Rev. Christian Andrews Congratulates President Akufo-Addo

The presidential candidate of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), Rev. Christian Kwabena Andrews, has congratulated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his victory in last Monday’s presidential election.

He prayed for the President and the government and asked that God guide him to continue to implement policies and programmes for the betterment of the people in his second tenure.

Rev. Andrews gave the congratulatory message when he visited President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House in Accra yesterday. He was accompanied by some of his party executive.

Rev. Andrews, also known as ‘Osofo Kyere Abosom’ is the Founder and Leader of Life Assembly Worship Centre, a Church organisation. He came third in the Presidential election.

Rev. Andrews, however, appealed to President Akufo-Addo to create an avenue for amicable settlement of issues that had cropped up after last Monday’s general election.

Rev. Andrew appealed to the government to consider sponsoring political parties, particularly the smaller parties, to finance their activities.

President Akufo-Addo said it was incumbent on political party leaders to ensure the prevailing peace and stability in the country was sustained.

“I will do whatever I can to ensure peace, security and unity in the country, you can count on me. I will do it. The country needs it and I also need that. I am the leader of this country and if anything happens it is my name that will be mentioned,” he said.

According to President Akufo-Addo, “nothing bad should happen during our time as political leaders” adding that “all I need is for people like you to also support me through advice, encouragement and anything that will help me achieve that”.

Regarding the request for state sponsorship of political parties and the media, the President said because the resources to be expensed for such ventures belonged to the nation, the country needed to arrive at a consensus on such a proposal.
