President John Dramani Mahama has promised an end to the country’s power crisis which has plunged the entire country into a frustrating power rationing system.
He made the pronouncement when he joined thousands of congregants at the Perez Chapel in Accra for their 31 st watch night service.
President Mahama said 2015 will the last year of darkness in the nation.
“It will be one in which we banished darkness from our land, and put an end to ‘dumsor’ forever, I knew that would be an interesting prophetic pronouncement.”
The President also called on Ghanaians to be optimistic and eschew sluggishness at work.
Mr. Mahama said he will be guided by his call to serve and create a prosperous nation for the present and future generations.
The President had early on in his New Year’s message to the nation, described 2014 as a year that witnessed several challenges but which were surmounted with a lot of courage.
He asked Ghanaians to be hopeful because 2015 will be a good one.
Meanwhile, millions of Ghanaians kept vigil last night as they crossed over into the New Year 2015- most of them attending church services.
At Perez Chapel International, Presiding Bishop Charles Agyinasare in his sermon declared 2015, a season of fruitfulness.
He had a strong message for the country as it gradually draws closer to the 2016 elections.
“It is our season of fruitfulness…no politician should take the money that is supposed to be used for development of deprived areas for their pocket and personal use.”
He further advised politicians to be committed to politics of ideas in their discourse and avoid politics of insults, reiterating that politics is not a do or die affair.
At the Christian Action Faith Ministry, its founder Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, called on Christians to seek the face of God for His will to be manifested in the lives this year.
“God has in his hands the outcome and the end of 2015 so it doesn’t matter what agenda the enemy has, God’s agenda will override and overturn the enemy’s agenda.
“It doesn’t matter how bad, how difficult and complicated your life has been, please believe that in the midst of all that complication and mess God’s original agenda has not changed, and all it requires of you and I is to bring ourselves into alignment with that original intent and agenda.”
At the International Central Gospel Church, General Overseer Dr. Mensah Otabil called on Ghanaians to make 2015 the year of perfection and not accept mistakes.
Addressing a congregation at the Accra Sports Stadium in the annual watch night service dubbed Crossover, Pastor Mensah Otabil said the nation must move towards facing the challenges not accept excuses.
“I believe if this nation embraces perfection, we will not tolerate the problems we tolerate because if we decide we are going to be better, we will not stay where we are and excuse ourselves with our own problems.
“We will improve our communities, improve our neighborhoods, we will stop selling food on the ground and making human beings buy food on the ground as if we don’t have the image of God.
“Perfection means we have to improve every area of our lives. And I believe that in 2015 God will perfect that which concerns us,” he prayed.
