The President of Hungary, János Áder, has decorated the Founder and Leader of World Miracle Outreach, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh – an International Evangelist, with the highest national award of his country: the Knight of Cross of the Order of Merit of Hungary.
The conferment was done on behalf of President Áder by the Hungarian Ambassador to Ghana, Tamás Fehér, at a brief and colourful ceremony on Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at the Hungarian Embassy in Accra.
Dr. Tetteh was honoured by the Hungarian government for his outstanding performance and instrumentality in building the bilateral and business relationship between Ghana and Hungary.
Conferring the Honour on Dr. Tetteh, the Hungarian Ambassador mentioned that this is the second time a Ghanaian is receiving this award in the history of Hungary.
Addressing the gathering, Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, Claudia Turbay Quintero, said the award is in recognition of Dr. Tetteh’s uniqueness in every sphere of life.
She added that Dr. Tetteh’s leadership is exemplary and worthy of emulation.
Former President John Agyekum Kufuor, who graced the occasion, underscored that Dr. Tetteh is deserving of the award.
He contended that Dr. Tetteh contributed immensely toward opening the Hungarian Embassy in Ghana.
“Rev. Tetteh is the embodiment of relations between the two countries – Ghana and Hungary,” former President Kufuor noted.
On her part, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, admitted that Dr. Tetteh has been of great help to her – commending him on his passion for the Ghana-Hungary relationship and how this can be harnessed for the mutual benefit of their friendship.
In a brief remark, Dr. Tetteh – who is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA), a tele- Evangelist, Philanthropist and Counsellor – expressed appreciation for the honour done him, and dedicated the award to God.
“If you have the opportunity to do something, do it with your all. The relationship between Ghana and Hungary is through the Jospong Group of Companies (JGC),” he stressed.
He however pointed out that “Any politician who does not love and fear God, does not merit your vote”.
