Mahama Must Be Fair To Ghanaians – Evangelist
AN EVANGELIST of the Methodist Church in Kumasi, Mr. Samuel Mensah has urged President John Dramani Mahama to be fair to Ghanaians. According to the evangelist the recent adjustment in tariffs of utilities does not correspond with the 10 percent salary adjustment and has, therefore, deepened the economic crisis in Ghana.
Evangelist Sammy, as he is affectionately called, said the upward adjustment of Electricity and water tariffs to 78.9% and 52% respectively by the Public Utility Regulations Commission (PURC) has brought unimaginable hardship to Ghanaians.
He said President Mahama must be fair to the people who gave him the mandate to rule them, saying the recent utility adjustment is not justified, vis-Ã -vis the 10 percent salary increment of Government workers.
The Methodist Evangelist indicated although, that the said adjustment is yet to be implemented but Ghanaians have already started feeling the blunt of the proposed adjustment, putting majority of Ghanaians in abject hardship.
He noted that the numerous suicide cases in Ghana is linked to economic hardship and called on Government to consider ameliorating the plight of the poor through government intervention.
‘The Government claims there is no money but government officials and functionaries are living ostentatious lives while the ordinary Ghanaian worker is left to his fate without salary after months of working for the state.
Evangelist Sammy said Ghanaians are not being treated fairly and called on the President to rethink some of the social interventions evolved by the government towards improving the lot of the people.
He urged the President to be just and fair to the poor man (Ghanaians) on the street since he will account for it one day before Almighty God and the people who gave him the mandate as President of Ghana.
According to the evangelist, the enthusiasm by which Christians used to pray for the President and Ghana in the past drastically waned as a result of the untold hardship being foisted on Ghanaians by the government without restraint.
Evangelist Sammy has, however, called on Ghanaians to revive their dying intercessional prayers for President John Dramani Mahama and Ghana at large, calling on Christians to put on the armour of God and pray for Ghana without ceasing to seek divine interventions for the country and incoming generations.
