Mr Daniel Terkpetey added that the unfortunate incident ongoing in Nigeria is a caution on the dangers of shunning peace. He warned the youth to desist from taking bribes in the name of creating violence to favour a certain political party and make meaningful use of their lives for National Development.
“We are heading towards election 2020 ad what we’re hearing from our neighbouring countries is not encouraging.
“The Youth are rising up with insults against politicians and what we must do is to preach peace. The election is not about insults, but who to vote for. We go there to vote and come home safely, and not to create mayhem.
“Should they give you money to be violent, tell them to give the monies to their families to fight for them. We must stop listening to their lies and find something meaningful to do with our lives,” he added.
