National Overseer of the Church of God of Prophecy Bishop Franklin Ferguson warned yesterday that the country is in danger of becoming the “Wild, Wild West” if the crime rate continues to increase.
Bishop Ferguson’s comments came as he delivered the national address at the closing of the Church of God of Prophecy’s 2014 Conclave at the Church of God Tabernacle on East Street.
“There is no question that crime in this country is beyond the level of acceptability,” he said. “It is indeed ruining the lives of many and is threatening the life blood of our national economy.”
Bishop Ferguson applauded the efforts of the government and the Ministry of National Security in fighting crime but he reminded that there is no excuse for not getting the job done.
“You have been elected and are being paid to do what you said you have the ability to do,” he said.
