Others honoured included Samuel Atta Akyea, Minister of Works and Housing; Osaberima Adusei Peasah IV, Tafohene, among others.
The honourees were presented with well crafted desktop plaques in recognition of their ‘undying’ support towards the growth of the Akyem Abuakwa Presbytery.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Ofori-Atta expressed delight in the decision by the church to recognize the good works of its members.
He assured them of ‘good things’ to come to Ghana and said the budget he presented in Parliament would solve a lot of problems in the country, adding that with President Akufo-Addo at the helm, the country’s future prospects were bright.
