Ghanaians Must Come Together To Build A New Ghana

Prof Emmanuel Agbozo, Leader of the Evangelical Society of Ghana (ESG), has said there was a divine call from God requesting his people, including Chiefs, politicians and the church, to come together to build a new Ghana. This new Ghana, he said, must begin with the pulling down of systems, structures, tools and weapons of division, disunity and destruction in all sectors. Speaking at a press conference to mark the 40 years of the existence of the ESG on the theme: 'Let Us Build Our Country, ' Prof Agbozo said there were two dimensions to the building process. He explained that the first one was the re-ordering of church mission and service position, and placing in national affairs, so as to give Jehovah God the rightful place, honour and glory in the nation. The second dimension, he said, was the re-ordering of the spiritual political, economic, social and cultural arrangements for the furtherance of national development, progress, prosperity and well being, happiness and joy of the people. He said the new Ghana of divine heritage of glory was to be built as a country of one God, one people and one nation of divine heritage, and destined glory in the kingdom of God and his Christ in Africa and the world. In this building process, the chieftaincy institutions must be relieved from defilement by the people with personal imperialistic tendency, disposition and ambition. There should be the breakdown of denominational walls, disunity, competition and non-co-operation systems and structures in the church. He said political parties, politicians and public servants also needed to embrace the spirit of unity, nationalism, loyalty and dedicated service to the nation, and the people which must be seen as the prime purpose and rationale for politics, business enterprise, national service, life and conduct by all. Prof Agbozo said the old Ghana had deliberately rejected the knowledge of God, his truth, law and light that cherish, promote and honour divine values and standard of conduct for peace, righteousness and justice, freedom and liberty, progress and prosperity for the nation and the people. He recounted that Ghana made steady progress at the beginning of nationhood under divine hand and global goodwill until 1960 when Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah-CPP government overturned the divine Christian heritage and launched the country on a Satan-man, atheistic, humanistic- scientific, socialist and Africa idolatrous one party state path. He said the overthrow of Nkrumah CPP-one party socialist state was the beginning of the divine wrath, judgment and moves to redeem the nation from the Satan-man, kingdom glory arrangement and part of glory for the nation. 'It is for this reason that God has set out to restore the nation onto her Christian roots for divine Godly government and Kingdom glory in Africa,' Prof Agbozo concluded.
