Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has called on the youth to desist from over-relying on pastors for their economic and spiritual upliftment.
"Don't rely on any pastor for your destiny," the maverick politician stated at an event to celebrate his 61st birthday in a video sighted by YEN.com.gh.
A believer of hard work, Kennedy Agyapong, argued that the moment people commit the realisation of their destiny in the hands of a pastor, they are doomed.
"…The moment you go to the Pastor, he knows you're vulnerable, so they begin to put fear in you. When you have the money, you give it to them by the time you realise you're broke," he stated.

Urging the youth to be hardworking and limit the time they spend in religious centres, he said excessive praying and casting out demons will not make one successful when there is work to do.
"There is no witch anywhere; when you fail in life and you attribute it to your mother, father but when you were smoking jar, was your grandmother there. When you were stealing from your boss, were they there?" he said.
