DON’T ASK FOR ‘ANYANSAFOUR’ IN ONE GOV’T AND GO QUIET IN ANOTHER ONE – Mahama

John Dramani Mahama, a former president, has exhorted religious leaders to act impartially—that is, without regard to their political allegiance—when addressing the current economic difficulties facing Ghanaians.

According to John Mahama, church leaders shouldn’t be afraid to voice their concerns when they perceive something is wrong because they are a part of society and all societal issues have an effect on how the church functions.

“Anyansafuoeii mo wo hin?” which translates as “Where are the wise men?”, he asked.

“The church does not exist only to pray for leaders, it exists also to provide some suggestions and guidance to leaders because, after all, the church does not hang in the sky, the church exists in society, and whatever happens in society affects the church.

“Today, the economic crisis that we are in, affects our congregation and so it is necessary for the church to speak out anytime they think things are not going on properly,”he said.

Mahama was speaking at the induction ceremony of Rev Stephen Wengam as General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church in Accra on Saturday, February 25, 2023. He added that Christians shouldn’t be afraid to participate in politics because the decisions of politicians affect their way of life, hence, it is of important for Christians to add their voice to the affairs of the country.

“I said that the price that the wise pay for not participating in politics is to be ruled by fools and so we as Christians should not shy away from politics.

“I expect that this should be done no matter which government is in office. We must be seen to be balanced and nonpartisan, not ‘Anyansafuo eii mo wo hin” in one government and then go quiet in another one.

“We must always speak truth to power to whoever is in office if it affects the lives of our congregation. Christians must not be afraid to participate in politics,” he added.
