Former President John Dramani Mahama has congratulated Apostle Eric Kwabena Nyamekye on his election as the new Chairman of the Church of Pentecost.
Mr. Mahama also congratulated the Church of Pentecost on Apostle Nyamekye’s election and that of its Executive Council at the 43rd General Council Meeting of the Church.
He said the overwhelming approval of the new Chairman who succeeds Apostle Opoku Nyinah is heartwarming and heralds God’s love and imminent blessings for Christians and all Ghanaians.
He also extended congratulations to Apostle Nyinah for completing his tenure with grace.
Mr Mahama noted that with over three million members in 99 countries worldwide, the Church of Pentecost over the course of more than half a century, has not only significantly promoted the social, cultural and economic transformation of Ghana, but also has played and continues to play a leading role in Ghana’s enviable global recognition as a godly nation.
He observes that, “as we move into the uncertain future, the Church’s time-tested precepts based on moral guidance, sound teachings and intercessory prayers would be critical in guiding our dear nation.”
Mr. Mahama wished the new Chairman and the newly elected Executive Council members well in their endeavours.
