The Founder and General Overseer of Perez Chapel, Bishop Charles Agyinasare has listed ten commitments which the presidential candidates of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) must be willing to adhere to if any of them wants to win the upcoming elections.

In a sermon last Sunday, Agyinasare urged the two leading parties to ensure that their policies serve the interest of Ghanaians.

According to him, these ten things, if implemented will build trust between the populace and leadership.

Among the things listed by Agyinasare is a commitment to fight against corruption and tolerance of opposing views as well as zero tolerance for tribal politics.

“Deliver to us a civil service that is non-partisan and will not be afraid when government change.

“Complete and utilise projects started by previous government.

“Tribal politics will not be upheld.

“Government will not spend our money recklessly by incurring judgement debts and excessive borrowing.

“Politicians will not have different rules applied to them than the citizens.

“Team will not insult their opponents.

“The one that wins will be swift to fight corruption.

“The political class will not sideline other pillars of the society.

“They will ensure that our democracy will allow us freedom of speech.

“Whoever is in power will allow a strong opposition TV and radio stations because without strong opposition we are a one-party state.”

Agyinasare has been in the news lately after criticizing the government over its role in the financial sector crisis.

These statements of Agyinasare did not go down well with some NPP officials who replied with some vile attacks.

But the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council on Sunday, released a statement urging the political parties to desist from attacking him.

“The purpose of this statement is to declare our strong support for the Presiding Bishop, who is a long-standing member of the Council and who rose to occupy the very high position of First Vice-President of the Council,” part of the statement read.

GPCC said its leadership “has noted with concern, some of the reactions” to Bishop Agyinasare’s pronouncements in the past one month, observing that some of these reactions have been in the form of “insults, threats of harm, casting of innuendos, political branding etc.,” which the Council condemned as “very unfortunate.”

The ruling government New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said John Mahama's promise to Ghanaian to scrap the E-levy if NDC win power in 2024 is a just a political tlak.

The ruling government New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said John Mahama’s promise to Ghanaian to scrap the E-levy if NDC win power in 2024 is a just a political talk.

According to NPP, the e-levy which started on Sunday, May 1 cannot be abolished by the NDC party.

Just like the one-time premium and the repeal of talk tax that John Mahama and his NDC promised, but failed to implement when they were in power, this promise is just a political talk.”

“In any event, can John Mahama explain the difference between his 17.5% tax on financial transactions and his manifesto pledge to impose a uniform tax on all electronic transactions? Are these measures E-Levy in disguise and does he stand by them?” Communications Director of the NPP Yaw Buaben Asamoa wondered at a press conference in Accra Wednesday.

He stressed: “If we reflect deeply, we will accept, as the records show, that significant change to our political institutions and conduct, economic structure and management and positive social impact, has mostly happened under the NPP’s watch.

“Many very significant national reverses occurred under the six years of John Mahama’s Presidency. He has since been rejected twice in elections. It’s possible his recent address is motivated by self-preservation towards his continued leadership of the NDC into 2024, given that both insiders and external observers are writing him off”.

He added: “Under John Mahamas’ leadership, Ghana will slip backwards into chaotic incompetence. Just like his autobiography tells all, he cannot take decisions. As he says in his book, he will ride this country like a bicycle, out of control and dangerously downhill, merely hopeful of survival.

“The 2024 presidential election is expected to be about two choices: whether we choose to build on the significant gains so far made under President Akufo-Addo with a new presidential candidate from the NPP who comes with his or her own fresh ideas as well or to choose the candidate the NDC are threatening to bring back, John Dramani Mahama.”
