  • Description

    GHANA'S NEWLY-ELECTED PRIME MINISTER, DR. KOFIA BUSIA, ATTENDED A SPECIAL THANKSGIVING SERVICE AT AKROPONG ON SUNDAY (SEPTEMBER 28). HE SPOKE OF THE PROGRESS PARTY'S VICTORY AT THE RECENT ELECTIONS AS "A MIRACLE WROUGHT BY GOD" AND HE RECALLED THE TRIALS WHICH THE PARTY AND THE COUNTRY HAD EXPERIENCED DURING THE NOT-TOO-DISTANT PAST.

    A LARGE CONGREGATION - WHICH INCLUDED TRIBAL CHIEFS, PARLIAMENTARIANS AND CABINET MINISTERS - HEARD THE PRIME MINISTER SPEAK. PROMINENT AMONG THEM WAS FOREIGN MINISTER VICTOR OWUSU.

    DR. BUSIA, RECALLING THE SUFFERING OF THOSE WHO HAD LIVED IN EXILE FOR MANY YEARS AND THE MANY WHO HAD BEEN IMPRISONED IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY UNDER THE REGIME OF DR. KWAME NKRUMAH, URGED THE GATHERING AND ALL PEOPLE OF GHANA TO PRAY EVERY DAY JUST AS THEY EAT EVERY DAY. HE SAID THAT THE PROGRESS PARTY HAD WON THE ELECTIONS BECAUSE THEIR MEMBERS HAD KNOWN HOW TO PRAY EFFECTIVELY. BUT, HE REMINDED THEM, PRAYERS WERE NOT MEANT TO BE SAID ONLY IN TIMES OF DIFFICULTY. HE ALSO APPEALED FOR HUMILITY, DEPLORING THE FACT THAT MANY PEOPLE ACHIEVED HIGH STATUS IN LIFE BEGAN TO THINK THEY HAD CREATED THEMSELVES.

    LATER, ON BEHALF OF THE CHURCH, THE REVEREND T.A. OSEI PRESENTED BIBLES TO DR. BUSIA AND TO MR. A.A. ABEDI - THE VICTORIOUS LOCAL PROGRESS PARTY CANDIDATE OF THE AKWAPIM-NORTH CONSTITUENCY.
