Abetifi (E/R), Aug
25, GNA – The Reverend Professor Cephas Narh Omenyo has been elected as the new
Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG).
This was at the
church’s general assembly held in Abetifi in the Kwahu East District.
He received an overwhelming
endorsement by the delegates – garnering 96.76 per cent of the votes cast.
This came after his
two other contestants, the Rev J.O.Y. Mante, and the Rev Hubert Oppong, had
withdrawn their nomination.
The Rev Prof Omenya
is the Provost of the College of Education, University of Ghana, with vast
experience in teaching, research and administration.
He has served on a
number of boards and committees both in the church and the university, and
until his elevation, was the Head of the Grace Presbyterian Church, West Legon.
He was ordained in
1987 and succeeds the Rev Professor Emmanuel Martey.
