Reverend Joseph Anyidana, the National Head Pastor of the Kingdom Life Ministry, has advised political parties to desist from making unproductive criticisms, which he said stifle growth and development.

He said instead, they should fine-tune their programmes and policies to be devoid of political "colours" so as to give the ordinary Ghanaian a life a more meaningful life.

Rev. Anyidana said this on Saturday when he gave a sermon at Zuwera near Binaba in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region as part of activities marking the birth of Christ.

He said it was important that political parties appreciated the countless needs of the citizenry, drew up favourable policies and programmes prudent enough to turn peoples’ situations around.

Rev. Anyidana warned against making unwise and unproductive criticisms especially on the country’s airwaves and deliberate ploys to frustrate incumbent governments.

"Ghana can only realize its developmental goals when as a people we do not practice divisive politics," he said.

He called on government to listen to the views of the ordinary people as well as showed some commitments in improving upon their livelihood.

Pastor Anyidana said Ghanaians must have one voice when it came to matters of national interest and said with strong faith and hope in God, they could live better lives.

He advocated for a two party system with a five year term since it would give political parties enough room to be able to deliver on their promises.

Rev. Anyidana cautioned the congregation against alcoholism and said the temptation to do things excessively during the yuletide is high.
