Pastor commends Police Administration during Christmas holidays

Prophet Dadebo Acquah, Founder and Leader of Ward Haris Twelve Apostles Church, has commended the Police Administration for making personnel of the service visible and accessible before, during and after the Christmas holidays.

Prophet Acquah said it was joy to see policemen in almost every corner, which helped to reduce criminal activities during the yuletide festivities in the cities.

Prophet Acquah made the commendation in an interaction with the Press at Agona Mensakrom, in the Agona East District where he led the congregation of the Church to pray for the country to usher in the New Year.

He expressed the hope that the move by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) would not be a nine day- wonder, but a permanent feature.

The Founder and Leader of the Twelve Apostles Church appealed to Churches and Muslims to pray without ceasing for the President Mr John Dramani Mahama, the cabinet, and the entire government for God’s guidance and protection in 2014.

At Agona Swedru, Reverend Charles Arkoh Nunoo, in charge of the Central Assemblies of God Church, urged Ghanaians to work hard in support of the government to develop the nation.

He urged Ghanaians to eschew negative tendencies that would affect the over-all interest, adding that without collaborative efforts it would be difficult to reduce poverty and hunger facing the people.

Rev Nunoo recounted the nation's economic crisis in 2013, and appealed to government to put in place pragmatic policies in 2014.

Rev Gyasi Acheampong, Head Pastor of the Damascus Church at Agona Swedru, appealed to the youth not to dissipate their energies on drugs, alcoholism and other social vices that will ruin their future.

He called on politicians to do away with corruption and bribery to ensure economic prosperous for the country.

Rev Acheampong urged political appointees not to see themselves as the luckiest people to amass wealth at the expense of the poor and vulnerable in society.

Rev Augustine Tetteh, head pastor of the Agona Swedru Number Two Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), asked Ghanaians, especially Christians, to change their lifestyles which inhibit development in their various communities.

He said government alone cannot shoulder the economic development of the country, and appealed to all and sundry to rally behind the government to promote the welfare of the citizenry.
