Former NPP sympathiser Kwame A Plus has taken a swipe on the president after inviting the clergy to the jubilee house for a breakfast prayer amidst COVID-19 breakout in Ghana.
A-Plus had questioned the intelligence of the president, calling his attention to how he had asked Ghanaians to donate money to import stone from Israel to build a cathedral but cannot use the same medium to raise a $100M to fight coronavirus but to wait for the IMF and the World Bank to borrow”
“The president can ask Ghanaians to donate money to import stone from Israel to build a cathedral but cannot ask the same people to donate money to fight coronavirus. He is, therefore, waiting for IMF and the World Bank to give us the 100 million HE instructed the finance ministry to release. “ he had said.
The president had invited the clergy for a breakfast prayer at the jubilee house to seek the face of God and his intervention as the country doubles up it’s confirmed cases on the novel pandemic coronavirus disease.
A Plus in his view thinks the president could have done better if he could have asked the clergy to help him raise the promised $100M than inviting them for prayers only. HE quizzed, “Prayer works but why don’t you ask the clergy to join you raise money instead of just praying and waiting for IMF and World Bank?”
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has on Thursday, March 19, 2020, organised a Breakfast Prayer meeting to pray against the spread of COVID-19 in Ghana.
Organised at the Jubilee House in Accra, it was attended by members of the clergy.
The President expressed hope that the country will heal from the deadly disease through prayer.
Addressing the clergy before the start of the prayers, Mr Akufo-Addo said: “These are not ordinary times and at such times in a country whose population is predominantly Christian, we must seek the face of the one true God for healing and restoration”.
“So, I’ve called you to this prayer meeting for us to join together and pray to the Almighty God to protect our nation, heal this land and save us from this pandemic. In doing so, we are also putting into practice the hope of the words in the holy scriptures in James 5:14 and 15 and I quote ‘Is anyone among you sing let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil and a prayer offered in faith will raise him up.”
He added that: “I am confident that this morning’s prayer which will be offered in faith will help heal our nation and will help raise Ghana up and I believe profoundly that we the Ghanaian people, with our faith in the Almighty, will overcome this challenge. This too will pass.”
