Apostle Nyamekye Urges Church Leaders to Combat Corruption for National Development

The President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has urge church leaders to take an active role in the fight against corruption in all its forms.

 Apostle Nyamekye asserted that corruption stems from incompetence and greed, resulting in dire consequences such as poverty, lack of development, diseases, premature deaths, hopelessness, and unemployment.

Addressing a gathering of the GPCC 2024 Heads of Churches and Organisations Conference at Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region last Thursday, Apostle Nyamekye said “The key to the nation’s development lies in the character of its people.”

The two-day event is on the theme: “The Church, God’s Instrument for Peace and Transformation.”.

The meeting is a gathering of Church leaders and their secretaries within the Charismatic and Pentecostal fraternity for a retreat.

Social Danger

Highlighting corruption as a social danger, he emphasized its role in environmental degradation, stating that it destructively influences the nation and favours the privileged, warning that corrupt social structures make life difficult for everyone.

Apostle Nyamekye who is also the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, underscored the church’s responsibility in societal affairs, noting that it cannot remain indifferent to the issues affecting the nation as they ultimately impact the church as well.

 He called on men of God to prioritize focusing on scripture and guiding people towards God over personal interests.

In his address, Apostle Nyamekye expressed concern about the complexity introduced by Church leaders, urging them to simplify the gospel for broader understanding. He emphasized the importance of making the message accessible to all, fostering an environment where the scriptures are not only preached but also comprehended by everyone.

Additionally, Apostle Nyamekye charged leaders to encourage their congregants to settle down, cautioning against instilling false hope. He stressed that the Church must actively engage in initiatives that contribute to the nation’s development, aligning with the broader vision of creating a society free from the shackles of corruption and fostering genuine progress.

Apostle Nyamekye’s impassioned call serves as a rallying cry for church leaders to play a pivotal role in addressing the societal challenges posed by corruption, promoting a culture of integrity, and contributing to the overall development of the nation.
