Reverend Dr. Cyril Fayose, General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) has said every Ghanaian has a role to play in reviving the economy to recover from the global post-COVID-19 shocks.
Rev. Dr. Fayose who said this at the opening of the 12th Ho East Presbytery of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana (EPCG) at Ziavi Dzogbe in the Ho Municipality during a three-day Synod on the theme " Revive us again, o Lord, heal us”; asked Ghanaians to stop blame-games and forge ahead for recovery.
The Synod is being attended by over 100 delegates from all the 29 Pastoral districts in the Presbytery made up of Pastors, Catechists, Presbyters, representatives from all the church's groups and second and tertiary institutions.
Rev. Dr. Fayose who was the Guest of honor noted that ordinary Ghanaians were also holding the economy to ransom by their nefarious activities not only politicians.
On the environment, Dr. Fayose noted that the degradation of the forest and other unfriendly environmental practices were the cause of erratic rainfall patterns, global warming, and the destruction of the ozone layer.
"According to the experts there are more plastics in the sea than fishes.," he said.
The General Secretary appealed to the Church to be at the forefront of planting trees and the proper disposal of plastic wastes.
He said the mandate of the CCG was not only to unite Churches but also to be a voice for the vulnerable in society and urged member Churches to take up the care of the "severely mentally ill" in their localities.
