The crusade, organized under the auspices of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach headed by Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, would take place at Pavilion D of the Trade Fair Centre in Accra.
Dr. Tetteh, who met Dr. Roberts and his team on arrival, said the purpose of the crusade, which had been running annually for the past 20 years, was to pray for the nation and to believe Ghana would prosper and become a developed nation.
He said the fight against corruption was the responsibility of all Ghanaians, and therefore “we must all be anti-corruption ambassadors.”
He urged Ghanaians not to politicise the way corruption is handled, as corruption “is not NDC, NPP, or CPP, but like sin, corruption is simply corruption.”
Dr. Tetteh said corruption had been around for a long time and those who could fight it were just, honest and God-fearing people, and stressed that everyone, in every sector had a responsibility to help fight it.
Dr. Roberts said he was happy to be back home in Ghana; being an honorary Ghanaian.
“I have a great love for this country and its people and I come with my heart and my faith to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I bring the peace-maker, which is Jesus Christ, the son of God,” he said.
Rev. Paul Noughton, immediate past Chairman of the Benny Hinn Ministries, also expressed his joy at being back in Ghana, and described himself as an honorary Ghanaian.
“Don’t let the skin colour fool you, I am an honorary Ghanaian. My Ga name is Nii Ayitey, my Twi name is Kofi and my Ewe name is Agbenyo.
You’ll see every tribe in Ghana inside my spirit and I’m happy to be back in this beautiful country,” he said.
He said they were ambassadors of Ghana all over the world, adding that they were not here only to celebrate Christ but also what Christ was doing in the nation.
