The bishop of the Potter’s House, and international television preacher, T.D. Jakes has described Ghana’s president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as a transformational leader changing the fortunes of the country.
In short video clips shared on Twitter, the globally-known preacher read out from some notes that were in his hand, to his congregation, while announcing to them that President Akufo-Addo will speak at an event at their church later this month.
The event, the International Leadership Summit, will be graced by the president among other leaders, he added. Praising the president further, T.D. Jakes explained how he has been impressed by the works of Akufo-Addo, which have led to big brands like Twitter setting up offices in Ghana.
“I have, for some time, watched with amazement, the president of the Republic of Ghana and the Commander-In-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo, will speak at our International Leadership Summit this month”.
“And, in case you are not up to speed on how things are going in Africa; Ghana is one of Africa’s wealthiest countries; he [President Akufo-Addo] has completely turned it around.”
“It is the largest producer of gold on the continent and the world’s second-largest producer of cocoa”, Jakes explained, adding: “Under President Akufo-Addo’s leadership, Ghana has emerged as a booming tech centre – even welcoming Twitter”.
