Thumps up for government’s drive to grow economy

By Josephine Nyarkoh, GNA

Kumasi, Aug 11, GNA – The government has
received thumps up for its drive to grow the economy through ambitious
agricultural revolution and industrialization.

The Methodist Bishop of Kumasi, the Right
Reverend Christopher Nyarko Andam, said this was a right step and pledged the
church’s strong support.

He said as a church, they were not only
interested in the spiritual healing and development of the people but equally
eager to see them, become economically empowered.

He was speaking at a press conference held in
Kumasi to herald this year’s annual prophetic and healing convention of the
diocesan church.

The five-day convention would be held under
the chosen theme, “Expanding the Kingdom of God: the Holy Spirit factor”.

The goal is to assist its members to renew
their faith and promote their spiritual growth.

The event would also provide the platform to
educate the church members on their civic responsibilities and motivate them to
find space to contribute to the development of the nation.

Bishop Andam said the church found it
heartwarming the government’s determination to create jobs and wealth, and
ensure food security through its “one district, one factory policy” and
“Planting for food and jobs” initiative.

He said they were absolutely convinced that
the successful implementation of these “wonderful plans” would help to make the
economy more robust and resilient.

He indicated that they had embraced the agenda
for skills development and job creation by implementing various interventions
under the Methodist Development and Relief Services to create employment for
the youth.

He added that the church through collaboration
with the Rural Enterprises Programme, had established a rural technology
facility at Offinso, to support members to go into self-wage employment.
