President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said his Christian faith has shaped his professional life as a lawyer and politician.

This, he said, has heavily influenced his vision for the country and Africa’s transformation as a whole.

The President said despite being a lawyer; he has always tried not to lose sight of his Christian faith.

“In my own life as an adult, whether as a lawyer or politician, I have always tried not to lose sight of the fact that my Christian faith should be an integral part of the practice of my chosen profession. However, in the public mind, being a lawyer can pose dilemmas that might be difficult to reconcile with being a Christian.”

“If the practice of law is a minefield for a Christian, it’s double jeopardy for a Christian politician and, even more so, for a Christian President”, he said.

President Akufo-Addo disclosed this when he delivered a speech at the inaugural Africa lecture at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC, USA, on Thursday, May 5.
