Kumasi, June 22,(GNA) – Reverend Ransford Obeng, Founder and General Overseer of Calvary Charismatic Centre (CCC), has stated that Africa needed generational thinkers to promote its development.
Rev. Obeng who was delivering a sermon on the topic: « Generational Thinkers, » during a church service in Kumasi stated that developments in African countries had been held back, saying that had therefore brought about sufferings to the people for lack of generational thinkers.
He said Ghanaians were not left out because the socio-economic sufferings in the country had become unbearable for the citizenry, and that almost everything was practically not going well.
Rev. Obeng observed that the Ghanaian situation could be attributed to greed, mismanagement, corruption and selfishness, by the leaders and certain individuals.
He said a lot of parents and leaders had died with their vision, which could have been very helpful to their families and the nation in general, but because of greed, they died without passing their talents and knowledge on to anybody, not even their children.
Rev. Obeng alleged that adults, especially those in leadership positions, did not think about the future generation, hence their penchant for money, resulting to wastage of national financial resources which could have been used to harness the potentials of the youth, and train them as future leaders.
He, therefore, appealed to African leaders to place premium on the value of their citizens, by formulating policies and programmes to ensure training, and retraining the youth on employable skills, to prevent the selling of plastic bags and dog chains on streets in the cities and urban centres.
The CCC, a Christian religious organization is headquartered in Kumasi, with branches all over the country, and in some countries overseas.
