As the first Sunday after the death of the late President, church leaders are paying glowing tribute to the late President who was also openly known as an astute Christian.
The General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev Fred Degbe, called on all to be prayerful.
He said the Christian Council will do all it can to give the late President a befitting burial.
“In spite of all the divisions we have he is our elected President and therefore the one who is the symbol of the unity and the stance of the nation and to loose a person like that in office, it’s quite tragic and sad,” Rev Fred Degbe told Joy News.
The General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana added that “we share in prayer with the NDC leadership and then, we will certainly reconvene and work with the authorities and all those who are working on the next steps to see how we can also contribute our quota to give our President a befitting burial.”
Joy News’ Nana Agyei Essuman who visited a number of churches in Accra Sunday reported that the mood in the churches was mixed.
At the Nima Assembly of the Christ Apostolic Church, the Senior Pastor, Rev Osei Yaw Dankwah told Joy News his sermon was based on the passing of the President.
Rev Mrs Jane Ackon of the Victory Bible Church, Kokomlemle, speaking to Joy News encouraged Ghanaians “to take example from this great man of God; the way he lived [and] the way he was able to live at peace with every one.”
