Addressing the congregation of the Pentecost International Worship Center (PIWC) during the grand commissioning of its church building at Asokwa, the MCE said the threats of terrorism was real as stated by the national security advisor.

He stressed that some neighboring countries including Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast have experienced the threats and some attacks from terrorists.

Some of these activities, Chief Akwannuasah noted, have happened at church gatherings with one happening in Burkina Faso some months ago.
The MCE said these signs have clearly shown that anything was possible in every country in Africa where it seems the terrorists are targeting.

Chief Akwannausah therefore asked the church to take heed to the caution by the national security and constantly conscientize its congregation about the threats and intensify measures to prevent any attack on their premises.

The MCE urged church members to stay alert and active whenever they visited the church for service and observe movements of people especially strangers on their premises.

‘’As church members we are to carefully observe movements of people, especially strangers and alert those in authority, especially persons trained in security about anything they suspect to be abnormal or strange. So when you see something say something’’, Chief Akwannuasah admonished.

Speaking with the Media after the dedication of the PIWC Temple, Apostle Joseph I.T Nuertey of Asokwa PIWC thanked God for enabling the church to build to his glory.

He commended the church members for toiling and sowing from their difficult conditions to ensure the building was put up for God.

Apostle Nuertey assured the congregation of God’s blessings for the generous giving and donations.

‘’God will not overlook your generous act of kindness and your dedication to the progress of his Kingdom’’, the PIWC leader assured.
