Joseph Yamin, a former deputy Ashanti Regional Minister has expressed disappointment in be a Presbyterian under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo.
His comment comes after Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rt. Rev. Prof. J.O.Y. Mante for tagged critics of government’s agenda 111 project as witches.
Rev Mante said it’ll take only a witch to oppose such project considering the mass poverty and poor health infrastructures around the country.
“My biggest surprise Mr. Chairman, is that with the poverty that we live in, someone offers to build 111 health centres and some people are still angry. Is this not a case of witchcraft? Because I can never understand, we allow politics to eat too much into our affairs,” he said at the opening of an upgraded health facility belonging to the Church – the Assin Praso Presby Hospital.
However, Mr Yamin believes the church has been turned into a political ground noting that the moderator’s speech was obviously written for him from the presidency.
He noted that critics of the government’s agenda 111 are only concerned about its feasibility and not its downfall.
