70% Of corrupt politicians are Christians – Rev. Asante

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Ghana, Most Reverend
Emmanuel Asante, has stated that about 70% of Ghanaian politicians who
claim to be Christians easily forget their doctrines when voted into
office and rather choose to engage in corruption to the detriment of all

He made the statement at Wenchi in the Brong Ahafo Region on Saturday
to mark the yearly celebration of the Methodist Mens Fellowship of the
Methodist Church on the theme: ‘Holistic Spirituality’.

Quoting Martin Luther King to buttress his stance on the theme, he
pointed out that, “any religion that does not regard social and economic
well-being of its people is rather a bogus religion.”

According to him, being holistic in spirituality involves being
discipline, diligent at work and being punctual at the work places,
among others.

Most Reverend Asante added that Christians must contribute their quota
to nation building because at the end of the day, all and sundry stand
to benefit when the economy of the country improves.

The Queenmother of Wenchi Traditional Area, Nana Atoa Sramangyeduam,
who also spoke at the function recollected how the Wenchi Senior High
School came into being through the hard work of the Methodist Church and
praised the church for establishing a university college at Wenchi.
