The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council has commended Ghanaian women for their role in the development of the country.
The Council, in a statement dated August 8, 2019 and signed by its General Secretary urged all Ghanaian women particularly Ashanti, Fante and Ewe women not to be discouraged by the ‘reckless and ethnocentric’ comments by Prophet Badu Kobi.
Below is the statement
STATEMENT BY GHANA PENTECOSTAL AND CHARISMATIC COUNCIL (GPCC) IN COMMENDATION OF WOMEN
The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council has noted with grave concern certain ethnocentric comments made by some Pastors in the recent past specifically against Ashanti, Fante and Ewe women. The Council wishes to encourage all women, especially, those of the aforementioned tribes not to be deterred by such unguarded statements from whatever source.
The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council commends all women, for the valuable and commendable roles they play in the Church in Ghana as well as their immense contributions to national development.
The Council acknowledges the great support these women have offered and continue to offer to their husbands and families to attain greater heights in their endeavours and ask that they should not be bothered by any reckless statement from anyone be it a clergy, a politician or a traditional leader.
May we remind all Ghanaians that, we are one nation and one people with one destiny, and that there should be no place for tribal utterances that can fuel division among us.
Again, any such unsavory statement should not be worth our discussion or time because the Ghanaian woman remains a force to reckon with in the society and deserves our commendation.
