Former President John Dramani Mahama on Sunday joined Archbishop Charles Agyinasare to worship at his Perez Chapel in Accra.
Reverend Agyinasare who recently celebrated his 60th birthday was also consecrated Archbishop of the Perez Chapel, formerly World Miracle Church International.
Speaking to the church, President Mahama recalled the story of Easter and used the opportunity to wish the congregation a happy Easter.
He recalled his exploits with Archbishop Agyinasare as young men in Tamale.
“Let me wish you a belated birthday greeting especially as I was unable to join you to commemorate the important milestone of 60 years”, the former President said.
“I have known the Archbishop for many decades, since his days as a young pastor. We are both old now”.
Mr. Mahama noted that as a politician and former President, he has remained close to the Archbishop and seeks his wise counsel when he needs it.
“I have no doubt that considering the Archbishop’s life as a pastor, his exemplary contribution to the growth of the church and to our national development, he has stood firm in his service to the Lord and he has through out the years remained steadfast and focused and I have no doubt that his rise to the level of an Archbishop has been ordained by the good Lord”, Mr. Mahama stated.
He congratulated the Archbishop, expressed his gratitude to him and also thanked him and the Perez Chapel for their prayers and support.
“Lordina, the children and myself, extend our warm felicitations to you, your family and the church”.
