The President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has described prophecies regarding the outcome of elections as “wrong and fake.”
Reverend Prof. Paul Frimpong-Manso stated that such prophecies only end up creating confusion in the country.
He warned pastors against such acts, adding that they must be independent in order to be accessible to all political leaders.
“As we are getting closer to elections my fellow politicians and pastors, there has been a practice of people prophesying about elections. I want to say in no uncertain terms that these things are wrong, fake and false,”; he stated emphatically.
Speaking at the introduction ceremony of Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang to the Christian Community, he entreated prophets to instead pray for the candidates who are contesting elections.
Reverend Frimpong-Manso warned politicians against resting their hopes on these predictions.
He stated that some of these prophets tend to use this as a means of exploitation.
According to the President of the GPCC, elections are necessary to determine leaders.
“God has given the power to choose a leader through elections, campaigns and the ballot box. If it would be through prophecies, there would not be a need for elections/.
The event came off at the Assemblies of God headquarters in Accra, Wednesday.
Present at the event were various Christian leaders who expressed their support for the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress( NDC), John Dramani Mahama and his running mate.
