The opposition New Patriotic Party says their defeat in the 2008 general elections was a blessing in disguise.
According to the campaign manager of the NPP, Boakye Agyarko, the loss suffered by the NPP in 2008 has given Ghanaians the real opportunity to assess the two parties and to know which of them CAN best serve the interest of the country.
Speaking at a news conference to announce the party’s first ever national interdenominational prayer session, Mr Agyarko said he was confident Ghanaians’ assessment of the Mills administration will bring the NPP back to power.
It was the wish of the NPP to win the 2008 elections but God, in “His own infinite wisdom”, did not grant that wish for a reason, Mr Agyarko stated.
“But I believe God did not grant us because he needed to expose the NDC for what they are – hypocrites, liars, thieves of the first order. Otherwise how does a president who has declared himself righteousness allow such perfidy of taking the nation’s money to one person”
Mr Agyarko went Biblical and said God works in a mysterious way, and asked people to remain patient for God’s appointed time, professing that unanswered prayer “does not mean He (God) has not heard you, but He will grant you that wish in His time.”
Boakye Agyarko said the prayer session would be used by the party to pray for peace ahead of their campaign for the December elections.
