Life has thought us that each person is a unique expression
of God and each person is sacred, worthy important.

As such, no one should allow political and ideological differences
to stop them from loving and trusting one another with faith even when they
disagree in ideology.

At least, that is what members of the Parliamentary Christian Fellowship from both the new and old parliaments have demonstrated that indeed we are one people who can work together for our nation.

The event was a bible and governance conference, a Christian
platform that seeks the interest of Christian politicians and the promotion of
the kingdom of God.

 The group does this by
drawing the attention of Christian politicians to their core mandates and identities
as believers.

It is also a platform where honest and hardworking Christian
politician who have distinguished themselves for the work of God and country
are rewarded.

The 2019 conference which was held at Parliament House’s Job
600 complex on March 7, was under the theme, “corruption is our demon which Christian must unite and support leaders
to arrest”. 

Present at the conference was Apostle Joseph Assabil, an Executive Council member of the Church Of Pentecost who represented the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost.

Other dignitaries who graced the conference were Rev Dr
Abbeam Ampomah Danso, Counsellor of Abbeam University; Rev Dr Engineer Benjamin
Ayikwei, Head Pastor of Trailblazers Christian Ministry; Hon Elizabeth K.T.
Sackey, Deputy Greater Accra Regional Minister; Hon. Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah, MP
for Ho West; Hon. Ahmed Ibrahim, MP for Banda; Hon Rev Helen Adjoa Ntoso, MP for
Krachi West; Hon Rev John Ntim Fordjour; MP for Assin South, and many other members
of parliament.

Hon. Elizabeth K.T. Sackey the Deputy Greater Accra Regional
Minister informed participants of the conference that they could do politics
without being corrupt.

She noted that generating bad news disgraces one’s faith, church
and family members as well as other who respect you.

Hon. Elizabeth K.T. Sackey received the Most Distinguished
Service Award in the second edition of the bible and governance conference.

 She became the second
person to receive such an award from the organisers.

Her award was handed to her by   Bishop Dr. Fred Korankye Mensah.

The host pastor of the programme and the president of the
Bible and Governance Ghana Rev. Jonathan Yaw Dokpah Blay who has been with the Parliamentary
Christian Fellowship for the past 12 years congratulated Madam Hon. Elizabeth  and other awardee  for their service to mother Ghana and
Christianity in Ghana.

 He urged all
Christian brothers and sisters in politics to emulate and take cue from the
receipients by engaging in politics without insult and violence.

Other members who received the award include Hon. Ahmed
Ibrahim, MP for Banda, Hon Rev Helen Adjoa Ntoso, MP for Krachi West, Hon. S.K.
Boafo former Ashanti Regional Minister, Apostle Opoku Onyinah and Hon.
Gbediame.
