You Need Prayers- Christian Council To Fighting MPs
The Christian Council of Ghana has condemned the fight within the Parliamentary chamber on Monday calling on MPs to serve the people instead of turning the chamber into a boxing ring adding that they will pray for Parliament to focus on their main objectives.
A statement released by the Christian counsel reminded the MPs that they were voted for to help citizens and not to box in the chamber.
“We respectfully remind Parliamentarians that debates in Parliament must remain a platform for the exchange of ideas and not an opportunity for confusion and hostility. Ghanaians voted for you to engage in “debate not boxing”,” the statement said
“Our country’s lawmakers must show the way to protect and deepen democratic processes in our governance system. Unfortunately, what we saw in Parliament yesterday is a negation of Ghana’s democratic gains over the past thirty years. What happened yesterday on the floor of Parliament is unacceptable, to say the least, and we condemn such behaviour.
“We, therefore, urge Parliament to as a matter of urgency build consensus to ensure that the nation has a budget to work within 2022. We also urge the leadership of Parliament to put measures n place to prevent future acts like these.
We, therefore, urge Parliament, to as a matter of urgency, build consensus to ensure that the nation has a budget to work within 2022. We also urge the leadership of Parliament to put measures in place to prevent any future incidence of mayhem”, the Council cautioned.
The Christian Council also reiterated its commitment to supporting the legislators with prayers in the discharge of their responsibilities.
