The Head Pastor of the Ebenezer Christian Fellowship International, Prophetess Mrs. Patience Evelyn Sabuki has urged legible voters and the various political parties to collectively work together to ensure that the upcoming general elections is held in peace, transparent and free and fair.
According to her, pastors must not also use the pulpit to engage in political activities and appealed to them to refrain from political prophesies, adding that such attitude does not promote good governance and nation building.
She however called on the youth also not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to foment troubles and create chaos during the elections and therefore challenged the National Peace Council, National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), National Youth Authority (NYA) among others to sensitize the youth and other election related bodies to follow the rules and the regulations governing the political elections in the country.
The Head Pastor of the Ebenezer Christian Fellowship International, Prophetess Mrs. Patience Evelyn Sabuki made the call in an inclusive interview on the sidelines of its Thursday prayer service at Libya quarters, a suburb of Madina in the Greater Accra region.
Prophetess, Mrs Patience Evelyn Sabuki called on churches across the country to pray fervently for the country as well as political parties’ flagbearers for a peaceful election devoid of violence, insults and chaos and explained the church must play a significant role in the country’s elections process by preaching peace and unity to the congregants.
She further called on the National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) and its allied agencies to intensify its road safety campaign before and after the upcoming general election stressing that, there will be rallies all over the country as people will be transported from one point to another thus safety and precautionary measures be put in place, to avoid road safety fatalities and crashes.
On the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), she urged the public to observe the necessary protocols by wearing nose masks, frequent hand washing under running water and apply alcohol based hand sanitizer and again pointed out that it is the safest way to curb the spread of the virus.
