Junior Prophet Stephen Kontoh, Head pastor of African Faith Church, Twifo Kotokye
THE HEAD Pastor of the African Faith Church (AFC), Junior Prophet Stephen Kontoh has called on Ghanaians to live and preach peace in the lead-up to the December 7 general elections.
According to him, the only way the country could unite and defeat violence was to accept and live in harmony with each other irrespective of the outcome of the elections.
Prophet Kontoh made the call at Twifo Kotokye in the Twifo Attimorkwa District in the Central Region over the weekend at this year’s Christmas convention of the AFC.
The event brought together church members in the district to Twifo Kotokye to pray to God for His protection through the rest of 2020 and the coming years.
Addressing the congregants, Prophet Kontoh charged Ghanaians, especially the youth, to desist from any attempt to forment trouble before, during and after the elections. “Immediately you cast your vote, go home so you don’t engage in any trouble because if you don’t agree with someone, that doesn’t warrant you to fight or throw a stone at the person.
“What I am saying is that, let’s all preach peace because we don’t have any country apart from Ghana. So during and after the elections, we must ensure peace,” he stated. Prophet Kontoh said in every race, there should be a winner and all the 12 Presidential contestants could not win because there must be only one winner. “So in this elections, it is only one person who would be crowned winner and we must all support that person with prayers,” the man of God said.
The church thanked God for His protection during the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that though Ghana lost some lives, the country did relatively better than other countries in fighting the virus. Prophet Kontoh was called to the Ministry of God in 1965. He led the congregation to pray for the country, a peaceful elections and an accident- free Christmas season.
