The outgoing Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Prof. Emmanuel Martey, has said the church will partner the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo, to develop the country.

“We will keep on praying for you, and for calling the Presbyterian Church into partnership, we will partner you to build Ghana… Nana, I wish you well. Your seriousness and experience. You have said you’re a Christian, so stay in your faith and you will be an overcomer,” Professor Martey told the former Attorney General at the church’s 16th General Assembly Tuesday.

According to Prof. Martey, the Presbyterian Church is taking the appeals made by the NPP flagbearer seriously, especially the five policy measures raised by Nana Akufo-Addo in eliminating the canker of corruption, which has plagued the country in recent years.

“We are taking these seriously. For us, as a church, the Presbyterian Church is the oldest, existing church in this country. We will not sit down for newer churches and political parties to come and mess up our country,” he indicated.

He added: “We will keep on praying for you, and for calling the Presbyterian Church into partnership, we will partner you to build Ghana… Nana, I wish you well. Your seriousness and experience. You have said you’re a Christian, so stay in your faith and you will be an overcomer.”

The Presby Moderator further commended Nana Akufo-Addo “for your clean campaign, and your sense of political maturity and decency.” He indicated that as compared to other political parties, in the use of indecent language on the media landscape, “ You (in the NPP) are doing better”.

He stressed: “It is only in a corrupt society that the truth becomes controversial. But we are not perturbed if we are described as controversial because we speak the truth. We will continue to speak the truth, and the truth is Jesus Himself.

“Nana we know the work that the NPP has done. The evidence is clear. From 2001 to 2009, we know what you did. From 2009 up till now, we also know what is happening. You have asked for our prayers. Your request is very selfless. You first said we should pray for peace and unity for Ghana, and then NPP before you asked for prayers for yourself. We will be with you in prayers.”
