Vice president Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has called on Ghanaians to seek the face of God for peace, unity and development as the country celebrates a New Year.
According to him, God is the central point of every agenda and therefore urged all Ghanaians to continue to pray considering the challenges including the coronavirus that characterized happenings in the previous year.
Vice President said Ghana will become a reference point in economic development in Africa and the sub-region in the next four-year term of the Akufo-Addo administration.
He believes the country will experience a major transformation throughout the second of President Akufo-Addo.
At the Bantama Assemblies of God Church in Kumasi“ Vice President, Dr. Alhaji Mahammudu Bawumia said ”We all know the difficulty encountered in 2020 with the coronavirus pandemic that led to the death of persons across the world and we are still here. There is the need for us to be grateful to God. We conducted an election which also ended in peace. We want peace in Ghana and whatever you do if the hand of God is not involved it would not be successful. As we go into 2021 let us pray to God to give us peace, unity and development for 2021” .
Dr. Bawumia has thus urged all Ghanaians to play contributory roles to make Ghana a haven for the general population.
“We all have a responsibility to ensure that the country Ghana is made a haven for the collective settlement and not just for a selected few. There is no doubt in my mind that some significant foundation has already been laid for accelerated development, and we are confident that he who has begun the good work will help us to bring it to perfect completion. I am excited about the future of Ghana. We are going to be one of the powerhouses in Africa by the grace of God. We are only just beginning and so the next four years, we will see a major transformation in Ghana”, Dr. Bawumia assured.
The Vice President also joined congregants at the St. Cyprians Anglican Cathedral where he reiterated the need for all Ghanaians to maintain the peace in the country.
Other churches in the Kumasi metropolis were full as congregants attend the watch night events.
A Resident Pastor at the Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC), Reverend Josh Obeng wants believers to enter the new year with a renewed hope.
“2020 was a very difficult year and this whole Coronavirus hit us. But by the grace of God, every Ghanaian that is alive today has a cause and a reason to thank God. Our message for next year is that there is hope for 2021 because we are alive. There is still hope for the many things we want to do or see as a country. So we need to rejoice and praise God for the possibility in 2021,” he said.
