The Chairperson of the Kumasi Presbytery of the Global Evangelical Church, Reverend Joseline Fugar, has added her voice to the growing corruption in the country. Many religious leaders who have been silent for some time now have begun speaking because they have the platform which can access a lot of people. The culture of silence which many see as the doom of Ghana is gradually waning from the system.
Reverend Joseline Fugar took the issue of corruption from the normal NDC/NPP blame game to a different level. Reverend Joseline Fugar was of the view that, the Church must be blamed fully for the ongoing and high rate of corruption.
“I blame you(the church). It is endemic and that is the reason why I think that in a way, we have failed even as a church.
We have failed to bring people the true gospel of Christ; that gospel that transforms human beings. The gospel that transforms them so that their lives are transformed that they know what is right and what is wrong”, she lamented.
She went ahead to decry the high level of corruption in the country.
“Corruption is like, it’s gone through the whole fiber of society; from the messenger right through to the head. Everywhere you go, there is a level of corruption”
