A group calling it self Concerned Clergymen Association of Ghana has condemned what it describes as interference in political activities by the Christian Council of Ghana and the Council of Charismatic Churches.
According to the group, the action of the two bodies in recent times constitutes an embarrassment to the entire Christian community.
The Concerned Clergy group also accused the Christian Council of being bias in their judgement and and advised them to stay neutral to earn the respect of society.
Responding to a recent joint communique issued by the Christian Council of Ghana and the Ghana Charismatic Council which called on the Electoral Commission to implement the Supreme Court’s directive and delete the names of people who registered with NHIS cards.
President of the association, Bishop Prince Benny Wood, who spoke on behalf of his group on Okay FM on Thursday asked if the Christian Council led by Reverend Dr. Emmanuel Opuni Frimpong clearly understands the ruling.
He added that the EC was clear on its position and said it is already implementing aspects of the directive. The president of the Concerned Clergymen Association said because the bone of contention is about the NHIS card bearers whose names are on the register, it is unfair for any third party to take sides.
The Concerned Clergymen said the Christian Council should rather have advised Abu Ramadan and his group to go back to the Supreme Court for interpretation as was indicated by Justice Jones Dotse, a member of the Supreme Court panel which sat on the case.
