Keep your zips closed -Very Rev. Dr Gbordzoe advises pastors,Saturday, 23 August 2014

A former Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, Very Rev. Dr Emmanuel K. Gbordzoe, has advised pastors who want to go far with their calling to keep their zips closed.
“As for the young girls, if you hide and do something with them, one day somebody will come and preach a hot sermon and they will go and confess that this is what this or that pastor did.”
“This will retard the progress of your ministry, marriage and business and even cut your journey short. You may even be dismissed from the ministry. That is the end of your ministry; one sexual act takes away all the ministry work God has given you,” he said at the ordination ceremony of 25 pastors in Accra.
According to the church’s doctrine, a pastor qualifies for ordination after graduating from the Global Theological Seminary (GTS) and serving and ‘pastoring’ a congregation for two years.
The ordination ceremony at the packed auditorium of the Trinity Parish at Kotobabi was characterised by praises, worship and cheers on a day th…

Out of the 16,000 Ivorian exiles registered in 2011,  those resident in Ghana were 9,631  according to last month’s statistics.
The ambassador, who was speaking at the 54th independence anniversary celebrations of his country in Accra, reiterated calls for all Ivoirians living in exile to return home and contribute their quota to national development.

In the speech that also centred on economic growth, security, latest political developments and relations between the two countries, the ambassador said the mut…

Imposter grabbed for possessing cocaine at Pantang,Tuesday, 12 August 2014

A man who allegedly posed as a drug addict in need of rehabilitation at the Pantang Hospital in Accra has been arrested for possessing a drug suspected to be cocaine.
It took the vigilance of the nurses at Ward 5 of the hospital, where the suspect, Robert Frimpong, was admitted to, to detect the fishy scheme when Frimpong, who had been on admission for three days, asked for permission to go home and come back the next day. The permission was granted and Frimpong returned on July 17, 2014, as promised.   A source at the hospital, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said as a convention in the hospital, when new patients were received, a small party was held in their honour. It said it was during the party that two young men who claimed they were Frimpong’s relatives but who acted suspiciously came to the ward to visit him. It said because of the party, the two visitors were asked to wait. “After the party, the two visitors met Frimpong and handed over detergents and a small black plastic ba…
