President Akufo-Addo has expressed optimism that 2021 will be a good year for the country as government strives to bring the Coronavirus under control.

He said government will rebuild the economy and secure the security and peace of the nation.

President Akufo-Addo was addressing the media after joining the North Ridge Church to usher in the New Year.

It was an all-white event as the watch-night service was marked with joyful songs of praise to God and thanksgiving for seeing the country through the difficultiesCOVID-19 presented in 2020. Intercessory prayers were said for Ghana, the government, the legislature, Judiciary, the security services, and for all health workers and affiliates.

Prayers were also raised for good counsel for President from his appointees, and for God to imbue him with the spirit of discernment, and for divine guidance to steer the affairs of the country successfully.

The congregants also prayed for God’s protection as the coronavirus continues raging around the world.

A Minister of the church, Reverend Andrew Odjawo in an exhortation said God has been good to Ghana and indeed the people of Africa. He noted that projections that huge numbers of Africans would die from the COVID-19 disease did not materialise.

The Rev. Odjawo implored the congregation to shun any philosophy that does not follow Christ’s teaching, and make Him the centre of their lives.

President Akufo-Addo was upbeat that Ghana would surmount the scourge of the COVID-19 pandemic and that the impact of the disease on the economy would be mitigated in the New Year.

The President was accompanied by his wife Rebecca, some senior government officials and family members.
