APOSTLE KOFI Nkansah-Sarkodie, the Founder and head pastor of the Open Arms Ministries (Jesus Chapel) in Kumasi says what Ghana needs now is to speak truth to power without any pretence and not national fasting and prayers.
He has therefore criticized the clergy and church leaders who recently declared a week-long prayer and fasting for the country as a result of the economic turbulence the country is facing, arguing that the people in authority actually know what is best for the country and the people.
Saint Sark, as he is popularly called, said the government must do the needful and be saved from all the disgrace and embarrassment that has plagued the ruling NPP government.
Addressing journalists at one of series of press conferences in Kumasi, Saint Sark insisted that what is happening is as a result of sheer wickedness and lack of love for country and insisted that this is deliberate to let the citizenry suffer.
Commenting on recent developments in Ghana’s Parliament, he said there is no need to waste time and money for a Parliamemtary committee to look into the Minority MP’s allegations against the Finance Minister because even his own MPs are in arms against him.
Saint Sark therefore advised the embattled Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta “to quit the job in his own interest and for the sake of the country”.
He also advised the military not to try to take advantage of the current situation to contemplate or attemp a coup d’etat, explaining that the country had long moved away from the era of coups d’etat and gave the assurance that things would normalize at the right time.
The servant of God also commented on a video circulating on social media where some young girls were seen insulting the President and cautioned children to desist from such practices because even the bible prohibited it.
He, however, reiterated that he still endorses hooting and jeering as a sign of protest.
