Founder and overseer of the Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has urged Ghanaians to exercise patience with President Nana Akufo-Addo as he bids to get the economy back on its feet.
The Akufo-Addo-led administration has been in government for just eight months, however, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been on their necks to immediately deliver on their promises.
The Archbishop believes such pressure is premature, urging patience with the Ghanaian people.
According to him, Ghanaians must “pray” for the president and his appointees to be able to govern the country properly.
“We need to pray for him to succeed. It is a capacity issue. We need to pray and believe that God will surround him with men and women who are selfless people and don’t have an agenda of their own, but they carry the agenda of the country,” Archbishop Duncan-Williams said Wednesday in an interview with Bola Ray on the Starr Chat show.
He added that eight months is too short a time to judge the success or failure of the Akufo-Addo government.
The clergyman called on the public to “give him time and things will be clear, whether the men he has have the capacity or they don’t or whether selfless or they are looking for their own interest or whether they are in for the president's agenda or they are in for the love of country.”
He went on to state that he is not bothered by those to link his utterances to one political party or the other.
According to him, people can believe what they want, but as far as he knows he is not affiliated to any political party he is okay.
