Suspend Christians who won't vote on Election day - Pastor

Head Pastor of the Church of Pentecost at Odorkor in the Greater Accra Region is calling on the church authorities of various branches to expel church members who do not vote in the December 7 general elections.

Describing those who have refused to vote as a “good for nothing” citizens, Apostle Badu cautioned church members across the country to take the December polls more serious.

“If you don’t vote, it means you have something wrong with your head. As a church member and Christian it is mandated for you to vote. If you don’t then it means we take you off as a church member. I want everyone to take this election as more serious than ever...,” he declared.

Apostle Badu in an interview with Adom News during the church Peace campaign service dubbed ‘Agent of Peace’ said, people who do not vote are 'enemies of progress' and must not be entertained in their respective churches and in the country as whole.

“As a pastor and church member, your inability to vote means you are unserious and unpatriotic. If you don’t vote you are not helping the nation. Every genuine pastor makes sure to vote but does not go ahead to declare their political stands to the congregation” he stated.

Meanwhile, the head pastor of the Palace Chapel Grace Temple at Spintex in Accra, Prophet Nana Adepa believes voting is not biblical hence must not be imposed on Christians.

“The role of Christians ahead of the 2016 polls is to watch and pray to prevail before, during and after the elections but not to be forced or coerced" he added.
