Rt. Rev. Gbordzoe was speaking at the induction service for pastors of the Church at the Kotobabi branch in Accra on Sunday. He asked Ghanaians to pray for God's guidance in selecting capable leaders who have the development of the nation at heart.

Prince Tefe, the Synod Clerk, charged the ordained pastors to use the pulpit as a tool for the promotion of peace and national development He also advised political parties to exhibit a high level of tolerance before, during and after the elections.
