Stay Away From Bawku Conflict– Rev. Dr. Steve Wengam Warns Politicians

Bawku Conflict

The Newly sworn-in General Superintendent of the Assemblies of Ghana, Rev. Dr. Stephen Y Wengam has warned politicians to stay away from the Bawku Conflict.

He was of the view that successive governments’ inability to resolve the protracted conflict was due to political interference and pleaded with them to desist from it.

Rev. Dr. Wengam made these assertions during his induction service as the General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Ghana (A-G) and other Presbytery Executive Officers of the church in Accra recently.

Accepting his new position with all humility, Rev. Wengam appealed to members of the church to give him and the other officers the needed support to be able to discharge their assigned duties well.

Touching on the crawling difficulty in tackling indiscipline such as corruption, despondency, dishonesty, illegal mining, inflating prices of goods, extortion, and others he said the only solution prescribed to curb these societal menaces is righteousness and the Assemblies of God Ghana through its Theme ” Holiness for Revival” and its outreach programs and projects would help salvage the situation.

He then urged other churches to join hands in infusing the spectrum of Holiness in every aspect of national life.

The General Superintendent of A-G called on the new Presbytery Executive Officers and the entire members of A-G to embrace transformation leading to Holiness, which according to him was the only solution to national decay and the growing challenges of warfare.

Rev. Wengam noted that as part of the church’s centenary celebration, an iconic ultra-modern tower would be built to enhance outreach programs.

The General Superintendent revealed that the church was embarking on a transformational agenda to rebrand the taking over of church leadership positions.

He said the core value of the transformational agenda is to Shift, Grow and Transform the lives of people.

Rev. Dr. Wengam observed that through this agenda the church would plant churches in cities, rural areas, towns, and everywhere possible.

He praised past leaders and members of the church for having confidence in him and the Presbytery Executive Officers and asked for their support.

The new Executive Presbytery Officers who were sworn in included; Rev. Dr. Godwin Tito Agyei – Assistant General Superintendent, Rev. Dr. Ernest Birikorang – General Secretary, and Rev. Dr. Simon Abu Baba – General Treasurer.

Officiating Minister, who doubles as the General Superintendent of Assemblies of God, Tanzania and President, of Africa Assemblies of God Alliance, charged Rev. Dr. Stephen Wengam and the Presbytery Executive Officers to be courageous in the discharge of their duties, adding that they should not allow the size of the opportunity and the little resources before them intimidate them.

He was of hoped that the A-G members will give their new leaders their full support.
