John Dramani Mahama has pleaded with Christians to live up to their beliefs by showing neighborly love and sharing what they have.
That, he claimed, would contribute in relieving the populace of some of the current hardships facing Ghanaian society today.
Mr. Mahama was addressing during a thanksgiving ceremony held by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana (EPCG) to conclude its 175th anniversary celebration on Sunday at Ho Jubilee Park.
The honoree, a former president, stated that it takes virtue on the part of leaders to provide help to the people.
In light of the current economic difficulties, he asked the EPCG to continue spreading the message of love, perseverance, and integrity. He asserted that the state must always acknowledge the role of the church as a critical partner in nation building.
Representatives from the E.P. Church in Pakistan, the Eglise Evangelical Presbyterienne du Togo, and Bremen Mission in Germany attended the service.
