The newly inducted Accra Presbytery Chairman of the Global Evangelical Church, Rev. Mawuli Dzidula Agudogo, has called on the Judiciary to see the exposé by Anas Aremeyaw Anas on the institution as an opportunity for reform, rather than a dent on its image as they ensure justice in the country.

He said this during an induction and consecration service of executives and presbyters of the Accra and Tema Presbyteries of the church.

 

Rev. Agudogo said if the allegations were found to be true, they would not dent the image of the judiciary but rather create an opportunity for the service to clean up its ranks. That, he said, would help make the judiciary a better and stronger institution than it was perceived to be and also restore the confidence of the public in the Judicial Service.

Corruption

Addressing the issue of corruption, Rev. Agudogo said it existed at all levels of the society and that it would take stronger institutions and individual discipline to purge the country of corruption.

Rev. Agudogo urged leaders within the Accra presbytery to sacrifice more in their service to God and mankind to make the presbytery grow. According to him, leadership was all about service and not lording over others.

He said it was unfortunate that some Christian leaders had allowed self interest to supersede the interest of those they led. He added that most Christian leaders took decisions without waiting for the guidance and leading of the Lord. According to him, if the motive for taking a leadership role was wrong, everything done would be wrong.

He, therefore, said anyone who wished to take up a leadership role must first of all be humble to God and be willing to serve. "Leaders are not chosen to lord over the people, but to serve them," he said.

The Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, Rev. Dr Edem Tettey, who inducted Rev. Mawuli Dziluda Agudogo and his executive charged them to lead exemplary and Christlike lives and propagate the gospel.

The other members of the executive are the presbytery clerk, Rev. Dr M.K. Alloteh; Presbyter Ken Kuleke, Treasurer; Catechist Richard Mannasah, Member and Presbyters Carl Banini and Victoria Norgbey, both Synod committee members.
