The Vice President of Ghana, Alhaji Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, has endorsed the Politicians Conference to be organised by The Church of Pentecost for all politicians in Ghana from 14-16 June 2023.
“It has come to my notice that from 14th to 16th June, you will also be hosting a Conference for Politicians. I must say that I commend The Church of Pentecost for this bold initiative and unreservedly endorse this conference. I hope and pray that this conference will positively impact our national politics,” he stated.
The Veep gave the endorsement when giving the keynote address at the 46th Session of the General Council Meetings of The Church of Pentecost underway at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC) under the theme: Repositioning the Local Church for Maximum Impact.
He commended The Church of Pentecost for organising transformational conferences, including the All Ministers Conference for all Christian churches in Ghana, Royals Conference for chiefs and all royals in Ghana, and the Politicians Conference.
“I have learnt with admiration of a Royals Conference hosted by your church last year, which brought together over 2000 royals from across the nation as an intervening tool towards the church’s contribution to the transformation of our chieftaincy institution,” Dr Bawumia pointed out, adding that the Politicians Conference will be a positive impact on the country’s politics.”
The Vice President urged the church to ask politicians to focus on proffering solutions to issues confronting the nation, not just criticisms. He said the conference was timely considering the problems confronting the country.
The Politicians Conference to be held at the Pentecost Convention Centre in June is aimed at providing a platform for politicians to interact in a godly atmosphere and discuss critical issues of nation-building in the light of Christian values for transforming politics in Ghana. It will also equip politicians with the right tools for productive politicking to benefit Ghanaians.
“I really look forward to such a conference and its aftermath,” he said, adding, I think the Holy Spirit will come down on that day.”
Prayers were said for the government and people of Ghana after the address by the Vice President.
