Nana Akufo-Addo at the Calvary Charismatic Church
The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has admonished Christians in the country to renew their faith in the future of Ghana, which, despite the difficulties she currently faces, has a bright future under the right management.
Nana Akufo-Addo is urging Ghanaians not to despair in the face of hardships and difficulties, assuring that “there is hope for a brighter Ghana. What we need is that, with the help of the Almighty, our nation remains stable, united and at peace.”
The NPP flagbearer made this known when he worshipped at the St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church, the Grace Baptist Church, and the Calvary Charismatic Church, all in Kumasi, on Sunday February 21, 2016.
At the Grace Baptist Church, Nana Akufo-Addo explained that he was in Kumasi, on Saturday, February 20, for the funeral of the late wife of Mr. Antwi Adjei, the Director of Protocol of the NPP, and a veteran activist of the party. It being Sunday, he, therefore, decided to fellowship with several Christian communities in Kumasi.
He congratulated Rev. Dr. Osei-Wusu, who preached the sermon at the Grace Baptist Church, Amakom, Kumasi, for his inspiring and well-delivered sermon.
Describing 2016 as a “difficult year for us in Ghana, which will lead to the choosing of a new government for the people”, Nana Akufo-Addo asked for prayers for Ghana, for the NPP, and for himself.
Nana Akufo-Addo, earlier on Sunday, went to his traditional place of worship, the St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church, at Fante Newtown, Kumasi, where the congregation prayed for God’s strength and wisdom for him in the run-up to the November elections.
The NPP flagbearer further attended the morning service at the Calvary Charismatic Church, at Ayigya, where the Founder and Senior Pastor of the Church, Pastor Ransford Obeng, in his sermon, bemoaned the emergence of “election year Christians”, who plague the people with suffering once they secure power.
Nana Akufo-Addo, in his remarks to the congregation, thanked Pastor Obeng for the opportunity to interact with the congregation, and reiterated, to the amusement of the congregation, that “I am not an election year Christian, but a well-established Christian who worships regularly at the Ridge Church in Accra, and, if I find myself in Kumasi, at the St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church.”
He appealed to the congregation to “try me this time. This is my third attempt, and I can assure you that, when you give me the chance, I will, with the guidance of the Almighty, not disappoint you.”
