The Presiding Bishop of the Perez Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare is calling for peace after the December 7 general elections.

According to him, “as a nation if we want peace, all must play their role to deepen our vibrant democracy”.

Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare made the comment while preaching to his congregation on the theme: “Fighting for our common destiny” just two days after the crucial elections.

Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) defeated incumbent President John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress with 53.85% of the total votes cast. President Mahama however trailed behind with 44.40% thus truncating his second term bid.

The country has since been commended by the international community for the peaceful manner the election was conducted.

For his part, Bishop Agyin-Asare also charged the citizenry to work towards ensuring the peace we enjoy is kept.

Quoting Jeremiah 29: 7 to buttress his point, the man of God urged Ghanaians to “seek the peace of the city where we are called for in the peace of that city we also find peace.
