The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Unity Group of Companies, Dr Kwame Kyei Baffuor, has noted how significant it is for Ghanaians to continue to be grateful to God for 2014.
He pointed out that despite the economic hardship coupled with other challenges encountered last year; the citizens have every right to express their appreciation to God for saving the nation from the dreadful Ebola disease.
He noted that while people of sister West African countries have been battling the diseases Ghana was rather chosen by the World Health Organization as the Ebola Emergency Protecting Equipment Centre. This he believed was clear manifestation that Ghana is a chosen country by God.
"Ghanaians irrespective of our religious backgrounds we must continue to give thanks to God for showering His peace and blessing bountifully on us in 2014," he remarked.
He added, "No matter how difficult our financial situation was in 2014, as a nation, we must keep expressing our gratitude to God, if for nothing at all, the peace we are enjoying as compared to sister countries.''
Dr. Baffuor was speaking at the 2015 edition of annual all night thanksgiving at his complex Holy Grounds at Atonsu in Kumasi.
The annual thanksgiving service, an initiative of Dr. Baffuor, is normally sponsored by his companies such Unity Oil, Sports Hotel, Light Fm and Light TV.
He called on Ghanaians, especially, the youth to live by the principles of God coupled with hard work to enable them to become successful persons since there is no shortcut to success.
He said God has given man dominion over the other creatures indicating that He has not created any one to suffer, but with hard work one can develop his potentials to become an icon in society.
