Duncan-Williams prays for ‘wide’ victory margin in November elections

The founder of Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has called for prayers to ensure that whoever wins the November elections does so by a large margin that will make it impossible for other parties in the election to dispute the result.

Archbishop Duncan-Williams is, therefore, organising a special prayer sessions with other men of God from May 2 to call on God for peaceful elections, according to a report by classfmonline.com.

“We need to pray for the Electoral Commissioner and the Commission. Then we need to secure the borders of Ghana, we need to secure our gates, we need to secure the airport, we need to pray and secure our national assets, installations like Akosombo dam, we need to secure certain national assets that when they are hijacked, they can bring the whole nation to a standstill.

“We need to pray for the Supreme Court that they will not be dragged into the battle of the election this year,” adding: “This year is a very dicey election,” he said.

Nana Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of Ghana’s biggest opposition party, NPP, together with his running mate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and late chairman, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, challenged the results of the 2012 presidential poll in the Supreme Court.

President John Mahama’s victory was, however, upheld by the court after eight months of litigation.
