“I DON’T THINK IT’S IN MY PLACE TO DEFINE THEIR [GOVERNMENT] PERFORMANCE; THAT IS NOT WHAT I DO
The founder and leader of Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has called on Ghanaians to take a look at their personal economic circumstances now and compare it to their earlier years so they can properly judge the performance of the Akufo-Addo government.
“I think that at the end of the day, success again is defined from the kingdom perspective as the impact you’ve made on people for good, so, I think that everybody should just look at their lives and look at where they were before and where they are now to determine the performance of the government,” the Archbishop responded to a question on the performance of the government in an interview on Accra-based Joy FM on Friday, 4 October 2019.
WE’VE SEEN DIFFERENT TRYING TIMES, NO SITUATION IS PERMANENT. THEY COME AND THEY GO, EVEN TSUNAMI COMES AND GOES. WE’RE HOPEFUL THAT TIMES WILL GET BETTER FOR EVERYBODY.”
“I don’t think it’s in my place to define their [government] performance; that is not what I do. But again, for everybody hearing the sound of my voice out there, everybody should judge for themselves and look at where they were before and where they are now and to determine and then let’s look at our environment, the country, the cities, the communities, and be able to define and to judge and come to the conclusion ourselves, so, I think that everybody should judge for themselves.”
Asked if the current economy has affected his church, Archbishop Duncan-Williams said these are “trying times for tithes and offerings and everything.”
He continued: “It’s understood by the present crisis that people are going through, some don’t have jobs and everything, so, definitely it hasn’t been the same.
“And we’ve been here also before during the HIPC time and during the times we used to buy yellow corn. We’ve seen different trying times, no situation is permanent. They come and they go, even tsunami comes and goes. We’re hopeful that times will get better for everybody.”
