Ofori Atta speaks
Last week while partaking in a video conference on the 2021 budget, Mr Ofori-Atta expressed gratitude to God for his protection throughout the treatment.
“It is in the Bible that says Peter, therefore, was kept in prison, but prayer was made without ceasing for the church and for him and I have felt how God miraculously delivered Peter from prison because the saints prayed for him”.
“The doctors here have been fantastic and very dedicated, but even they acknowledge that there must be someone upstairs who is watching over me because the numbers were so critical. So thank you indeed for your earnest prayers which have saved me.”
On the 2021 budget, Mr Ofori-Atta said: “Globally, countries are looking at preserving lives and livelihoods and stimulating the economy for growth amidst this pandemic and I think we [Ghana] are not doing any less.
