The 2016 Presidential Candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said the Ghanaian electorate have the power to effect the changes they desire in their livelihoods, and can do so in the November elections.
According to him, as is stipulated by law, “the time has come, this year, for us to vote and decide who leads us. Let us use the power of our thumbs to change Ghana, and bring in a government that can change our circumstances, and bring relief, progress and prosperity to all.”
The NPP flagbearer made this known when he visited a total of five churches within the Cape Coast Municipality on Sunday, June 19, at the commencement of day 4 of his tour of the Central Region. Nana Akufo-Addo worshipped with congregants at St. John the Baptist Parish, Pedu; Mosama Disco Cristo Church, Effutu; Christ Church Anglican Cathedral, Cape Coast; the Lamb of God Ministry, Jejeano; and the Methodist Church – Calvary Society, Abura.

“I have come to ask for prayers for Ghana. Pray that in this election year, there will be peace, before, during and after the elections. Let us cast our ballots peacefully, mindful of the fact that we need unity and oneness to prevail amongst us,” he said.
He also requested for prayers for the Electoral Commission, so the body creates a level playing field for all political parties, and conduct this year’s elections in a free, fair, credible and transparent manner, so that the results of the elections will be readily accepted by all, without any dispute.
“Finally, in this critical year of decision, please pray for the NPP. Pray to God for victory for the NPP. Pray for your servant, Nana Akufo-Addo, so that God grants me wisdom, strength, courage and a good heart to be a good leader for the NPP, and, if He wills, a good leader for Ghana,” he further added.
Nana Akufo-Addo introduced Barbara Ayisi and Michael Arthur-Dadzie, the NPP parliamentary candidates for Cape Coast North and Cape Coast South constituencies respectively, to the various congregations describing them as persons “with clean hearts who have the welfare and concerns of the people of Cape Coast at heart.”
