A renowned Pastor of one of the popular churches (name withheld) whose

community has resulted in a pregnancy.
The pastor despite committing the adulterous act, is asking the woman at
the centre of the entire controversy to convince her legally married
husband to accept responsibility indicating that abortion is a greater
A twitter user only identified as Miss Peters shared the story on her
twitter page which has left social media buzzing over what could have
led both to engage in such an act.
Snippets of information gathered indicate that the woman always leaves
her matrimonial home under the guise of going for an all-night service
but later ends up at a different location with the pastor.
Though the conduct of the woman was reported to the man said to be
currently distraught, he brushed aside those claims indicating that the
woman was only prayerful making those snitching her jealous before being
greeted with the current situation.
Meanwhile, Miss Peters who gave a rundown of the whole scandal said “
Our family friend’s wife is 5 months preg not by the HUSBAND but by her
PASTOR who she always go to 4 prayers. The husband has been crying that
he has not touched her for 5 months, she actually refused him sex cuz of

Former Executive Secretary of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB),
Akrasi Sarpong, has revealed that even though marijuana (wee) is illegal
for the harm it can pose to users, alcohol which is legal, is much more
harmful than marijuana, arguing that jailing users of marijuana does
not address the issue of “harm” caused by the substance.
“If it is about harm, alcohol is more harmful than marijuana. Tobacco is
more harmful than marijuana. It’s is about harm, let’s schedule the
harm…and tackle the harm. If you’re going to deal with the harm related
to the substance, then you shouldn’t be taking them (marijuana users) to
prison. You should be sending them to the hospital,” he told Frema
Adunyame in a documentary titled, “Cannabis: a goldmine or a nation
Ghana’s laws (PNDC Law 236) criminalize marijuana use, import, export
and its possession mainly because of its link to mental disorders and
diseases. But laws make alcohol legal and it is widely available and
According to reports by the World Health Organization, worldwide, 3
million deaths every year result from harmful use of alcohol, this
represents 5.3 % of all deaths in the world.
But many individuals and groups, notably the Rastafari Council, have
called for its legalisation for both medical and recreational use,
consistently making the point that alcohol and tobacco that are much
more injurious to humans are legal while marijuana remains illegal.
Their call has been ignored by successive governments.
In the opinion of Mr Sarpong, our laws must stress the welfare and
health of citizens as espoused by various UN Conventions, noting that
the laws on Marijuana punishes insignificant end users while the
kingpins of the trade who benefit the most are let off the hook.
To better fight the marijuana canker in the country, he suggested that
the drug lords be arrested and put away from society: “Our challenge in
this country is that in the continuum of law enforcement, we touch the
small fries and leave the big guys. Our strategy need to be non-violent
small fries. We need to be sending them to public health. Education.
Prevention. The big guys! We need to arrest them. And put them away for
twenty years. So they can’t control anything. That for me is what is
called ‘smart Law enforcement delivery.”
Several countries have legalised marijuana for various uses such as
export or medical purposes with reported returns of huge revenues.
The BBC Africa Eye team has revealed to GhanaWeb that probing further to
establish a criminal intent by the two lecturers of the University of
