The Resident Minister In-charge of the Agona Swedru branch of the Christ Chapel Mission International, Rev. James Akyerekwa Jnr. has advised Ghanaians to desist from acts of corruption.
He said though corruption is a national issue, those in authority must live a life worthy of emulation devoid of corrupt character as posterity will judge every individual by his or her deeds.
The Resident Minister made the call when he was delivering his Christmas message during a sermon to commemorate this year’s Christmas celebration.
Corruption has render citizens of many countries, especially on the African Continent extremely poor.
Despite the glaring effect of corruption on countries on the globe, there are still increasing reports on the canker.
There are situations, where anti-corruption crusaders and Journalists have suffered in their bid to expose corrupt officials on the continent and across the globe.
However, their work and strong governmental institutions have also brought some level of sanity and system cleansing on the African Continent and some parts of the world.
This, the Minister noted that to leave a good name is far better than acquiring any riches on earth, and as such it would be better for everybody to seek for the former than the latter.
He attributed the downfall of not only people in authority but even people who were perceived to be men and women of God to selfish interest by going after material things rather than looking for a good name.
He later admonished Ghanaians to look up to God as the year 2021 is going to be a year of prosperity for the nation.
