Some concerned Presbyterian Youth who are members of Students Network For Nana Addo (STUNNAD) have chastised the Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. for insulting the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rev. Professor Emmanuel Martey.
According to the Concerned Youth, they are disappointed in Kwesi Pratt with the way he chose to describe the Chairman of the Christian Council and also Chairman of the National Peace Council as someone who “lacks the wisdom of God”.
The Pressure Group wondered why Kwesi Pratt sees nothing wrong with the level of corruption in the NDC government, the increasing rate of poverty, youth unemployment and the gross abuse of public office by NDC surrogates; describing him [Pratt] as hypocrite who has forgotten the principles of Socialism.
“It is high time Kwasi Pratt Jnr. remembered the principles of Socialism rather than the Champagne Socialism he is practicing. We admonish Kwasi Pratt to undergo some decency lessons from his colleague, Kwaku Baako, who has discharged himself with much diligence devoid of insults”.
Below Is The Full Statement From The Pressure Group :
We are very much disappointed with Kwasi Pratt Jnr., a senior journalist and Editor of the Insight Newspaper, whom we expected to have known better for his disrespectful comment toward Rev. Professor Emmanuel Martey, the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Chairman of the Christian Council and also the Chairman of the National Peace Council.
The sworn up NDC apostle, Mr. Kwasi Pratt sunk into the gutters in his attempt to do his usual job for the NDC. He is quoted to have said that Rev. Professor Emmanuel Martey “lacks the wisdom of God”.
This was in response to the Rev. Martey’s comment that the NDC government should concentrate on resolving the energy crisis rather than stoking an inexistent religious conflict and that if given the chance could solve the energy crisis in three (3) months with all the loans contracted in the past six (6) years, which is an open truth.
After Kwasi Pratt aided NDC to power through a series of demonstrations under CJA, he sees no wrong and talks no wrong about NDC. With the level of corruption in this government, the increasing rate of poverty, youthful unemployment and the gross abuse of public office by NDC surrogates. It’s unfortunate he has failed to advice his people yet has the guts to insult Rev. Emmanuel Martey, Head of Christian Council.
In fact, his level of hypocrisy has known no bounds since NDC assumed office in 2009 and has even sworn to ensure the victory of NDC in 2016 on an Accra based radio station (Radio Gold) whether good or bad. This show how lower integrity can be exchanged for materialism.
It is high time Kwasi Pratt Jnr. remembered the principles of Socialism rather than the Champagne Socialism he is practicing. We admonish Kwasi Pratt to undergo some decency lessons from his colleague, Kwaku Baako, who has discharged himself with much diligence devoid of insults.
With the quickest of alacrity, we are calling on Kwasi Pratt Jnr. to retract his statement and render an unqualified apology to the outspoken Man of God, Rev Emmanuel Martey and the entire Christian fraternity, and never again to try such an imprudent and disrespectful gesture towards any Religious Leader, being the person a Muslim, a Christian or a traditionalist.
