Pentecost Church Chairman, Apostle Eric Nyamekye Warns Against Monetization of Democracy in Ghana

At a meeting with prominent political figures, including Vice President Dr. Mahamud Bawumia, Speaker of Parliament Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, and Chief Justice Her Ladyship Gertrude Torkonoo, the Chairman of the Pentecost Church of Ghana , Apostle Eric Nyamekye raised concerns about the increasing monetization of democracy in Ghana.

In a speech themed “Live and work for the good of people,” the Chairman advised the leaders to prioritize the well-being of the people they serve. He emphasized that those who aspire to leave a good legacy must dedicate themselves to serving humanity.

Addressing the parliamentarians present, the Chairman expressed concern that the monetization of democracy is making it difficult for good leaders to emerge. He warned that if the trend continues, only individuals with substantial financial resources will be able to secure electoral victories, regardless of their qualifications or integrity. “If we cannot follow American democracy, let’s stop it and design something that will help this nation”, he added.

The Chairman criticized the practice of political figures distributing gifts such as cutlasses and lanterns to constituents in exchange for votes. He argued that such tactics are deceptive and undermine the true purpose of democracy. He urged the leaders to invest in the well-being of their constituents rather than resorting to cheap handouts.

The Chairman emphasized the need to critically examine the values and principles that guide political actions. He called on the leaders to consider the long-term consequences of their choices and to work towards building a democratic system that serves the interests of all Ghanaians.

The Chairman’s speech resonated with many observers who share concerns about the increasing influence of money in Ghanaian politics. His call for a more just and equitable democracy has sparked a national conversation about the future of governance in the country.
