From Samuel Mensah Torbizo Kumasi
Contrary to the prophecies by some men of God to the effect that Ghana is likely to witness a civil unrest after the Supreme Court gives final ruling on the election petition, the General Overseer of the Caravan Prayer Outreach Church at Gyinyase in Kumasi, Apostle Johnson Ackaah Braimah, has said that the country will continue to remain peaceful and united.
Ghana, he noted has become a democratic beacon in the sub-region, hence the citizens have every right to ensure that they protect the accolade it has earned, as of one the countries where democracy thrive to enhance continuity in development.
It would be recalled that a fortnight ago the General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr. Mensah Otabil revealed that he felt in his spirit that something heavy is ready to befall the country and called for incessant prayers to avert any misfortune that awaits the nation.
But Apostle Braimah said that heavy thing in the spiritual realm, is the cloud of protection that was hanging around the country.
He explained that Ghana is one of God’s chosen countries hence He (God) would not allow any bad omen to replace the bountiful blessing He has for the people.
He said what the supporters of the two parties should bear in mind is understanding each other, which is the way after the final ruling by the Supreme Court.
Buttressing his point he quoted Luke 24:45 which read “Then God opened their minds to understand the scriptures”.
Apostle Braimah noted that though the country would continue to enjoy peace, irrespective of whose favour the ruling falls, there was the need for the religious bodies to intercede for the nation through prayers.
He believed that it is God who ordains a leader for His people, therefore the loser in the Supreme Court case must accept the outcome whole heartedly for the sake of democratic stability.
He asked the leadership of the two parties involved in the case to intensify sensitizing their supporters to desist from any act that can throw the country into a chaotic scene.
He further called for co-operation and collective contributions from all identifiable bodies to help in the process of national accelerated development.
