On February 6, 2020, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints hosted former Ghana President John Dramani Mahama and his entourage with Elder Marcus B. Nash, Africa West Area President of the Church, along with his counselors, Elders Edward Dube and Hugo E. Martinez.
Elder Nash told His Excellency Mahama that the Church sees itself as a good citizen of Ghana and want to help the people economically and spiritually. He also stated that he knows Ghanaians are good, faithful and noble people. He also invited His Excellency to visit one of our churches anytime he would like to. Nash spoke about families and said that Ghana will only be as strong as their families. He complimented His Excellency on his strong character.
Former President, His Excellency Mahama said he was very impressed with the Church. After passing by the Temple and Church grounds for many years, this is his first time visiting. After seeing the beauty of the premises and the peaceful nature, he said “…God must certainly live here”.
Mr Mahama said, “We’re checking with key stakeholders on why the NDC wanted to visit the church. We have met other religious groups and we have said that the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints is a key player in the religious community and we must come and connect and express our opinions and hear from anyone.’
