We shall keep moving forward on the path of economic liberation and rapid development. – Bawumia


Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, expressed optimism that Ghana will continue on the path of economic liberation and fast development in 2019.

As a result, he has emphasized that Ghanaians must shift their hands, minds, and hearts as the government makes all effort humanly feasible to usher in a joyous new year.

Dr. Bawumia declared, “I am very optimistic about Ghana’s future, and my prayer is that 2023 should see us continue on the path of economic emancipation and accelerated development,” as he ushered in the new year with Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, and the Dr. Wayat Assembly of the Church of Pentecost in Accra New Town (2023).

The Vice-President was accompanied at the service by his wife, Mrs. Samira Bawumia, a number of past and present Members of Parliament (MPs), ministers of state, and top government officials.

Economic difficulties

Vice-President Bawumia, who was dressed entirely in white, acknowledged the challenges facing the nation but expressed optimism that it would weather the storm and turn things around.

We have been working and trusting in God for his unfailing love, and thankfully we are starting to see the power of our lord manifest in the improvements in our economic outlook. “You do not just trust in God and sit and fold your arms and go to sleep, you have to work,” the Vice-President said.

He continued by elaborating on the economic crisis, stating that it had been marked by economic uncertainty and difficulties that had made even stronger countries stutter.

He stated that during these trying times, “we deploy all humanly feasible efforts to help us stay afloat on the surface of the obstacles but those who ignore God and tackle the war on their own cannot succeed.”

Therefore, he urged the populace to have faith in the Lord and have hope in the face of such uncertainties.

Vice-President Bawumia emphasized the necessity to use spiritual authority and a relationship with God to bring progress and pleasure to countries while quoting from the Bible to buttress his argument.

He declared that the church must be viewed as a tool not just for spiritual and moral purity but also for social and economic development, both individually and in collaboration with the government.

Dr. Bawumia stated in this regard that the government was dedicated to working with the church and all faith-based organizations to achieve those aims.


In regards to peace and togetherness, he prayed that Ghana would maintain its current level of peace despite its ethnic and religious diversity.

“Even though we come from various racial and religious backgrounds, we are all children of the same parent, God. Our oneness in diversity is what makes us special, and we should jealously maintain it.

We may have slight disparities due to background differences, which are normal, but despite these distinctions, he said, “we must be indivisible.”

Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the leader of the Church of Pentecost, stated in a sermon that better days and years are coming, and that in order for people to be well-positioned in preparedness for God’s blessings and excellent results.

In his speech on “repositioning yourself for maximum influence in your world,” Apostle Nyamekye stressed that in order to receive God’s blessings on their lives, the citizens must reposition themselves to be on His side.

He said, “God will always be with us” if we rearrange ourselves, mature as children of God free from superstition and other vices, alter our mindset, rearrange our hearts and hands, and work really hard.

Also describing 2023 as a good year, the Church of Pentecost chairman asked the congregation to take God’s side in this brand-new year.
