He said ‘’Christians should pray and rally behind the Akufo Addo’s government to succeed, because if the government succeeds in its policies and programmes, the nation benefits’’. He also called on Christian leaders to emulate the leadership style of Jesus Christ; the head of the church since they have been chosen by God to lead His flock, any decision taken which is in contrary to God’s laid down principles will lead the flock to destructions.
