He said , leadership was spiritual and that it was important not to ignore the God factor in the selection of a leader for the country.
Rev. Dr. Tetteh said “it will be said for us to ignore the God factor in searching for leaders, and that it is necessary to get everybody together to pray for a leader after God’s heart”.
The renowned evangelist and economist said these in an interview with the Ghanaian Times yesterday, in Accra.
Rev. Dr Tetteh said he would organise a one day prayer intercession dubbed ‘Ghana Must Win’ on December 3, at the International Trade Fair Centre from 10 am to 6pm, towards the upcoming elections.
He said his friends from Israel and the United States of America, who were also ministers of the gospel, would support the event.
Rev. Dr. Tetteh said there had been great rallies, manifestoes, conferences and political activities “but what is God saying about the leadership of the country”?
He also appealed to all intercessors, church leaders, pastors, workers, political leaders and all stakeholders to throng to the venue and pray.
Rev. Dr. Tetteh urged political parties and their leadership to think of the welfare of the citizenry and how the people could have their social needs met.
He also advised politicians to walk the talk of peace, and to deliver on their promises to ensure that their followers promote peace.
Rev. Dr. Tetteh said the nation should bear in mind that it has a history of how some persons were released from prison to become presidents with others not having the idea of becoming presidents.
He mentioned Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, and Flt.Lt J.J Rawlings who were released from prison to become presidents and also Dr Abrefa Busia who was brought from exile, to lead the country.
Dr. Tetteh said God could choose anyone to be president and that “whoever God decides is what He would give to us as president”.
He asked the two leading political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as well as other political parties seeking to be elected to be “mindful of the fact that you are seeking to be leaders of a nation that is united”.
