Flashback: I’m thinking of becoming a lay preacher - Mahama

After losing the 2016 elections to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, former President John Dramani Mahama in 2017 hinted that he intends to join the Kingdom business.

The former President, now the flagbearer for the opposition, National Democratic Congress spoke about his intentions to become a lay preacher to share the word of God with fellow Christians.

He made this revelation when the CEO of EIB Network, Kwabena Anokye Adisi, popularly referred to as Bola Ray presented his book titled ‘It Is Possible’ to him at his residence here in Accra.

“Nobody will save your soul for you. Salvation is based on the pureness of your own heart. Not the pureness of your pastor’s heart,” Mahama noted.
