Bow your head in shame – Majority Chief Whip chides Alan for religious comment

Parliament’s Majority Chief Whip, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, has criticized independent presidential aspirant Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen for suggesting that Ghanaians should elect a Christian president in the upcoming general elections due to the nation’s Christian majority.

Kyerematen made these remarks during the Easter Sunday Convention at the Dr. Thomas Wyatt Assembly of the Church of Pentecost, where he emphasized the importance of choosing a Christian leader who embodies Christlike qualities, stating that he was the most suitable candidate to lead the nation’s socioeconomic transformation.

Annoh-Dompreh, who represents Nsawam-Adoagyiri in the Eastern Region, described Kyerematen’s comments as highly inappropriate and detrimental to Ghana’s development.

“This is backwards, terrible and ugly, to say the least. The NPP has truly ‘suffered’ in bearing and tolerating you over the years. Show me one country globally who has succeeded by using your theory. Alan is clearly not relevant in our ‘modern’ body politics! Bow in shame!” the post said.

The former ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Minister of Trade and Industry said, “As a predominantly Christian nation, as Christians, it is our responsibility that we elect a Christian leader who is also a Christlike leader.”

“If God touches your heart and you vote for Alan Kyrematen, the transformative leader, then I can assure you, as our Lord Jesus did on the cross, promise that ye shall be in paradise with him; you shall also be in paradise when I come into power,” he added.
