Ghana: Pastor Advises NPP to Count On God

Kumasi — PASTOR AKWASI Agyeman Pambuor of the Church of Christ Anointed Healing Ministry in Kumasi has admonished the leadership and entire membership of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to count on the providence of God for victory at the Supreme Court.

He said the NPP should not feel embittered by the situation and pray to God for solace, while it pursued justice peacefully at the court.

The pastor cautioned the leadership to advise the teeming following of the party not to take the law into their hands and conduct themselves in a way that would breach the law.

Quoting from 2 Corinthians10:3-5, Pastor Pambuor noted that obedience on the part of the NPP, was a recipe for their victory.

Pastor Pambuor said the NPP should remain resolute in its bid to pursue justice at the Supreme Court and not yield to any provocation by sympathizers of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The man of God noted that the legal battle was of the Lord and reminded the NPP that the authority and power to govern is divine and that it is only God who chooses and decrees a leader for a nation, and that no matter how long royal authority is withheld it would eventually be restored in his own time.

He also encouraged the NPP to continually trust in God, because even in the face of the hullabaloo regarding composition of panel members to adjudicate the matter, it is God who would select the right judges to sit on the case.

Quoting Deuteronomy 1:16-17, Pastor Pambuor was of the view that since judgment was of the Lord, the judges in this historic case would not be partial but hear the dispute passionately without fear or favour as part of God's grand plan to choose a leader for Ghana even in this time.

He urged Christians and Moslems to pray to God for peace in the country while Ghanaians await the outcome of the NPP's petition against the President and the Electoral Commission
