Wa Local Council Of Churches

The Wa Local Council of Churches have lifted up their voices to the heavens asking God to grant Ghana another peaceful Presidential and Parliamentary Elections come December 7, 2020.

The prayer for peace meeting, which took place at the Rev. Paul Adu Methodist Church in Wa marked the climax of a one-week fasting and prayers for peaceful elections in Ghana.

Organized under the auspices of the all Christian Bodies in Ghana, the prayer meeting was on the theme: “Seek Peace and Pursue it”.

The Very Rev. Isaac Affum Baah, Circuit Minister, Wa Methodist Church, in a short exhortation called on the youth not to allow politicians to influence them negatively for power.

He also cautioned politicians against using money to influence people to disturb the peace that God had bestowed on the country.

“When your brother have peace, you will also have peace”, he said and admonished people to go out on election day and vote peacefully, return home and wait for the media to inform them about the results.

The Rev. Stanley Kayil, Regional Supervisor, Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) Civic/Voter and Peace Educators, noted that “we’re one people and we should not allow the political parties to divide use”.

The Rev. Kayil who is also the Resident Pastor of the Christ Frontiers Ministry, disclosed that about 76 per cent of Ghanaians were in love with democracy according to the Afro Barometer Survey, 2019.

According to the CODEO Civic/Voter and Peace Educator there were still some people saying they would not vote, appealing that such people should be encouraged to participate in the electoral process.

Haala Kuoro Hajaratu Limann Buktie, the President of the Upper West Queen Mothers Association and Member of the Upper West Regional Peace Council appealed to all to remember women and children and avoid acts that may cause trouble in the elections.

“We have only one Ghana and we should ensure we remain a peaceful country after December 7, 2020”, she admonished.
The Paramount Queen Mother of the Gwollu Traditional Area also encouraged the media to desist from unnecessary sensationalism and be as objective and unbiased as possible.

After a general prayer of thanksgiving, confession and national repentance, there were specific prayers by the men of God for the Electoral Commission, Presidential and Parliamentary Candidates, Political Parties, the three arms of Government, the security services and the media.

There were also special prayers against political vigilantism in the country.
