The Methodist Church of Ghana has disassociated itself from comments by the Ex-Methodist Bishop for Obuasi, Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu.

Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu reportedly stated that the 2020 presidential candidate of NDC, Mr John Mahama would not even get the opportunity to come to power to cancel the controversial E-levy policy.

This comment by the former bishop comes after the Former President of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama, has stated that the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration will abolish the controversial e-levy.

Speaking to journalists at the Methodist’s 25th Synod at Mount Zion Methodist Church in Obuasi, Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu mentioned that Mahama’s promise to influence Ghanaians to vote for him.

The former bishop called on the general public to pay the levy so government could use the money for development.

Reacting to the comment in a press release, the Public Relations Directorate of the Methodist Church of Ghana noted that Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu is not the official spokesperson for the church.

“The Methodist Church of Ghana continues to stay unaligned to any political party. While ministers and Members of Church may make comments on their individual basis as fellow citizens of Ghana, that cannot be taken as the official position of the church,” the statement said

Early on, The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwasi Pratt Jnr., has condemned comments by the Ex-Methodist Bishop for Obuasi, Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu, on former President Mahama.

He reiterated that it is the duties of the church to begin ask themselves how they can conduct themselves in such a way that they will hold the center of the churches together.

“I find the comment by the Ex-Methodist Bishop of Obuasi shocking. Pastors are Ghanaians no doubt. They play various roles in the history of Ghana. But one thing that churches should note is that members of the Methodist Church do not add their political affiliations when they are registering to join the church.

“This shows that there are members of the church who support NDC and NPP. The leaders of the church should begin to ask themselves how they can conduct themselves in such a way that they will hold the center of the churches together. So that the church does not become a ground for competition, that’s a charge for the bishop,” Kwesi Pratt added.
