Lighthouse Chapel mounts defence against former pastors

The Lighthouse Chapel International (LCI) Ghana has mounted a defence against six former pastors who have, among other things, sued the church over Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contributions. LCI contends that it operates an extensive lay system, a system that allows individuals to serve as volunteers while maintaining their secular engagements as workers or students. It said there were thousands of LCI pastors who had been volunteers for many years. Again, the church argued that LCI-Ghana was a legally, financially, administratively and governmentally independent organisation from other LCI churches outside the country’s jurisdiction, adding that the Church in Ghana only shared a spiritual relationship with the others worldwide.

It is Needless to Call for Resignation of Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta Over the Sputnik Vaccine: Razak Kojo Opoku Writes

Ken Ofori Attah, Finance Minister The calls for the resignation of the Minister of Finance, Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta over the botched Sputnik Vaccine Supply deal by the elements of the National Democratic Congress is baseless and needless. The agenda of dragging the Minister of Finance into the whole discussion is clearly born out of empty hatred against the person of Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta simply because he is a cousin of President Akufo-Addo. The noise from the NDC elements and the call for the resignation of Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta, Minister of Finance is just an attempt to divert Ghanaians attention from the on going discussion on the Saglemi Housing Project Scandal caused by Mahama and the NDC Administration. "He who comes to equity must come with clean hands". I would like to ask the N...
