President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has called on churches to work together with government in the moral, political, spiritual and economic life of Ghanaians.
This according to the president will fast-track the pace of development in the country.
“We want a partnership that is founded on common values of service to mankind, of love and solidarity with our fellow human beings, based on truth, honesty and integrity,” he said.
Speaking at the opening of the 29th Biennial General Meeting of the Assemblies of God, Ghana, at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi on Tuesday, the president reiterated his resolve to get every Ghanaian child educated.
“Education is a tool for development, and not for self-serving partisan political debates. This tool is what all of us should commit ourselves to, that every young person in this country, no matter where they are in Ghana, no matter the circumstances of their parents, have access to education,” he said.
Mr. president urged all churches in Ghana to emulate the Assemblies of God Church for their support on some Government initiatives, such as in sanitation, education and the building of the National Cathedral.
