He said those in authority should strive to be instruments of tolerance, peace and unity and give of their best to the country as Christ did on the cross.
‘Christ reconciled man unto himself through the sacrifices he made on the cross,’ adding it will take the personal sacrifices of every Ghanaian to build a prosperous nation.
Dr Tetteh asked the President who was represented at the function, to seek the face of the Lord in every decision he takes.
