Politics of Wednesday, 28 November 2018
The newly-elected National Chairman of the largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, has said he will discharge his responsibilities with honour and dignity.
He made this known when he paid a courtesy call on the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, on Tuesday, 27 November 2018.
Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was at the Church’s General Headquarters to thank God for his successful election as the Chairman of the largest opposition party and to seek spiritual support and divine wisdom in leading the party.
Joining the staff in their morning devotion, Elder Ofosu-Ampofo attributed his landslide victory to the hand of God and thanked the leadership of the church for their prayer support.
The new National Chairman of the NDC said God has sustained him over the past 25 years in politics without any blemish. He, therefore, promised to handle his new position with dignity in order not to bring the name of the church into disrepute.
The Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye charged Elder Ofosu-Ampofo never to compromise his Christian values in his political career. He also admonished him to be the salt and light of his political party by leading it with integrity.
Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was accompanied by former Eastern Regional Minister Mavis Ama Frimpong, former Member of Parliament for the Ekumfi Constituency, George Kuntu Blankson and the Krowor Constituency Chairman of the NDC, who are all members of the Church as well as some members of Mr Ofosu-Ampofo’s campaign team.
Prayers were said for the NDC National Chairman and the nation.
Present at the event was the General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi.
