First Sky Group hosts 21st anniversary thanksgiving


First Sky Group, a Ghanaian holding entity comprising subsidiaries with interests in hospitality, construction, insurance, banking, commodities trading and bitumen processing,  hosted its 21st Anniversary Thanksgiving Service on January 14, 2024 at the Accra International Conference Centre.

The event, which was on the theme ‘The Faithfulness of the Lord Never Ceases’ (Lamentations 3:22-23), was graced by ministers of state, Members of Parliament, clergy, traditional rulers, staff and management of the company heads of institutions.

The Executive Chairman of the First Sky Group, Eric Seddy Kutortse, speaking at the event, said God’s faithfulness has been experienced in every aspect of the company, hence the need to give thanks to Him.

Mr. Kutortse called for a legislative instrument to support organ transplant in Ghana. He said the First Sky Group, since 2016, had supported free dialysis for more than 300 patients with GH¢32million.

He urged Ghanaians to promote peace and stability during this year’s elections. “Let us – with resolute energies, firm effort, fortitude and purpose – preserve our collective peace, mindful that we are one people, one nation with a common destiny,” he added.

Mr. Kutortse said for the next two years, the company intended to build 50 church buildings in the rural areas, targeted at eliminating churches in classrooms and under trees.

Preaching the sermon, the Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church, Ghana, Most Rev. Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo, said God is dependable and His love is steadfast while urging Christians to count on Him in time of challenges. “God’s faithfulness is sure, reliable; He does not forget, fail and does not change or disappoint,” he added.

Rev. Boafo commended the company for their continuous corporate social responsibility for mankind and the less-privileged in the communities. “His faithfulness never ceases, the Lord loves a cheerful giver,” he added.

The General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Ghana, Rev. Dr. Stephen Yenusom Wengam, commended the staff and management of the First Sky Group for their contribution to the country’s economy and dedication to God in thanksgiving over the years. “Many started with God and when their business is booming they have forgotten God; but for 21 years, the First Sky Group Company is consistent in thanksgiving,” he said.

He urged the staff to work hard to increase productivity. As part of the occasion, prayers were said for the nation, leaders of the country and the First Sky Group Company.
