The Communications Director of the Hare Krishna Movement in Ghana, Jnana Chaksus Das has cautioned government to face reality and implement policies in solving the economic hardship facing the country, rather than believing in spiritual intercessions.
According to him, it is time Ghanaians stopped the blame game and work together to achieve a common purpose.
The Presiding Bishop and General Overseer of the Christian Action Faith Ministries (CAFM) Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams recently led a prayer and commanded a halt, to the depreciation of the Ghana cedi.
But speaking Tuesday on Pampaso on Adom TV, Jnana Chaksus Das warned that until politicians stopped being hypocritical, “Lakshmi” which in the Hindu religion is the name of the female deity in charge of money, will continue to elude Ghanaians.
Speaking on the same platform, the presiding pastor of the Freedom Chapel, Apostle Amoako Atta rubbished remarks by the National Women's Organizer of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) Anita Desooso that the steep depreciation of the cedi is as a result of black magic or vodoo. According to him, the country needs discerning and wise leaders.
“Leadership is the ability to achieve extra ordinary from ordinary resources and people” he said.
He noted that, tithes and offerings at the church have also depreciated alongside the cedi and needs urgent remedy.
