John Mahama reacts to proposal to regulate churches in Ghana

Former president John Dramani Mahama, has reacted to plans to regulate the activities of churches in Ghana.

According to him, the activities of some false prophets are not enough grounds to regulate religious organisations.

In his opinion, the church has come a long way and has contributed in shaping society, and for that reason, the councils and leadership of churches should deal with their own when they err.

He therefore urged the Christian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council and other groups to outline measures to deal with church leaders who went against the principles and teachings of the Christian faith.

Mahama passed these comments at the appreciation and retirement service in honour of Apostle Peter Okoe Mankralo, the immediate past president of the Apostolic Church, Ghana.

He took the opportunity to commend Apostle Mankralo for his 32 years of dedicated service to the ministry and for his selflessness and contributions to the Apostolic Church and the Christian family.

The former president also appealed to members of the Apostolic Church to continue to pray for Apostle Mankralo and his family as he moves into another chapter of life.

In other news, a group, Ghana Union Movement (GUM), has submitted its application to be considered as a political party in Ghana.

GUM has “Arise for Development” as its slogan and a fist of a man against two hands with the name and motto of the movement boldly written around it as its logo.
