Stop the thanksgiving and get to work; PPP tells Prez Mahama
The Progressive People’s Party has suggested to President John Dramani Mahama to stop visiting churches for thanksgiving service for his victory in the presidential election petition.
The party’s suggestion is based on the belief that it is not a proper and efficient use of presidential time to be visiting churches (for thanksgiving service) for a single event that happened more than two months ago.
In a statement signed by the party’s National Secretary, Mr Kofi Asamoah-Siaw, it said the president had already visited four churches.
‘The president cannot possibly visit all religious groups and denominations to thank God Almighty for his victory,’ it stated.
According to the PPP, it had seen through the crystal ball of the president’s communications strategy to use God, churches and prayers to divert attention from the difficult economic circumstances of the country.
‘This strategy will not work and nothing of such nature will be able to divert attention from the fact that his government has not been impressive, has not delivered on its promise and the people are suffering from serious economic mismanagement,’ it stated.
It further said that the president made reference to the United Kingdom and the United States as examples of countries that had experienced economic challenges in their history.
Yes it is true, the PPP argues, but insisted that the leadership of those countries did not go to church every weekend for thanksgiving service as a propaganda tool to divert people’s attention.
According to the PPP, they provided leadership in the provision of basic education for all its children to guarantee them a better future; they built housing for their people to live in dignity; they built roads to open up their countries for businesses to grow to provide jobs for their youth, and they did not mismanage the resources bequeathed them by God Almighty.
‘All of us must be grateful to the Lord for his enormous blessing for Ghana in terms of natural resources but what have been done with these blessings?’ the PPP asked.
In the view of the PPP, the president has a four-year mandate to deliver on the 200 secondary schools and the better Ghana he promised.
‘He must fight corruption in his government. He must get to work and desist from propaganda even when it comes in religious cloak,’ the PPP concluded.
