Vice President-Elect, His Excellency Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and his wife, Samira on Christmas Day (December 25, 2016) joined members of The Church of Pentecost at Nungua-Nshorna District to fellowship with them.
The historic service which was chaired by the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost who doubles as the President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah, also coincided with the dedication of the ultra-modern 2500-seater Fred Stephen Safo Memorial Temple, where the service took place.
Dr Bawumia’s entourage included the Members of Parliament-elect for Krowor and Okaikwei Central, Hon. Elizabeth Afoley Quaye and Hon. Patrick Yaw Boamah respectively, among others.
Also gracing the service was the Chief of Nungua, Nii Odaifio Welentsi III, and his retinue of chiefs from the traditional area.
The Vice President-Elect was in church to thank God for seeing the nation through successful elections.
He also thanked the members and leadership of The Church of Pentecost for their prayer support which ensured peaceful elections.
He believed and also voiced out that the prayers offered for him and Nana Akuffo Addo by many people led to their historic electoral victory.
According to him, they put God at the centre of their campaign with the slogan, “The Battle is the Lord’s,” since they believed that unless the Lord builds the house, the builder builds in vain.
Dr Bawumia indicated that the election results actually showed that there was a miracle, and that was the doing of the Lord.
He urged the Church to continue to support the Akufo-Addo-led administration which will assume office come January 7, 2017 in prayer since the task ahead is enormous, stressing that “the Battle is still the Lord’s.”
Dr. Bawumia paid special tribute to the Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Company, Elder Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, and his wife, Cynthia for their massive financial support for the completion of the magnificent church building which cost over GH¢5 million.
The wife of the Vice-President in-waiting, Samira Bawumia, on behalf of the First-Lady in-waiting, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, thanked the leadership and members of the Church and the Christian community for supporting her husband and Nana Akufo-Addo with prayers leading to their landslide victory.
