POLITICS: NDC Declares 3-Day Of Fasting And Prayers Ahead Of Elections
The main opposition, National Democratic Congress, (NDC) has declared a 3-day fasting and prayer session ahead of the December elections.
In a statement, the party stated that the period of fasting commences on November 5, under the theme "The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory is in the hands of the Lord"
According to the party, the purpose of the fasting and prayer period is to intercede for peace and stability in Ghana as the country prepares to go into the December elections.
"It is equally our belief that our nation requires God's divine intervention to halt the recent spate of armed robbery, killings and other violent crimes that we are witnessing across the length and breadth of the country in the run-up to this year's elections". the party added.
It further indicated that another reason for the exercise is to pray for a "resounding victory " for the party's flagbearer, John Mahama as well as its parliamentary candidates across the country.
The NDC will climax its fasting and prayers with a church service on Sunday,8 November 2020 at the Royal House Chapel International in Accra.
