Fight against corruption, social exclusion with passion – Otumfuo
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, has rallied the church to remain relentless in the fight to purge the country of corrupt practices, social exclusion and injustices.
It should work with zeal and passion to help build the society on strong moral values and ethics.
The Asantehene said this when he received a joint delegation of the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches to the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
He saluted them for the immense role they have been playing to assist, overcome poverty and transform the society.
The church has proven to be a genuine and sincere development partner over the years and said its human-centred ministry had touched the lives and make things better for particularly many in deprived communities.
He cited the building of schools and health facilities and said these were major areas where their contribution had been profoundly heartwarming and substantial.
The delegation was there to introduce recently inducted leaders – the Reverend Amfo Akonnor, Asante Presbytery Chairman of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, and Mr Kwasi Atta-Antwi, Kumasi Diocesan Lay Chairman of the Methodist Church, to the King.
The Asantehene asked the leadership to focus on strengthening internal structures of the church to consolidate the gains they had made over the years.
The Right Reverend Professor Osei Safo-Kantanka, Methodist Bishop of Kumasi, pledged to deepen the church’s relationship with the Manhyia Palace to promote development.
