The founder and general overseer of the Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has cautioned men of God in the country as the 2020 election draws closer.

YEN.com.gh understands that the archbishop raises concerns about the manner in which prophecies, especially about electoral results, are communicated in the country.

He added that it is necessary for the prophets to be discreet and apply wisdom to the things they see in the spiritual realm before speaking in public about them.

Duncan-Williams went on to say that some prophets have made it their business to foretell electoral results usually in a bid to achieve parochial interests.

Such acts, he said, have the tendency to destabilize the country and should therefore be avoided, myjoyonline.com reports.

In other news, a photo of a man checking a betting slip under a billboard which shows the Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu, saying betting is evil, has popped up online.

The identity of the man is yet to be confirmed but the trending photo shows him positioned beneath the billboard of the Islamic cleric.

On the billboard is the sentence “SPORTS BETTING IS EVIL” and the memory verse Qu’ran 5:91 is added to it.

The billboard is one of many that have been erected in some parts of Accra, as part of a campaign against sports betting. This, however, did little to stop the young man who is busily checking his slip.
