Election Prediction by Pastors A Recipe For Chaos – Dr. Nyamekye
According to the spiritual leader, the prediction of elections are gradually becoming a norm by some church leaders, stressing that the situation if not checked, could lead to public disorder.
“Our constitution permits freedom of speech. I have heard so many people prophesying victory for the NPP while others are prophesying victory for the NDC. God cannot be an author of confusion. The same God cannot give divergent views. As to whether what they are saying is good or bad, I think they have the right to say what they want to say.”
“But if you to go by the social barometer for judging good character, then you will say it is not so well, it is not so good and it is not a good character. Why so because apparently, you are brewing tension as well. Reason being that if somebody is declared as the winner by a prophet and the prophet has following and the following believe that what the prophet said is true and the EC also declares another person winner – if the prophet’s following are headstrong, they can start or foment trouble.”
“So, as for public declaration as to whoever is going to win the election, I personally will not endorse it,” he noted when briefing journalists on Friday about the church’s upcoming national event dubbed ‘The Experience’ conference.
Dr. Boadi Nyamekye commenting further on the issue charged spiritual leaders to refrain from predicting elections and instead pray for post-elections where there abound lots of troubles if God does not intervene.
