The founder and Apostle General of Royalhouse Chapel International, Most Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, has called for peace in the aftermath of the December 7 elections.
According to him, whatever the outcome of the general election, peace must prevail especially between the two major political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He said the leaders of the major parties must find a common ground and settle their misunderstanding regarding the declaration of results.
“I know that usually the one who is in opposition calls the winner to congratulate him, but I am praying for the Lord to touch the heart of President Nana Akufo-Addo to call former president Mahama and say come and let us talk. I pray that this will happen this week,” he said.
Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah also called for a unity government where members of the opposition would have a place in government.
“I want to encourage the President to consider giving some executive positions in his government to qualified officers of the NDC. We want to break the winner takes all spirit,” he said.
He said it is the winner takes all spirit that brings about the agitations and contention in the elections.
“We want to see a unity government happen so that we can run this nation as one unit and develop the nation and serve God together,” he added.
He also called for peace to prevail in constituencies where the parliamentary results were in contention.
Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah was speaking to his congregation at the thanksgiving service held on Sunday, December 13, 2020, where two members of his church emerged winners at the parliamentary elections.
Madam Rita Odoley Sowah won the parliamentary seat for the La Dadekopoton Constituency in Greater Accra on the ticket of the NDC and Mr. Teddy Nana Yaw Addi, won for the Ayensuano constituency in the Eastern Region on the ticket of the NDC.
Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah thanked God for their victory and charged them to serve faith.
