A New Patriotic Party (NPP) activist in Sunyani, Mr Frank Opoku Adjapong, has appealed to Ghanaians to exercise caution and give President John Evans Atta Mills the benefit of the doubt to prove himself as the leader ordained to lead the country after the keenly contested 2008 Election.
He also urged bigwigs of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and those who matter in the party when it came to decision making to give President Mills a free hand to operate.
Mr Adjapong, who is a Sunyani-based businessman, called at the Graphic Office in Sunyani and explained that before the election, majority of Ghanaians, including Christians, Muslims and traditionalists prayed to God to give the nation peace and a good leader. By this, Prof. Mills eventually became the winner and was subsequently sworn in as President.
“With this explanation, I expect every Ghanaian to be patient with him (President Mills) and see him as someone ordained and chosen by God to lead the nation at this point in time of the nation’s history. Let’s, therefore, rally behind him and criticise constructively to enable him bring about the good he has for this country,” he suggested.
He urged those who doubted President Mills’s capabilities to do away with that, since his presidency was a divine calling from God.
Mr Adjapong, therefore, dispelled the rumours making rounds that Mills had consulted occultists and fetish priests in the neighbouring Nigeria in order to emerge as the winner in the December election.
“I monitored Prof. Mills closely when he was elected by his party as its candidate through to the electioneering till now, and he has exhibited that he is really a “born-again Christian”, as he had been a regular worshipper at the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Nigeria, headed by Prophet T.B. Joshua”, he added.
“What even made me to believe the more that Prof. Mills was a leader chosen by God to lead this nation was last Sunday where he attended a thanksgiving church service at the Synagogue Church after the ECOWAS Heads of State summit in Nigeria on Saturday to give thanks to God, which I watched live on the satellite disc (Dstv),” he observed.
Mr Adjapong noted that he had no doubt whatsoever in his mind that President Mills had something good to deliver to the country, and it was incumbent on every Ghanaian, no matter their political, social and ethnic background to support him to accomplish his vision for the country.
