Ghana is rising again - Mahama

The President made these remarks when he worshiped at the Grace Pentecostal Branch of the Assemblies of God Church at Effiakuma, a suburb of Takoradi in the Western Region.


President John Mahama has stated that Ghana is rising again despite all the challenges it has been grappling with in the past few years.

He was convinced that God’s favour was upon Ghana because “today we have the fastest growing middle class in Africa. Nobody goes to the next door to beg for iced water. In every house, everyone has a TV in his room”.

In his address to the congregation, President Mahama stressed that “God’s favour is on the country and we were able to overcome all that…Ghana is the only country that has not suffered civil war…Our nation is favoured, and our nation is great.”

“Ghana was recognised in the whole community and celebrated as the first sub Saharan African country to have independence but by the  1970s and 1980s; the country fell to the bottom of the pit…Our economy was struggling, there was no light, …to make matters worse there was no food…”

The President appealed to the general public to constantly support him in prayers.

“….Even if men of God need prayers then those of us in authority in the secular world even need more prayers because the Bible even says we should pray for those in authority so that he will give them divine guidance to be able to do what is right in the sight of God.”
