Head Pastor and General Overseer of Life Assembly Worship Centre, Rev. Dr. Christian Kwabena Andre, popularly known as Kyiriabosom, has revealed that Ghana was sinking, attributing it to the lack of leadership by those at the helm of affairs and, therefore, called for a united approach to correct the mess.
Speaking to Today in an exclusive interview at the sidelines of an event organised by his outfit on the theme: “Republic Day Manifestation; Celebrating Dr. Kwame Nkrumah at the Church,” the man of God indicated that the country was sinking under incompetent leaders and the earlier everyone got up the better it would be.
He indicated that the nation would have developed if the right people with leadership qualities were given the chance to lead.
According to him, the right people to lead were supposed to be teachers, the military, chiefs and pastors but all of such have been sidelined by the constitution and rather giving the impetus to market women and laymen.
This, he said, was not proper and must corrected by a consented effort.
Osofo Kyiriabosm made the above observations at the weekend when he joined forces with the Osagyefo Youth Movement (OYM) and the Kwame Nkrumah Ideological Institute (KNII) to reiterate the unique transformational leadership style demonstrated by Ghana’s first President, which according to him, has been watered down by the Akufo- Addo-led administration.
His statement, according to him, was not to prepare the minds of Ghanaians to expect him on the ballot of a political party. However, he noted that a spade must be termed a spade and not any other thing.
“The office God has place me is higher than becoming a President, I am a spiritual person if anyone expresses interest in becoming a leader in the party, I will check from the spiritual realm before giving the nod. I do not have an interest and will not relegate myself to becoming a President,” he averred,
He further indicated that Ghanaian politicians were limited in the quality of knowledge needed to turn the fortunes of the country either to better the lot of the country built by the first president or the kind of knowledge and leadership qualities that would enable the nation bounce back on track as the beacon of Africa.
According to him, when you live in a country where leaders lack vision and direction, it would be difficult telling church members to hope for a kingdom promised by God when they could not put body and soul together.
Social vices, he said, will be on the rise, adding that “if the nation fails to find work for its citizens, they will find work for themselves.”
“I drive through town and see able-bodied young ones waving at me, you see, they wave at me today, tomorrow they will force people out of their cars while some will jump at anything whether good or bad,” he cautioned.
According to him, it was for that reason that the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) has been formed to correct the mess created by the directionless leaders of our dear country.
“Akufo-Addo is a lawyer, Mahama is a communicator, these people are not leaders. Leadership can be found in the military, police, chiefs and pastors and these are same people our outdated constitution has forbidden from engaging in the leadership of this country,” he said.
Later a statement delivered on behalf of the Kwame Nkrumah Institute by Dr. Ben Anyagili indicated that true prophets have the foresight and the heart to tell what the future holds for the nation going forward, therefore, it was proper to consult with them.
According to Dr. Anyagre, the prophet’s sermon on the 14th of June this year touched on the fact that everything ought to be cleaned from environmental cleanliness to enforcement of law on corruption and the shift from deep seated partisan politics to true national cohesion and coexistence.
He said that the youth were trapped in the state of despair, anxiety and frustration with their hopes battered by growing unemployment whilst visibly abandoning factories established by Nkrumah dotted across the country were left to rot.
He added that those factories were meant to create jobs and create a working and industrial population intended to absorb the able body young men and women.
