Methodist Bishop calls for 'holy anger' against Mahama…

The maverick Methodist Bishop of Kumasi, Rt. Rev. Prof. Osei-Kantanka has rallied Ghanaians to fiercely bare their teeth towards the incompetent and irresponsible Mahama administration by openly demonstrating their anger on the streets, churches and mosques in the country.

This, the bishop believes when continuously carried out in the country, will go a long way to force the Mahama administration to change gear and reverse the hardships innocent citizens are currently experiencing.

He has therefore called on Ghanaians to join all the upcoming demonstrations which are against the current NDC government and let them know that their excruciating policies are killing them.

The Bishop charged the Churches, Chiefs and Civil Society organizations to show their abhorrence to the current economic conditions prevailing in the country, urging them to lead a crusade to stem the tide.

Delivering a sermon on the theme: “Are we angry enough?”, Rev. Kantanka noted that though ‘anger’ was a word that most good books spoke against, it is welcomed when used in fighting the right course.

Speaking at the inauguration of the Atonsu Circuit of the Methodist Church, Bishop Kantanka bemoaned the anguish stirring Ghanaians in the face following the incompetence for the current administration.

Likening it to the ‘holy anger’ to that of Jesus when he whipped some ‘people who were selling and trading in the house of God, Reverent Kantanka called on Ghanaians to vent their anger on this government like what David unleashed on Goliath when the uncircumcised Philistine sought to defy the armies of Israel.

This nonsense must stop in this country’ the Reverend Minister furiously posited about the current trend of economic hardships.

He stressed the lack of jobs, the hopelessness confronting market women due to the rising interest rates and the debilitating power crisis as some of the issues choking Ghanaians currently.

According to Prof. Kantanka, a constraint demonstration of anger to this ill-performing government will help to arouse them from any slumber mood they might be having. ‘Ghanaians you need to show that you are angry about what is going on, but I don’t think what we as a people are doing will show that we are angry enough.’ ‘I don’t think we as a people and as a Church are demonstrating much anger to what is happening around us because we should not be sitting down like this.’

Bishop Kantanka wondered why Ghanaians have stood in timidity to allow the current administration to run down the country, insisting that ‘this nonsense must stop.
