The leader of the Ghana Evangelical Society (GES), has held that corruption and malfeasance must be stamped out as a matter of urgency, with diligent rules of conduct, reward and punishment.
Reverend Professor Immanuel Amanor Agbozo, said corruption was a disease more dangerous and aggressive than Ebola, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
Rev Prof Agbozo, who was speaking on the theme: “Let us work together to heal the land,” urged the media to assist in calling the nation unto definite and concerted efforts for the “healing of the nation” in all sectors of the economy, including national affairs.
Rev. Prof. Agbozo recalled that God in January promised to fulfill his promise to rescue the nation, build and establish Ghana in divine redemption, restoration establish divine heritage of glory.
He said to maintain the integrity of the “New Ghana Divine Heritage of Glory” God would bring judgment upon the wicked in the nation, in order to rid it of iniquity and evil works.
“The Lord mentioned flood and fire upon the nation before and prior to his call for confession and repentance of corruption, evil ways and wickedness in the land” he informed.
He said the waters that would flood the land would also serve as a process of healing and restoration of the land, which would bring forth great harvest and economic resurgence for the nation as the end result.
He said the flood and fire were not yet over, since the land needed to be purged of all its filth.
The GES leader said the negligence of duty, corruption, irresponsible and deliberate systems of abuse of office, trust and loyalty in many places, was weakening the nation.
He proposed the establishment of national initiatives to inculcate punctuality and productivity, efficient performance and output, rules of conduct, diligence and excellent performance in every human endeavor.
Rev. Prof. Agbozo noted that God would raise up new citizens dubbed “The New Ghanaian” for the country.
“They are people born anew, disciple and nurtured in the love and light, grace and truth, righteousness and humility in the divine nature inherent in Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures and the knowledge of God” he said.
He said corruption would not be the nemesis of the new Ghanaian, as well as unrighteous and wicked ways of men and spirits.
He urged the Media Commission and the Ghana Journalists Association to join hands to set the ball rolling with a “National Initiative of Decade of Glory,” for corrective and healing measures against corruption to ensure efficient and ethical conduct in the Ghanaian media industry.
