Presidential flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, has urged Ghanaians to pray for the peace of the country before, during and after the upcoming November polls.
Nana Addo pointed out that Ghana’s peace cannot be taken for granted, while adding that it is the responsibility of all Ghanaians to ensure that peace reigns in the country.
According to reports by citifmonline.com, Akufo-Addo made these remarks while speaking at the Grace Baptist Church in Kumasi on Sunday.
We pray that in this difficult year, summed up by insecurity, fear, inexplicable deaths, joblessness, and economic hardships for our people, the Lord protects us, protects Ghana, and ensures that the peace and security of our nation remain intact, even though we are going to have an election. [We pray] that the election, itself, will be conducted in a satisfactory manner whose outcome will bring us together, and not tear us apart,” he prayed.
We could recall that Nana Addo in his New Year’s Message encouraged Ghanaians by saying that even in the midst of all the difficulties, Christ gives us hope.

Continuing, Nana Addo said this year’s election will determine the future of Ghana. He further requested for prayers for the NPP, so that
the Lord extends His hands over us, gives us fellowship and solidarity, and, at the end of the day, give us victory in the 2016 election, so we can give Ghana the good governance she deserves to the glory of the Almighty, and to the benefit of the Ghanaian people.”
He also prayed for strength, wisdom and courage.
…For your servant, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, pray that God gives me strength, courage, wisdom and a good heart so I can be the servant-leader the people of Ghana so ardently require.”
