In a uniform congratulatory statement jointly signed by Communication Directors of the two bodies – Pastor Fred Agyei-Baah and Mrs Solace Asafo-Hlordzi, it said the Adventist church assured the incoming government of its prayer support and best wishes.
“The Adventist Church assures him and his government of her prayers, support and best wishes as he takes up the responsibility of administering the affairs of our dear nation”, the statement read.
The church took turns to also commend Ghanaians for their peaceful conduct before, during, and after the electioneering campaign.
More so, it acknowledged and appreciated the Electoral Commission, the media, the security agencies and all political parties for the level of decorum that characterised activities of the 2016 general elections.

“The Adventist Church takes this opportunity to also thank President John Dramani Mahama for exhibiting good statesmanship by conceding defeat and assuring the nation of a peaceful transition. We wish him, his family, and the National Democratic Congress Party God’s guidance and blessing in all their future endeavours. God bless us all and keep our dear nation united as one people with one destiny”, the statement further read.
In a quick a succession, the two bodies on behalf of the church congratulated all Members of Parliament elect who are church members.
