The former president and 2020 presidential candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has noted that the greatest difficulty that face many institutions is the lack of succession planning.
He said institutions like churches, that want to survive beyond the first generation, must develop a good succession plan to ensure that the work of God is placed in capable hands when the old guards phase out.
Former president Mahama made this known last Sunday, March 15, 2019, when he joined the congregation of the Central Assemblies of God Church, Tema Community 4 for the induction of Rev. Samuel Cofie as the District Pastor of the church.

The former president, said succession planning was a vital process in every institution and that the church could not afford to ignore this important principle.
"I am confident the Assemblies of God Church, Ghana, is in a good place and will continue to develop new generation of leaders at every given time,” he said.
He commended the newly-elected officers and urged them to focus on building a church based on God’s word and reminded the new leaders of the onerous responsibilities that had been placed on them and encouraged them to focus on the teaching of the word of God.
