The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has declared three days of fasting and prayers ahead of next week’s polls.
The fast begins on Thursday, 2 December 2020 and ends on Saturday, 5 December.
It will be climaxed with a special Muslim service on Friday, 4 December 2020 and a Christian service on Saturday.
The NDC National Chairman, Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, in a statement, said there was the need for the party to seek the face of God for the 7 December polls.
“It is imperative that, as a party, we call, once again, for God’s intervention to buttress our hard work and determination to secure a resounding victory in the December 7 general elections to the Glory of God Almighty,” the statement noted.
The NDC, in November, declared a similar fast under the theme: ‘The horse is prepared for the day of battle but victory is in the hands of the Lord’ – Proverbs 21:31.
The party, in a statement, said it “deems it necessary to invite Ghanaians to join us in praying and interceding for the peace and stability of Ghana, as our dear nation gears up for a crucial election”.
“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 statement said.
It added: “Above all, the NDC recognises that it is God Almighty who chooses good leaders for nations; hence, the party shall be fasting and praying for a resounding victory for our flagbearer and parliamentary candidates in the upcoming elections”.
