General overseer at the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensa Otabil has argued that the reason why Ghana and Africa continue to retrogress is because Africans lack innovation.
According to the pastor, people have refused to think and come out with new ways of dealing with issues when that is one of the surest ways to ensure development.
"I believe one of the biggest challenges we have as a people especially in this country is lack of creativity. We solve problems in the same old way. You put people together to think about a program and they will give you the same ideas that came up in 1957 and say this is how it was done, but that was back then... I think Africa is lagging behind is we think traditionally. We don’t challenge our minds to invent,” he added
Pastor Otabil made these comments in one of his series dubbed 'Breaking Generational Curses.'
