The President wants this event to commence on Friday, December 2, 2016 through to Sunday, December 4, 2016.
The President is further urging all to dedicate their specific days of worship- Friday, Saturday and Sunday to pray to God to intercede for Ghana as the nation fast and pray for continuous peace and stability.
