Christians instrumental in democratic dispensation - Rt. Rev. Nyarko Andam

09 Jan 2018

The Methodist Bishop of Kumasi, the Right Reverend Christopher Nyarko Andam, has commended the Christian fraternity for playing no mean a role to sustain the nation’s democracy under the Fourth Republic Constitution.

“The significant contribution of Christians in helping to engender socio-economic growth and political stability as we celebrate 25 years anniversary of democracy cannot be underestimated,” he said.

Rt. Rev. Andam, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi, said the Church had been instrumental in supporting the state to fight corruption and bribery, indiscipline, bad governance and other unhealthy practices inimical to the advancement of the rule of law.

He said this on the sideline of a ‘covenant’ service, organized by the Adum Wesley Cathedral of the Methodist Church Ghana.

The Methodist Bishop indicated that the creation of a just society should be the priority of all stakeholders, especially the leadership as the nation sought to bring hope to the masses through democratic governance.

“Our responsibility as a people as we move forward is to make sure that everybody has an undeniable access to education, healthcare, clean water and other amenities needed to enhance our living conditions,” he stated.

The ‘covenant’ service is a special occasion on the Church’s almanac intended to bring the congregants closer to God as they rededicate themselves to the tenets of Methodism.

They prayed for the leadership, peace and unity of the nation.

Rt. Rev. Andam said the Church was an agent of change, and as a result, the members should always be actively involved in ventures that promoted the interest of the society.

He cautioned them to be focused, avoiding utterances and practices that had the tendency to tarnish their image as “children of God”.
He also told them to be truthful, honest, accountable and God-fearing in their respective fields of endeavour.
