Accra, Dec. 30, GNA - Pastor Kofi Okyire Appianing, Madina District Head of the Church of Pentecost, has called on Ghanaians to bury their differences and throw their weight behind the new government to ensure the rapid development of the nation.
He said now that the elections were over, there was the need for Ghanaians to embrace peace and unity, which was the bedrock for development.
Pastor Appianing made the call at the end of this year’s Christmas Convention of the Church at Madina in Accra.
He commended Ghanaians for voting peacefully during the just-ended elections and also for peace prevailing after the elections.
Pastor Appianing urged the youth to desist from the get-rich-quick attitude, which had eaten deep into the society and rather put their trust in the Lord for their success.
He also asked Christians to open a new chapter by refraining from acts, which hinder national development.
Pastor Appianing attributed the country’s socio-economic woes to Christians mad rush for monetary gains instead of seeking their spiritual growth.
He tasked religious leaders to desist from all forms of negative tendencies that may tarnish the image of the clergy.
