Advocates for Christ Ghana (A4CG) is gathering Christian leaders in Ghana for a National Christian Forum.
The event will be held from Thursday 25th to Saturday 27th, August, 2022.
The objective is to evaluate the performance of the three arms of government and the Church in promoting and consolidating good governance for accelerated national development after 65 years of Independence.
This is contained in a statement issued in Accra on August 17, 2022 and signed by Mr. Edem Senanu.
The statement indicated that the 3-day forum will be hosted at two venues for in person attendance and also streamed live for virtual participants on Zoom, Facebook and YouTube:
- Thursday 25th August 6PM at the Legon Interdenominational Church, LIC, University of Ghana – Legon
- Friday 26th August 6PM at ISSER Conference Hall, University of Ghana – Legon
- Saturday 27th August 9AM at the Legon Interdenominational Church, LIC, University of Ghana – Legon.
“At a time when the nation’s economy is crawling, the cost of living is rising, and the poverty gap is widening, the 3rd National Christian Forum – NCF2022 accepts the challenge and responsibility to lead a discussion on reviewing the quality of Governance we have experienced, identify the gaps and distill God-inspired strategies, solutions and innovations to move the country forward,” the statement noted.
It added that, “This year’s forum will take an in-depth look at the impact of the 3 arms of government – Legislature, Judiciary, Executive on Ghana’s development over 65YEARS of nationhood. The church’s role will equally be analyzed. As is evident the theme presents a unique opportunity for collective introspection on Ghana’s journey since independence and what key stakeholders have contributed.
Though Ghana is celebrated globally for its democratic credentials and provides exemplary political leadership in the West African sub region, many Ghanaians are dissatisfied with the quality of governance and believe it can be better than what has been experienced. The high levels of reported corruption and waste of public resources, despite the fact that all the organs of Government are supposed to be functioning and apparently fulfilling their constitutional mandates, raises serious questions. NCF 2022 will look at what has worked? What has not worked? What can we do better moving forward? As a nation and especially as Christians.”
Speakers who will lead deliberations include; legal luminary Mrs. Clara Beeri Kasser-Tee who will be assessing the Effectiveness of the Judicial Arm of Government for the past 65yrs, Independent Presidential Hopeful, Mr. Jacob Osei Yeboah (aka JOY) – will be evaluating the Effectiveness of Executive Arm of Government for the past 65yrs, Human Rights Activist and Philanthropist Dr. Kodjoe Sumney will also critique the Effectiveness of the Legislative Arm of Government for the past 65yrs and General Overseer of the Great Commission Church International, Rev. JFK Mensah who will evaluate the Church’s role in the governance of the nation over the past 65 years.
Advocates for Christ Ghana is a growing movement of professionals, parents, pastors and of all Christians seeking to provide a permanent voice on National issues in Ghana.
