Place the people’s welfare over and above everything – Politicians told

Accra, July 13, GNA – Senior Apostle Anthony Ahenkan, General Overseer of Emmanuel Salvation Church International, has advised politician to put the well-being of Ghanaians over and above their parochial interests.

Politicians, he said, must therefore fulfil their campaign promises to the electorate, to help improve their living standards.

Snr Apostle Ahenkan gave the advice when he interacted with newsmen at the Church’s premises in Accra, to give his views on some current national issues.

He advised politicians to desist from using money to influence the electorate for them to vote against their conscience.

Snr Apostle Ahenkan expressed grave concern about indiscipline among the Youth, and said as future leaders, if they continued to exhibit acts of indiscipline, the nation’s future would be bleak.

On bribery and corruption, the General Overseer said it required collective efforts of all Ghanaians to deal with them, by ensuring that they were reduced to the barest minimum if not completely eradicated.

Touching of the National Sanitation Day exercise, Snr Apostle Ahenkan commended the government for initiating the programme, and reminded Ghanaians that they could go about their normal activities only if they were sound in body.

He, therefore, deplored the apathetic attitude of some Ghanaians towards the exercise, and expressed optimism that all hands would have to be on deck, to ensure the success of the sanitation programme.
