The Chief of Staff Julius Debrah has stated the National Democratic Congress (NDC) under President John Mahama is committed to maintaining the peace and cohesion of the country before, during and after the December 7 general elections.
He said: “My boss the President has thought me to always start the day by saying father let thy will be done. When you are a child of God and you believe in Him, you don’t fear of who wins or loses an election because God’s own will shall prevail.”
Mr. Debrah made this known when he interacted and interceded by prayer and supplication for a peaceful elections with the members of the clergy in the Volta region as part of his campaign tour of the region.
He indicated God knows who the next President of Ghana would be and on 7th December His will shall prevail.
The Chief of Staff urged the youth to hasten slowly, be patient and allow the almighty God to rule in their affairs. He added being successful is not via violence but by believing and availing yourself to God.
“The President and his government’s main concern is to ensure the country progresses, doing what is right before the Lord and to avoid his wrath,” he said.
He noted that government and the church are partners in development hence the need for the clergy to continue praying for God’s “mercy, peace and progress”.
He advised the youth to avoid acts of violence as Ghana inches towards election 2016.
“No matter what anybody will do or not do, we in the NDC believes that the will of God would be done, and when that is done, nobody will have any course to complain,” Mr. Debrah noted.
The moderator of the General Assembly of the EP church Rev. Dr Seth Senyo Agidi led the congregation to pray for peace and unity ahead of the elections.
He said there is no substitute for peace, therefore, the church would continue to pray for the “good Lord to see the country through the elections successfully without any hitches”.
Some of the members of the entourage are a member of President Mahama’s campaign team madam Faustina Nelson, a vice chairperson of the NDC Anita Desoso, a Presidential Staffer Emelia Arthur, a deputy general secretary of the NDC Koku Anyidoho among others.
