Man of God Blesses Nana
A RENOWNED international evangelist from Zambian, Dr. Nevers Mumba, has joined the tall list of men of God seeking God's blessings for Nana Akufo-Addo, the main opposition, New Patriotic Party (NPP's) presidential candidate for the 2012 elections.
Dr. Mumba, who is also a former Zambian Vice-President, yesterday prayed for God's guidance and protection for Nana Akufo-Addo, believing the NPP flagbearer would continue to lead the main opposition party and Ghana after the December 7 polls.
'Hopefully, I hope to come back to Ghana to meet you as the president of this country,' Dr. Mumba prayed.
The man of God was in Ghana as the special guest of honour at the first National Prayer Breakfast organized by the Action Chapel International at the Movenpick Hotel in Accra.
The prayer session, which is a subsidiary of Prayer Summit International, was organized on the theme: 'Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges' for religious leaders to pray for Ghana as it braces up to hold crucial presidential and parliamentary elections this year.
Dr. Mumba prayed to the Almighty to give Ghanaians and other countries leaders that would save the people from hardships and corruption.
He and Nana Akufo-Addo had a joint media briefing immediately after the prayer breakfast, during which he prayed for the NPP presidential candidate.
Welcoming the international evangelist, Nana Akufo-Addo told him that the NPP had been at the forefront of the struggle for democracy in Ghana, giving the assurance that the party would do everything possible to ensure peace in the country before, during and after the elections.
Ghana, he pointed, was noted for changing governments through the ballot box for sometime time now and that nothing should be done to truncate this enviable record.
Ghanaians, Nana Akufo-Addo requested, should be allowed to freely choose their leader in the upcoming elections without intimidation and vote rigging.
