THE CHURCH LEFT GHANA FOR POLITICIANS TO RUN AND THEY FAILED – Dr Lawrence Tetteh Bemoans

Concerns regarding the church’s choice to give all governance duties to politicians have been voiced by Founder and President of World Wide Miracle, Reverend Dr. Lawrence Tetteh.

In a December 31, 2023, interview on TV3’s Hot Issues, Dr. Tetteh stated that the nation’s current problems are a result of abandoning governance to politicians.

“I think that the church lost its guard by leaving everything in the hands of the politician. That is the naivety that I think we have woken up to. And going forward, we are going to be handling things in terms of values, principles and also taking into consideration that, we left everything in the hands of politicians and politicians almost let us down,”

In her discussion of the church’s contribution to national development, Dr. Tetteh called for a reevaluation of the idea that only politicians should make decisions. He emphasized the advantages of religious participation in education.

“When the church controlled the schools, there was a lot of moral discipline. The values came down when the church left the schools in the hands of just the government and politics.”

Dr. Tetteh bemoaned Ghana’s lack of progress and faulted succeeding administrations for not safeguarding public funds.

“Successive governments have not been able to protect the national purse. Successive governments begin programs, and governments that take over do not continue it.He lamented.

Dr. Tetteh also touched on President Akufo-Addo’s promise to protect the public purse and the establishment of the Office of the Special Prosecutor. Despite these efforts, he observed that the issue of corruption persists, noting, That does not help development. We have become so politically minded instead of nationalistic or Ghanaian minded.”

“I was very excited about it initially but having heard some of the things, if my colleagues there are very uncomfortable I think I will be very unwise to want it done,” Dr Tetteh said.
