Rt. Reverend Professor J.O.Y Mante, a Ghanaian theologian and a Presbyterian moderator has been trending for some days now and this time for what most Ghanaians have described as a bad and divisive comment. This follows after the moderator made comments about the newly initiated Agenda 111 of President Akuffo-Addo to facelift the health sector of the country.
Recall, this policy caught the attention of most Ghanaians who criticised the project over the failure of the President to complete other uncompleted health facilities left in the bushes. While the government has taken delight for the project, other Ghanaians have also shared opposite views. Some even doubt the feasibility of the policy.
However, Rt. Rev Professor J.O.Y Mantey commenting on the project descended on the critics of the Agenda 111. According to the moderator, people who are speaking against the projects are witches and wizards. It seems his comment did not go down well with Ghanaians who have blasted him and called on him to apologise to Ghanaians.
Recall, yesterday on th Alhaji and Alhaji show, the Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt registered his resentment over the aforementioned issue and indicated that he would deliver the Revrend if he was a Pastor. He also indicated that his comments are dangerous to the effort made to build democracy in Ghana.
The outspoken Journalist stated emphatically that the comments made was partisan and has the tendency to cause division among Ghanaians and supporters of the parties. On the background of the comment by Kwesi Pratt, I, by this article call on Ghanaians to remember the moderator in prayers today when they go to church.
It is worthy to note that, comments about national issue can plunge the nation into chaos if they are unpleasant. This is wake up call to every Ghanaian to be cautious of their utterances.
