Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson, has made a deprecating comment directed at the Church of Pentecost for proclaiming a 3-day fasting and countenance initiative in efforts to normalize the value of the Ghana cedi, as it continuously proceeds to plummet in terms of its value.
As per the actress, petitioning God during times of hardship is a commendable step by clergymen but at the same time, there’s the requirement for the church to utilize their medium and influence to speak on behalf of their congregation for better life standards.

The displeased female personality is of the view that the church rather takes advantage of its leverage to further its parochial goals.
Miss Forson is of the perception that the church no more adheres to an ethical code, or inherently think about all people as a whole like they did previously.
Based on her standpoint, circumstances are different and nobody ought to anticipate that affectionate consideration and care of individuals come from the church.
Lydia Forson made this assertion on her Twitter page.
As their method for helping the public authority stop the deterioration of the Ghana cedi against the US Dollar, the Church of Pentecost has called on its members to observe 3 days fasting and prayers.
Her words as expressed towards this unmitigated endeavor, read; “Imagine the church actually took a positions to HOLD government accountable beyond prayers.”
“Imagine the church used its power/influence to get our government to do right by its people.”
“Instead the church (most) use their position to only advance itself and agenda. Shame.”
