The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2016 elections, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has urged Ghanaians to pray fervently for him because he needs their prayers to win the December 7 presidential election.
According to him, he is doing what is required of him physically to win the election; however, his victory will be greatly dependent on God’s intervention. Therefore, Ghanaians should pray for him ahead of the elections.
Speaking at a meeting with the elders and representatives of the Omanhene of Kenyasi Number Two, Odeneho Bediako Nsiah Ababio, in the Asutifi North constituency of the Brong Ahafo Region as part of his campaign activities ahead of the elections, Mr Akufo-Addo said: “Pray for me to win the elections. All you need to do is to pray for me to win the elections in order to implement your demands for a university. It is only when I win to become the president that I can implement your demands.”
He added: “Help the parliamentary candidates to also win and represent the constituency and the party in parliament. Vote massively for them so that we (NPP) will have majority in parliament so that your demands will be easily provided.”
The Krontihene of Kenyasi Number Two, who represented the Omanhene at the meeting, assured Mr Akufo-Addo of their prayers, saying: “We are happy that he has visited us to listen to us. It is God who chooses leaders.”
He pleaded with the NPP presidential candidate to fast track the payment of mineral royalties to the chiefs of the area.
“Nana, we plead with you to ensure that the royalties are paid on time. As we speak, for the past three years, the royalties have not been paid. The excuse is that the money is in the Consolidated Fund, but that is a huge challenge for us,” he said.
