The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council has pledged to support the government in its nation-building agenda.
The President of the Council, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, made the pledge during a courtesy call on the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, on Monday to present a communique from the Council’s annual national conference.
“We will share feedback and use our platforms to educate and raise awareness on national issues,” he stated.
He appealed to the government to critically look at issues raised in the communique and address them in these crucial times, especially in the economy.
On his part, the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, said such regular engagements were necessary to finding common grounds on issues of concern to citizens.
He, therefore, encouraged consensus building between government and stakeholders, stating that it was crucial for economic progress.
“The need for constant engagement and consensus building between government and stakeholders within the economy cannot be over-emphasized. Among other things, we need consensus for economic progress.
“Different stakeholders have different interests and objectives. And if each stakeholder sticks to an unyielding position, we can hardly make progress. It is important that we engage regularly to find common ground on these things that matter most to us collectively,” he stated.
He added he was looking forward to more engagements with faith-based and other civil society groups.
