Ashanti Regional Minister looks forward to peaceful election

The Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr John Alexander Ackon, has expressed optimism that Ghana would survive and come out victorious in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections.


He, therefore, reminded Christians to revive their responsibility to pray for the peace of the nation and her leaders as the country goes into election this year.

“There is no doubt that the peace we enjoy as a nation is due to the grace of God and the unceasing intercession of the saints of God.

“Let us remember that the battle for peace is not yet over and it will take our prayers to ensure free and fair presidential and parliamentary elections on December 7,” he said.

Mr Ackon was addressing the National Prophetic Conference organised by the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) in Kumasi on the theme: “The Overcoming Power of the Last Days”.

The event, attended by the congregation from the northern sector of the country comprising the Ashanti, Northern, Western, Upper West and Upper East regions, is to seek the face of God and pray for His blessings and grace in this election year.

Mr Ackon challenged Ghanaians to let the power and the grace of God shine in them, wait on Him in all situations and remain steadfast in the Lord.

He commended the National Executive Council of the CACI for organising the conference which, he said, called on Christians to rededicate their lives to God.

Apostle Dr Stephen Kwame Amoani, the Chairman of the CACI, appealed to all political parties to work towards a peaceful election and also accept the election results to ensure national unity and peaceful co-existence.

“We are the people of one nation and, therefore, we must seek to promote peace at all times and in all endeavours,” Apostle Amoani said.

Baffuor Owusu Amankwatia VI, Bantamahene, commended the church for its intervention and prayers for the nation, especially during this electioneering period.

He urged all Christians to continue to pray before, during and after the elections to sustain the peace.

Apostle Michael Nimo, former Chairman of the Church, led the congregation to pray for the nation and her leaders.
