President of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference, Most Rev Philip Naameh is lamenting why Christians dominate Ghanaian politics yet corruption is still on the rise.

The Metropolitan Archbishop of Tamale during a virtual Eucharistic celebration on Sunday, May 24, 2020, indicated in his sermon that, among all the ungodly acts within the political landscape, corruption happens to be prevalent despite over 70 percent of politicians in the country being Christians.

“In every work, in every place of witness, there is always a great temptation to say yes to wealth. If we take politics as an example, our political landscape is full of Christians. We say we are 71 percent but who are those doing the bribery and the corruption and the stealing of state money either for our families or for our individual needs or wants?” he queried.

He charged Catholics “to be very clear and distinguish ourselves from those who do not know Christ in our behavior.”

Archbishop Naameh added that the novel coronavirus pandemic, on the other hand, has rekindled bonds by bringing together families who were mostly occupied with work and other demanding activities although it has caused some unrest.

“If we have faith, we will see that apart from the unfortunate incidences of infection for a number of Ghanaians and even death, we can make something good out of it. Because COVID-19 has made families come together.”

“There are many families where the whole time or almost the whole time, the children are at school, and mother and father don’t see each other too long in a day, this one goes this way to work, the other one goes that way to work. They come back in a very short time and prepare themselves to go out again for the next day’s business,” he emphasized.

He added that families must come together and build the domestic church and devote themselves to the service of God with one accord like the Apostles.
