"God Has Given Us Choices To Have Control Over, But Our Choices Come Along With Consequences" - NDC

The Newly Elected National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has stressed that God has given his children choices to have control over what they choose, however, their choices come along with consequences.


The Newly Elected National Chairman made these remarks while addressing congregants of Perez Chapel and Ghanaians during a Thanksgiving Service held by the party at the Perez Chapel International in Accra.


Addressing the gathering, Mr. Asiedu Nketia said "God has given us choices to have control over what we choose, but our choices come along with consequences and God has not given us the power to determine the consequences of our bad choices"


"So there are times when you make a bad choice, you must suffer bad consequences and that is where people will say you got the government that you deserve"


"And so we must pray that God will give us a government that we need and not a government that we deserve because of our wrong choices.”


Mr. Asiedu Nketia hinted that the NDC party needs the intervention of the Almighty God as it prepares towards its election of the flagbearer and the 2024 General election.


“We want to continue to plead with the Archbishop and the congregation to continue to pray for us so that we can get through the next phase of the exercise and to pray again, not for the NDC to come to power but to pray for the country to get the right government.”


He also thanked the General Overseer of Perez Chapel International, Archbishop Charles Agyinasare for transforming NDC's bad boy, Sam George, MP for Ningo Prampram Constituency into a good man.


"It is important for the general population to pray for God’s intervention in electing the right leaders and government because bad electoral choices often come with bad consequences"


On his party, Founder of the Perez Chapel International Church, Archbishop Charles Agyinasare said "As leaders, you have to endeavour to protect the public purse if elected into power“


"Those of you who gain political power must not use it to amass wealth for yourselves and your loved ones. You must exorcise the perception that Ghanaian politicians go into public service to steal from the public purse and not to do service to the nation.”


“As agents of development, political parties must make sure they implement sound social and economic policies to improve the living conditions of citizens.”


“As we move into major campaign activities toward the 2024 elections, all parties must endeavour to maintain the peace of the country.”


General Secretary, Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, Former and incumbent Members of Parliament, other bigwigs and some supporters of the party also graced the occasion.
