The Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho was elated by the gesture and stressed that it is always a blessing to invest in the work of God. He added that a support for the needy and vulnerable in the society is a support to government, the society, the world and God. He then appealed to Ghanaians, particularly church leaders to pray seriously for the country to avert all forms of terror attacks against the country.
