Ghanaians have been asked by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to remain unified and put in extra effort to guarantee a prosperous 2023.

“Let’s work hard, stay together, and go forward. I’m crossing my fingers that 2023 will be better than 2022,” he stated.


The President made the announcement after attending the 2023 New Year’s Eve service at Accra Ridge Church.

He was escorted to the watch-night service by his wife Rebecca, members of his household, the Chief of Staff, Madam Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, and representatives of the administration.

Songs of praise and thanksgiving to God for guiding the nation through the hardships of 2022 were played during the watch-night service.

Prayers of intercession were said for the people, the government, and all state institutions.

Prayers were said for the country’s fortunes to turn around, for the sick, the poor, the widowed, the family, the church, for the spiritual growth of Ghanaians, and for the unity and prosperity of the whole country.

In a sermon, Church pastor Reverend Father Reginald Lawson urged Ghanaians to “return to God” in order to save their nation from the socioeconomic problems of 2022.

“We have seen what 2022 has in store for us… We just know that God is real and will see us through the year 2023.

“We should devote ourselves to God and give our all to Him, and He will deliver the nation from its problems.

Let’s turn back to God because, he remarked, “we are powerless to accomplish anything apart from God’s might.

According to Rev. Fr. Lawson, Ghana had a challenging 2022, just like the rest of the world.

But in spite of such difficulties, “God has been available.”

If we turn to God, He is always there to save us. God is always accessible. The Ebenezer moment for Ghana should occur at the end of this year, he said.

Although the preacher claimed that some of the “issues” of 2022 were “self-inflicted,” he also asserted that Ghanaians had the potential to improve the situation.

“As we rejoice in what God has accomplished for us, now is the time to ponder. Let’s accept that God has something nice in store for us.

“At this point, we must be certain that God’s grace has carried the nation through all of its difficulties. Let’s look ahead and make amends for our errors from the past. We should pray to God. Because we are powerless to accomplish anything on our own, let us turn back to God. He argued, “We shall always need God.

Rev. Fr. Lawson urged the congregation to play their part as citizens in boosting the economy as he concluded his sermon.

“Keep in mind that God cannot do everything for us; we must also play a part.

As citizens and contributors to our country, we are required to do our share to ensure that 2023 will be yet another year of peace and progress for Ghana, he continued.
