The traditional leader reiterated the call on government not to deploy Ghanaian Soldiers to Niger for the restoration of democracy but diplomacy should be employed.

He backed the call made by the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church Ghana (E.P. Church Ghana), Rt. Rev. Dr. Lt Col. Bliss Divine. K. Agbeko, for Ghana and other neighbouring African nations not to commit troops to Niger for the restoration of democracy.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ho Central Constituency Hon. Benjamin Komla Kpodo also adding his voice to the Niger coup suggested an alternative means of restoration democracy to the country rather military forces.

He said religious and traditional leaders should be able to intervene in resolving the instability in Niger.

The joint Synod offered an opportunity for the General Assembly to make decisions on issues affecting the ministry’s direction of the church.

The 3-day program which begun on Friday, August 18 and ended on Sunday, August 20, 2023, paid attention to Eco Theology, human sexuality, global climate change, ministry tools and the need to review the management of the America congregation among others.
