Show decorum, decency during campaigns – Methodist Bishop tells politicians
The Right Reverend Professor Osei-Safo Kantanka, Bishop of the Kumasi Diocese of the Methodist Church Ghana (MCG), has cautioned politicians to show decorum and decency in their utterances during the campaigns for the coming elections.
This, he said, was the only way the nation could be spared of antagonism, political violence, bloodshed and tension which are triggered by inflammatory utterances on the part of some politicians.
He reminded all that Ghana was not different from some of the nations which had been engulfed in political turmoil, pointing out that, “We are not angels and therefore what had befallen those countries could repeat itself on our soil if care is not taken.”
Right Reverend Professor Kantanka was addressing a conference to climax the 27th Anniversary Celebration of the Kumasi Diocese of the Association of Methodist Men’s Fellowships in Kumasi.
It was on the theme “If Men Unite and Change Perfectly in Mind and in Deeds, Nations Change.”
The anniversary sought to review activities of the Association, identify its successes and challenges within the context of Methodism.
