Accra, Dr Lawrence Tetteh, World Renowned Evangelist, on Tuesday, urged Ghanaians to eschew hatred, greed and insensitivity, as such traits impede national development
As a people we should endeavor to promote love, kindness, peace and unity, which propel national development he said.
Addressing a news conference in Accra to announce his forthcoming crusade in Denkyira-Obuasi, in the Central Region, dubbed: the Denkyira-Obuasi Restoration Crusade, from October 11, to Friday October 13, Dr Tetteh Noted it’s time to restore the people of Denkyira.
He stated: let us take inspiration from Joel 2:25, which reads And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker worm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army, which I send among you.
Dr Tetteh who is also Economist said in the light of God’s promise of restoration, I decided as a Man of God, to restore New Obuasi, popularly known as Denkyira-Obuasi, to normalcy, by organising this crusade in the town.
The international Evangelist pointed out that the death of Major Mahama had left a sour taste in the mouth of us as a people and the town and we must ensure that such dastardly act is not repeated adding this crusade is therefore necessary for the purification and sanctification of the town.
Dr Tetteh further noted the Crusade was a platform, which presents an opportunity for the Community to seek the face of God and never allow such an incident to occur again.
In times like this, it is easy for people to find faults and heap blame on one another, regardless of what investigations and outcomes the security agencies may establish, he noted.
Dr Tetteh said it was important to use the event, though sad, to reflect on individual and collective actions, attitudes and responsibilities towards one another; while sympathising with the family of the fallen soldier.
Instead of seeking for peace, people often fail to exercise restraint in dealing with one another but are eager to destroy a fellow human being. he emphasized.
The President Worldwide Miracle Outreach advised the community to use the crusade to resolve all issues and never again should they allow such suspicion, greed, and insensitivity to destroy the relationship among the children of God.
The Reverend Jackson Ofori, the Chairman of the Local Council of Churches of New Obuasi, again, rendered an apology to the family of Major Mahama and the people of Ghana, for misfortune caused and asked for forgiveness.
He said the Community was facing many challenges after the incident and appealed to the Government to aid in the strengthening of State institutions and the provision of infrastructure to eradicate the menace of instant justice across the country.
In a related development, Dr Tetteh will also hold a crusade at Koforidua dubbed: Koforidua for Christ Crusade, scheduled for Wednesday, October 4 to Friday October 6, at the Jackson Park.
