Finance Minister-designate Ken Ofori Atta says his recovery from COVID-19 complications has been miraculous.
According to him, doctors taking care of him in the United States acknowledge the involvement of a divine being in his recovery.
Contributing to a virtual post-budget forum held by PricewaterhouseCoopers Tuesday, the former Finance Minister said “For me personally, I guess I would want to reiterate how merciful the Lord has been to me and also grateful for the prayer support from my family. The challenge is my post-COVID-19 symptoms.
“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.”
