A Muslim can lead Ghana and make it better – Rev Anthony Cudjoe

In a statement that has sparked discussions across Ghana’s religious spectrum, the Senior Pastor of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) Calvary Temple, Rev. Anthony Cudjoe, has emphasized the possibility and potential benefits of having a Muslim leader govern Ghana.

During a recent sermon at his church, Rev. Cudjoe challenged the notion that only a Christian leader could effectively govern Ghana, asserting that a Muslim leader could also lead the country to greater heights.

“Sometimes you hear Ghanaians who say we want a Christian leader. Listen, a Muslim can lead this nation and Ghana could be better. If God wants to do it, he will use anything,” stated Rev. Cudjoe.

Drawing parallels from biblical history, the senior pastor referenced the story of Cyrus, a Persian king who was instrumental in the restoration of Israel. Despite not being of Jewish descent, God called Cyrus is anointed.

In a separate development, Alan Kyeremanteng, a former member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who is now running as an independent candidate for the presidency, made a strong assertion during his speech at the Easter Sunday Convention held at the Dr. Thomas Wyatt Assembly of the Church of Pentecost.

He emphasized that, given Ghana’s predominantly Christian population, the country should elect a Christian leader as president in the upcoming 2024 elections.

“As a predominantly Christian nation, as Christians, it is our responsibility that we elect a Christian leader who is also a Christlike leader,” he stated while touting himself as the man to transform the country.

“If you are moved by God to vote for Alan Kyerematen, the leader of transformation, then I can assure you, as our Lord Jesus did on the cross, that you shall be in paradise with him. You will also be in paradise when I assume power,” he declared, eliciting applause.

It is notable that the current flagbearer of the NPP is Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, who practices Islam.

In contrast, Alan is a Christian, as is another prominent contender, former President John Dramani Mahama, who leads the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the electoral contest.

  1. Do we really understand democracy. Its is better for people to express their opinions freely and mobilise votes openly. After all we don’t know what people really vote for. A holier than thou hypocritical political leadership in both the Democratic and Republican Party that swept blunt and realistic Trump into power. Someone will one day break the myth and speak truth that resonates with the majority, to sweep away political correctness.

  2. Muslims are Ghanaians and can also rule Ghana but not Mamudou Bawumia of NPP an Akan dominated party that had committed political crimes and looting of state coffers.The Akans are using Bawumia as a front to cover their criminal record in power during the last eight years. Ghanaians will be the worst fools on earth if Bawumia become president of Ghana. Even God will never listen to our prayers again.

    Ghana is a Secular State. In our short history as a Sovereign Nation, previous as well as the current Constitutions have all been proclaimed as such.
    Religion is a private believe within Individuals which must not be allowed to creep into our national politics. But across the parapet, I can vision a situation where religious fundamentalists are creeping religion into Politics by stealth, ( National Cathedral saga is a case in point ).
    Now they are at it again, shooting from the hip about Christian or Muslim Presidency. This is DANGEROUS and it must stop. Religion and Tribalism are two of kits inside the toolbox the African Enemy. This security threat is often ignored by the African leadership. Through their agents, the enemy would rather piss in than piss out inside religious establishments.
    In their Wisdom, our Constitutional Thinkers framed the Document as SECULAR and so must it remain in perpetuity.
