Retired Archbishop for the Anglican Church- Kumasi diocese Most Reverend Professor Daniel Yinkah Sarfo has negated pressure exerted by the masses on the NPP government to fix the country.
According to him, the people of Ghana have rather contributed to the mess in the country.
Archbishop Daniel Yinkah Sarfo’s comments arrives after some Ghanaians, a couple of weeks ago hit the streets of Accra in protest against the NPP government over overburdened hardship in the country.
The demonstrators said, government of Ghana must fix the country [#fixthecountry] to relieve Ghanaians off hardship.
However, Archbishop Daniel Yinkah Sarfo speaking at Pastors Conference held in Kumasi last week said the NPP government alone is not to be blamed for the mess rather, Ghanaians is general have all contributed to the destruction of the nation.
“The country has been destroyed by all of us, right from when we gained independence till date ….. From Kwame Nkrumah’s time till date. If you want government to fix the country fix yourself first.”
Adding up to his point, Archbishop Yinka emphasized on bribery and corruption which almost every Ghanaian fall short off, galamsey, sakawa, serial killings amongst others.
He opined that, churches have also contributed to the mess because they are unable to speak against the evil committed by church members (people).
He said, despite the country’s numerous natural resources, Ghana is still not developing, people still strive in absolute poverty or hardship.
“Ghana is sick because this country has all the natural resources than other African countries but we’re still not advancing.” He stated.
