The Church of Pentecost has justified its call for the establishment of a national moral integrity council to spearhead the restoration of the country’s morality.
Speaking in an interview on Eyewitness News on Citi FM on Friday, Apostle Alexander Kumi-Larbi, General Secretary of the Church of Pentecost, said this was part of other efforts that would get the country back on track towards success.
“There is the need to form a moral integrity council. This is a recommendation that will lead us in the process of restoring the moral decay in our nation,” he stated.
Apostle Kumi-Larbi’s comments follow the two-day conference organized by the church, which opened on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, at the Pentecost Conference Centre at Gomoa Fetteh near Kasoa in the Central Region.
The conference brought together major development actors, partners, and stakeholders to discuss the theme: “Moral Vision and National Development.”
The conference was graced by Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin; the Chief Justice, Gertrude Torkornoo; former presidents John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama.
The conference was supported by the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) and in a press statement issued by Kofi Yeboah, the General Secretary of the association, it was explained that the GJA finds the conference worthy and timely, given the heightened public discourse on moral values and national development in recent times.
The GJA President Albert Kwabena Dwumfour also spoke at the event.
