General News of Monday, 7 December 2015
President John Mahama has called for unity in the country ahead of the 2016 general elections, urging Ghanaians to go to the polls with diligence.
The President says it is important for the country to unite with one focus if progress is to be achieved.
Communications Minister Edward Omane-Boamah spoke on the President’s behalf at Action Chapel International’s IMPACT 2015.
“The storms will come, but we will definitely persevere and triumph. Let us also remember that His Excellency the President is asking us to test before we trust particularly as we move into the year 2016,” Dr Omane-Boamah said.
President Mahama was invited as a guest of honour at the programme, however, he delegated the Communication Minister to speak on his behalf.
The President had just returned from the COP 21 conference in Paris.
The President said Ghanaians must remain strong even in the midst of trials.
“Let us also remember that unity is key, so that together we can work as one nation bound by a common destiny to transform the structure of the Ghanaian economy to develop love among ourselves and ensure that we move from a lower income country to an advanced human society where there would be no hunger, poverty and where we shall continue to develop infrastructure,” Dr Omane-Boamah told the congregation amid a rapturous applause.
The President also asked Ghanaians to pray for the clergy in the country to enable them deliver on their mandate.
