The Head Pastor of the Alabaster Ministries, Prophet Kofi Oduro, has said Ghana’s Year of Return campaign has promoted sexual promiscuity among the youth.
President Nana Akufo-Addo, while in Washington, D.C. in September 2018, declared and formally launched the “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” for Africans in the Diaspora.
Its purpose was to commemorate the 400th-anniversary of the time when the first 20 West African slaves were brought to the Commonwealth of Virginia, which subsequently became part of the United States of America, thereby initiating one of the most unfortunate and barbaric episodes of human history – the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
Since the launch, Ghana has seen an array of celebrities and diasporans across the globe make their way into the country to unite with Africans on the continent.
While majority of Ghanaians have hailed the impact of the campaign, especially as a boost for Ghana’s tourist industry, Prophet Oduro said it has promoted social vices.
Speaking to his congregation at the 2019 Watch Night service, he said: “I thought that the Year of Return was to promote productivity, reconciliation, restoration; I thought it was something that will restore our values. You should see the indiscriminate sexuality it is introducing into the country; an example is the Labadi Beach, you should see what our brothers from the U.S.A are teaching our youth here. The sad thing is that our leaders are seated and listening to them…”
“I thought that the Year of Return would be one that will make people return from people’s husbands to Christ, from the world to purity and righteousness. I didn’t know it was for people to have indiscriminate sex on the beach, for promiscuity, fornication and adultery, for sniffing of cocaine, for smoking of weed,” he added.
Prophet Oduro cautioned Ghanaians to desist from loving the things of the world and turn to Christ for their salvation.
