The Global Evangelical Church (GEC), has appealed to Ghanaians, especially the leaders and supporters of the political parties, to respect and accept the verdict of the Supreme Court on the Election Petition.

The petition was brought before the Court by the main opposition New Patriotic Party, against the ruling National Democratic Congress on the electoral victory of President John Dramani Mahama. Judgement is expected on August 29.

A communiqué issued at the end of a mini Synod of the GEC at Nungua in Accra also called on leaders of the Church to demonstrate neutrality in national politics to qualify them to be true peace makers.

The mini Synod was on the theme: “Knowing God the Holy Spirit.”

The communiqué commended Government, the citizenry, sister churches, partner churches and organisations internally and externally for their continuing support.

It also urged the Government to take tougher measures to curb corruption.

The Synod called on the Government and educational institutions to inculcate the core values of truth and honesty in the citizenry.

It encouraged churches in Ghana to emphasise the power and ministry of the Holy Spirit.

The communiqué expressed gratitude to God for His divine favour as well as the spiritual and physical direction He gives to the leadership and members of the GEC worldwide.

The Synod thanked God for the peace prevailing in Ghana.

GEC, a vibrant Bible-believing Church, accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and believes in the full manifestation of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit.

The Church has a membership of more than 100,000, about 200 Ministers in active service and 675 congregations distributed throughout the country.

The Church has branches in the United Kingdom, United States, Norway, Cote d'Ivoire and Togo with missionary efforts in countries like Canada.

The Church has a Synod which serves as its Parliament. The Synod Committee, a representative council is the decision-making body of the Church.
