The outgoing Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Prof. Emmanuel Martey, has said the church will partner the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo, to develop the country.
“We are taking these seriously. For us, as a church, the Presbyterian Church is the oldest, existing church in this country. We will not sit down for newer churches and political parties to come and mess up our country,” Professor Martey told the former Attorney General at the church’s 16th General Assembly Tuesday.
Prof Martey added that: “We will keep on praying for you, and for calling the Presbyterian Church into partnership, we will partner you to build Ghana… Nana, I wish you well. Your seriousness and experience. You have said you’re a Christian, so stay in your faith and you will be an overcomer.”
The moderator went ahead to commend Nana for his clean campaign and his maturity in politics. He finally assured Nana Addo that the whole Presbyterian Church will be behind him with prayers.
