The popular preacher said the change could be attributed to President Akufo-Addo’s transformational leadership.

The American preacher said through Akufo-Addo's "great leadership”, Ghana had now become one of Africa’s “wealthiest” countries.

“And, in case you are not up to speed on how things are going in Africa; Ghana is one of Africa’s wealthiest countries; he [President Akufo-Addo] has completely turned it around.”

“It is the largest producer of gold on the continent and the world’s second-largest producer of cocoa”, Jakes explained, adding: “Under President Akufo-Addo’s leadership, Ghana has emerged as a booming tech centre – even welcoming Twitter”.

“[Twitter] is moving to Ghana. Africa’s corporate headquarters of Twitter is going to be there”, the preacher noted.

T.D. Jakes said Akufo-Addo was also working to transform Ghana into a travel destination for Americans, especially African-Americans and the African diaspora and was promoting investment in Ghana.

Over the last couple of years, he told the audience, “Ghana’s government has set aside 500 acres of land for foreigners looking to resettle there”.

The preacher added that Ghana’s move to embrace African-Americans has had a huge significance for the country.

“The man is brilliant; he’s just smart,” the American pastor praised President Akufo-Addo.

President Akufo-Addo would be one of the speakers for T.D Jakes' upcoming summit on leadership.
