Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, yesterday reaffirmed his determination and that of his party to do everything possible to ensure that the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections pass without any incident that will disturb the nation’s peace and stability.

“We believe the peace, unity and stability of the nation is more important than our individual and personal agenda. We have stood for peace at all times in this country and will stand for it again,” he assured.

Nana Akufo-Addo was speaking at an interdenominational Special Prayer Session organized by the NPP at the Essipong Stadium in Sekondi to commit the party’s 2012 campaign into the hands of God.

The NPP also used the session to pray for peaceful elections in December and national prosperity, while committing its presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, the party’s parliamentary candidates and the leadership into the care of God.

Nana Akufo-Addo challenged all those who have something to do with the December 7 general elections to conduct their activities in a transparent manner “so that both the victors and the losers will readily accept the true verdict of the people,” adding, “that is the surest way to ensure the peace we are all yearning for.”

The NPP presidential candidate urged Ghanaians to always seek peace in all their undertakings, and refrain from all acts that have the potential to mar the nation’s peace.

Nana Addo appealed to the nation’s pastors and priests to always remember him in prayers “and ask God to give me the wisdom and compassion so that when Ghanaians give me the mandate I will be able to deliver to enhance the welfare of the Ghanaian people.”

Touching on the December 7 elections, Nana Addo reminded the electorate: “This year’s election will be a time for choice between stagnation and progress; a choice between non-performance and performance and a choice between corruption and integrity.”

Nana Addo was optimistic that “Ghanaians will surely entrust their destinies into our hands because they trust us to deliver.”

Delivering the sermon, Apostle F.E Antwi, a minister of the Church of Pentecost, called upon Ghanaians to seek the face of God and work to promote peace in all their endeavours at all time, as the surest way to ensuring progress and prosperity in the country.

According to Apostle Dr Antwi, peace remains “one of the most essential pre-requisites for progress and prosperity” in any aspect of human life.

He urged Ghanaians not to feel disheartened as a result of the challenging times they are going through, assuring: “There is hope for the future. 2012 is a year of divine restoration, a year of divine favour, a year of success and God will give Ghana the right leader.”

He challenged the nation to pray against any individual or group who will want to do anything to sabotage the nation’s quest for continued peace.
