From Sebastian R. Freiku
The Anglican Diocese of Kumasi has marked the 45th Anniversary of its creation and inauguration with the honouring of 146 persons for contributing to the existence of the church over the period.
Among the awardees were Oheneba Owusu Afriyie, Otumfuo Apagyahene, Mrs. Joana Appiah Dwomoh, former Deputy Regional Minister in the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC) era, Pharmacist James Ohemeng Kyei, National President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana and first Presiding Member of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), and Ing. Nana Poku Agyemang, Kumasi Metropolitan Director of the Department of Urban Roads (DUR).
They were awarded with the Bishop’s Badge by the Anglican Archdiocese of the Province of West Africa at a special ceremony.
Archbishop Prof. Yinka Sarfo indicated that the awardees have, in diverse ways, distinguished themselves in the discharge of their duties to the Anglican Church since its inception 45 years ago, and, therefore, it was proper that they were recognised by the church.
Mrs. Appiah Dwomoh, on behalf of the awardees, expressed appreciation to the church for the honour and recognition.
