The National Association of Charismatics and Christian Churches [NACCC] has condemned recent attacks on some Ghanaian women in the country.
“NACCC is shocked by attempts to ridicule the achievements of Ghanaian women in the eye of the public,” it said in a statement signed by its General Secretary, Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei
The statement comes on the back a scathing attack launched on the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei by Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy.
“It is against this background that NACCC calls on Ghanaians to disregard the recent statement allegedly made by Hon. Kennedy Agyapong which seems to suggest that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission got her job by offering sexual favours”.
The NACCC has thus asked Mr. Agyapong to retract and apologize to Mrs. Osei and Ghanaians women in general without further delay “if the statement attributed to him is true”.
The NACCC said Ghanaian women have since independence contributed immensely to national development by playing various leadership roles in education, politics, business, sports, religion and commerce despite our male dominated the social-cultural environment.
“These women broke the glass ceiling without compromising on their values. Against all odds single Ghanaian mothers without the help of men have worked hard whether in the market or in the boardroom to put food on the tables for their children, clothes at their back and shelter over their heads.”
It urged Ghanaians, especially politicians to be mindful of their utterances and adhere to the Biblical counseling in Colossians 4:6 as we go into elections on November 7.
As we prepare towards the upcoming elections, NACCC urges all Ghanaians especially politicians to watch their utterances and admonishes all adhere to the biblical Counselling in Colossians 4:6: Colossians 4:6 states:
“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone”
