Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Kwabena Nyamekye, has claimed that Christians are responsible for the increase in corruption menace in the country.
He criticized some Ghanaians, particularly religious leaders and politicians whose actions he said has become the bane of Ghana’s problems.
Speaking at a gathering in Kumasi, Apostle Nyamekye said it was unfortunate that some pastors spend enough time preaching not about the word of God but material things they possess, while some chiefs have also made it a practice to sell one parcel of land to 10 people, describing these acts as disgraceful.
According to him, it is wrong to always blame only politicians for corruption, noting many directors of institutions who are Christians and leaders of their churches are perpetrators of corruption.
He said it is regrettable when 70 per cent of Ghana’s population said to be Christians yet corruption is on the ascendency in the country, making Christians dominate in corruption in the country.
He said amidst the strategies adopted by successive governments, Ghana still lags behind and ranks poorly in the fight against the age-old canker – corruption.
Apostle Nyamekye has thus called for a complete change of mindset to free the system of corruption and selfishness.
