The Head Pastor of New Tafo-Akyem Rhema Assemblies Of God Church, Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Odame Obuobi, has stated that, national development should not be the responsibility of the Central Government or people holding Political and Traditional offices alone but all.

He emphasized that, the world will be a better place if everyone’s hand is put on the deck concerning development.

“We must not always rely on the Central Government, everyone is responsible for the development of his or her immediate community and the nation as a whole.
Government is doing it’s best with flagship policies like Free Senior High School (FSHS) and others but the success of it depends on all of us as well.

As Christians, problem solving is one of our values and must be practiced accordingly hence this bridge construction by the Church.” Stated Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Odame Obuobi.

The Minister made this statement during the the commissioning and handing over ceremony of a 9 x 20 ft foot bridge to the people of Abominam, Asikafo Amantem Community in Akyem New-Tafo on Sunday 30th January, 2022 at Rhema Assemblies Of God Church, Akyem New-Tafo, Eastern Region of Ghana.

The seventy-eight thousand, seven hundred and fifty Ghana Cedis ( GHc 78,750.00) concrete foot bridge, according to Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Odame Obuobi, was funded from the church’s 2020/2021 annual harvest supported by other benevolents, a gesture he classifies as “giving back to the community by the church as the Lord pleases”.

He further, admonished people in helms of affairs in government to shun corrupt attitudes which has being the major setback to development in the country and help expedite development with dignity, transparency and accountability to the people.

Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Odame Obuobi on behalf of the Church, expressed appreciations to all who contributed to making the foot bridge construction a success and called on all well meaning Ghanaians, Civil Society and benevolents to help finalise the bridge with street lights and barricades for security reasons.

Rev Charles Darko Yeboah, popularly called Ozey, Principal of Only Believe Senior High School, speaking as the chairman of the ceremony, volunteered to fix the barricades for the service of God and humanity.

He called on all, to emulate the gesture of Rhema Assemblies Of God Church for community development.

It could be recalled that, flooding from the Abomina River during rainy season makes it difficult for the school children, market women, church members and all who ply the route.

The church constructed a wooden bridge but could not last the test of time and became a life threatening situation, as people including school children fall, since the woods get worn-out and break with minimal force when stepped on, a situation that injured scores of people.
