The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council has warned its members and religious leaders against making political predictions about the outcome of the impending general election in 2024.
According to political commentators, the election will be a two-horse contest between John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of the New Patriotic Party.
In an interview with Citi News, Apostle Immanuel Nii Okuley Tettey, Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, underlined the necessity of religious leaders preferring peace above making prophesies that might damage the nation.
He advised these leaders to focus on fostering peace rather than anticipating election outcomes, emphasizing the importance of not seeking favor from any particular political party and instead engaging in measures that contribute to the country’s long-term peace.
“If God reveals to you, keep it up in prayers. If God reveals to you, keep the person up in prayer, and let’s see God fulfil His prophecies. Don’t try to put it in a public place and we’ve seen it severally in times past that so-called men of God have prophecized that his person is going to win and it didn’t happen”.
