He cited several examples of Countries that peace has eluded them in our continent bringing about chaos and sufferings and urged every citizen of our dear nation to embrace and pray for the peace of the Country.

The auditorium was charged with song ministrations by Uncle Ato, No Tribe, Daughters of Glorious Jesus and Pastor Joe Beecham.

Prayers were said for Ghana, the United States, the nations of the world for peace to prevail and for all political leaders in Ghana as well as party representatives who attended the programme.
