The Very Reverend Dr Yaw Frimpong-Manso, former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, has called on political leaders to stop the hypocrisy and rein in their erring followers.

He said keeping mute over insults and acts of violence by their supporters’ was indicative of tacit endorsement and this was unhelpful to the peace of the nation.

The former Moderator noted that this year’s elections would be a big test case for the nation and it was therefore imperative for all to pray and work towards safeguarding national cohesion.

The Very Rev Dr Frimpong-Manso was preaching at a watch-night service at the Bantama Peyer Memorial Presbyterian Church in Kumasi to usher in the New Year.

He appealed to Ghanaians to do away with vindictiveness and to forgive those who might have offended them.

This, he said, was the only way to sustain the peace and unity within the context of national development.

The former Moderator reminded church leaders to pursue holistic development programmes for the spiritual and physical growth of their members.

The church’s primary goal was to ensure total development of mankind through human-centred programmes, he added.

At the Wesley Methodist Cathedral, Right Rev Professor Osei Safo-Kantanka, said it was important for people to pray fervently to God for His continue blessings.

He said in spite of the challenges of the past year, the nation remained relatively peaceful and for this Ghanaians had every reason to be thankful to God.

He underlined the need to aggressively push ahead with the spread of Methodism, saying its doctrines and principles were relevant to the nation’s transformation.
