Atta Mills, Ghana’s former president
Before the passing away of Ghana’s former president in 2012 that cut short his administration, Mills was often criticized for turning the Castle, the seat of government into a prayer camp. He had stressed the need for Ghanaians to continue to pray for the government for divine direction to enable it to lead the state effectively. Mills even went ahead to propose an annual national prayer and thanksgiving day by Muslims on every last Friday in January and first Sunday in February for Christians. When criticized over this, he allegedly stated that he wouldn’t mind turning the whole nation into a prayer camp.
