According to him, just as God used kings of old to bring development to His people in the Bible, God can also use him to bring development to Ghana.

He urged the clergy to continue to pray for Ghana as the country nears the December 7 polls. Dr Bawumia said peace was essential in ensuring that Ghana develops rapidly.

He urged the clergy to use their pulpits to preach about peace and advise the youth against being exploited by power-hungry politicians to foment disaster in the upcoming polls.

The Vice President also advocated for religious tolerance. He said it was important for the clergy to collaborate with other faith leaders to build stronger national cohesion.

Mahama says God will choose the next president

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, says Akufo-Addo has no authority to determine who succeeds him after the 2024 presidential election.

This comes after President Akufo-Addo, on a visit to Wa with his Vice President and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, told Ghanaians that he hopes to pass the mantle on to Dr Bawumia and not John Mahama.

He urged Akufo-Addo to prioritise a peaceful, transparent and credible election. He said Ghana's track record for conducting relatively peaceful and credible elections should not be tainted by the president's desires but should serve the common good.

He said Akufo-Addo should uphold the country's image as a beacon of democracy on the African continent.
