||Hon. Asamoah Boateng Joins C.O.P for the Royals Conference||

The Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Hon. Stephen Asamoah Boateng, on Wednesday, 26th June, 2024 joined the Pentecost Church of Ghana at Gomoa Fetteh for the Royals Conference.

Speaking on the theme : the Moral Vision; the role of the Traditional Leaders, he called on religious bodies and traditional authorities to not just be citizens rather they should contribute to the social, economic and politicial development of the country.

According to the Minister, the religious bodies and traditional authorities possess unique ability to bring people together, regardless of their lineage and have the power to inspire and unite individuals towards a common goal.

He said just as the ministers of the gospel have been called to serve the people, politicians have also been called to serve the people and together must follow the great commission of winning souls for the Lord while ensuring order and civility.

Hon. Asamoah Boateng touched on a few programmes and policies he has embarked on since his appointment, noting that the Ministry was in the process of securing for the Chiefs a living allowances and Chieftaincy funds that will aid them to contribute to development in their various traditional areas.

For his part, the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost Ghana, Apostle Eric Nyamekye appealed to politicians and traditional authorities to seek the well-being of the citizens first as that contributes to development. He was of the view that providing healthcare, social amenities and educational facilities should not end there rather they should go beyond that, stating that these could lead to the end of some malice like galamsey and some social vices.

He noted that the church was the light of the world hence the need for them to focus on transforming the people by getting involved in the national agenda and contributing effectively to positive change.
