Former US trade representative to Africa and wife of Duncan Williams, Rosa Whitaker, has said that her husband’s prayer is responsible for the appreciation the cedi is currently witnessing.
She was speaking in an exclusive interview with TV3 from her base in Washington.
It would be recalled that the Archbishop of the Action Faith Chapel International commanded the cedi to rise during a prayer with his congregation after a consistent decline in the value of the local currency.
Many including the now Ghana Ambassador to the Netherlands, Dr Tony Aidoo criticized the Archbishop and described his prayer as a ‘comic relief’.
But Rosa Whitaker who is also President and Founder of the Whitaker Group said she believes her husband’s prayer saved the cedi.
“I don’t know why people thought it was funny, if you believe in the unlimited power of God and you have a currency crisis, why would you not apply prayer to that, it’s just that they just caught him publicly praying for that. He always prays for the Ghanaian economy,” she said.
She agreed that prayer alone will not resolve the crisis but said that she and her husband believe in the power of prayer.
