President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has called for the Church and Government to collaborate in the collective agenda of uplifting the moral, political, spiritual and economic life of the Ghanaian people, and, thereby, help accelerate the pace of development in the country.
According to President Akufo-Addo, “We want a partnership which is founded on common values of service to mankind, of love and solidarity with our fellow human beings, and of truth, honesty and integrity. If we focus on these values, it will enable us to lift up our country and fulfil the word of God, and realise the promise of immortality that Christ offers to all true believers.”
President Akufo-Addo made this known on Tuesday, 14th August 2018, at the end of his 5-day tour of the Ashanti Region, when he addressed the 29th Biennial General Council Meeting of the Assemblies of God Church, held at the Great Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi.
Welcoming the support of the Assemblies of God Church on some Government initiatives, such as in sanitation, education and the building of the National Cathedral, the President noted that these are positive examples which must be emulated by all churches in the country.
Whilst reiterating his determination to ensuring that every Ghanaian child gets a minimum of secondary school education, President Akufo-Addo explained that education is the most important contribution he can make to the welfare and progress of Ghana, and he is determined to do so.
