Rt. Reverend Baffour Asamoah-Agyei, the Methodist Bishop of the Obuasi Diocese, has revealed that the comments made by the former Bishop of the Obuasi Diocese, Bishop Stephen Richard Bosomtwe-Ayensu do not represent the stand of the Methodist Church.
Speaking to Obarima Kwadwo Gyamfi on Ghana Nti Morning Show on Aseda FM, the Bishop said that the official mouthpiece of the Methodist Church is the Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo. He is the only one who speaks for the church.
He added that Bishop Ayensu, though a Bishop of the Methodist Church, has the right to voice his concerns about issues in the country and it does not represent the stand of the church.
The Obuasi Diocesan Bishop made this statement when he was asked about the statement made by his predecessor last week.
Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu, past Methodist bishop of Obuasi, lashed out at the former President, John Dramani Mahama for his resolve to cancel the much talked about electronic transactions levy when he assumes office in 2025.
The outspoken Bishop believes Mahama wouldn’t even come to cancel it. He further expressed disappointment in him for making such utterances in an attempt to sway voters. He further reiterated that in the predicaments the country finds itself it will take only wise economic decisions to get us out for which the levy it’s being taken from the citizenry to solve it.
