President John Mahama has said God will deliver him from any assassination attacks.

"God is my protector, my steps were guided here and God is with me," he said

He was commenting on the assassination attempt by one Charles Antwi, who is now in prison for wanting to kill the president.

In July, a gunman confessed in court he wanted to kill the president after he was arrested with a loaded and cocked locally made pistol at the Ring Way Gospel branch of the Assemblies of God Church in Accra, where the President Mahama fellowships.

He was later sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by the Accra Circuit Court.

"For a person in the position I am, you take decisions that might not be palatable with everybody and people have their different orientations and different motivations.

"You do your job and there are risks that come with your job, I believe that God guided my steps." The President said
