Mid-West Ghana Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists Church retains
Sunyani, Jan 15 GNA - The Third Triennial Session of the Mid-West Ghana Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church taking place in Sunyani on Thursday re-elected its Executives to serve for another three years.
Pastors James Kwaku Badu, President, Fred Adjei Baah, Secretary and Elder Alfred Owusu Ansah, Treasurer, were apparently voted back to power following a report of the General Conference Auditing Service that they had done a good job for the past three years.
A statement issued by the General Conference to members of the Executive Committee of Mid-West Ghana Conference explained that the Service audited the balance sheets of the Mid-West Conference as of December 31, 2001 and 2002 and the related statements of financial activity, changes in fund balances and cash flows for the years ended.
"We conducted our audits in accordance with international auditing standards generally accepted by the Seventh-day Adventist denomination and in our opinion, as internal auditors of the General Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Mid-West Ghana Conference as of December 31, 2002", the statement said.
It added that the results of its (Mid-West Conference) operations and cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with international accounting principles generally accepted by Seventh-Day Adventists.
The report said: "In connection with our audit, we have also issued a report dated March 21, 2003, regarding the Mid-West Ghana Conference's compliance with the working policy of the General Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists, Western Africa Division." Some members of the retained Executive are embroiled in a court case with a section of members of the Church over their alleged misappropriation of funds and stealing of roofing sheets donated to the church.
