A group calling itself Concerned Youth of Assemblies of God Ghana, has protested against the appointment of Sammi Awuku, National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party to head the National Lottery Authority
READ FULL STATEMENT
‘’We the aforementioned group of the Assemblies of God Church, Ghana have picked a news item making rounds on social media and other news portals that our distinguished Church member, Mr. Sammi Awuku has been pencilled for the National Lottery Authority (NLA) job as the CEO by the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo and find this news very disturbing and insulting against the doctrine of the Assemblies of God Church, Ghana.
This is certainly a bad news for the members of Assemblies of God Church across the Country and indeed Sammi Awuku as the CEO of Lotto would not serve as good example for the Youth of the Assemblies of God Church.
Our Church since its inception frowns on lottery/gambling as it is one of the earthly things that destroys the moral fibre of every society especially the youth, and as such we won’t sit aloof and allow our brother Sammi Awuku to accept this particular appointment as a member of Assemblies of God Church.
We would like to inform the President that if indeed he has our brother at heart and would like to reward him for his dedication, hardwork and commitment towards the NPP then, he should find him a decent appointment that will be acceptable to our church members across the Country.
We are by this release calling on Prophet Albert Asihene-Arjarquah, personal Prophet of Sammi Awuku and the leadership of the Assemblies of God Church, the General Superintendent, Rev. Professor Paul Frimpong Manso to talk to our brother, Mr. Sammi Awuku to reject such ungodly appointment to protect the name and image of our Church and its noble members. The Assemblies of God Church deserves better and that we are ready to thank the President if only he appoints our brother to a more responsible and Christian befitting position.
