Apostle Opoku Onyinah, Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his appointees to be sexually disciplined.
He gave the advice at the Thanksgiving Service held in honour of the president by the Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panyin at Kyebi on Sunday, January 8, 2017.
According to him, “Sometimes people who are sexually loose are often tempted by men or women and act wrongly, so leaders should be very careful about sexual pleasure and other pleasures, otherwise they would have to turn the truth because of something they have done with somebody either a man or woman, when you go into the Bible, many have fallen short here and that has brought disgrace and disaster upon them.”
Apostle Onyinah who delivered a sermon at the thanksgiving service said, the desire for indiscriminate sexual pleasures will affect the moral status and quality of decisions taken by leaders hence the need for them to be careful.
The sermon which was on the theme, “Covetousness”, Apostle Onyinah called on politicians to refrain from greed, extreme love for money and properties when in power, since it is the cause of high level of corruption in the country. Such traits he noted will lead to corruption which inflict hardship and affects the nation’s growth.
