Dr Roberts who lives the country after the prayer session to Congo-Kinshasa for ministration said he would return to Ghana for a crusade and bring with him food for the people and a medical team.
Dr Tetteh called on Ghanaians to pray unceasingly for peace especially “in this crucial times”.
“The peace of Ghana is so critical and as a people we must use every single opportunity to pray for the nation,” he stressed.
