The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG), Rt Rev Prof Emmanuel Martey, has promised that the church is still committed to partnering Government in providing quality education for all.

According to the Moderator, the Presbyterian Church would continue to blaze the trail and set the pace for quality education in Ghana, urging Government to wake up to the occasion. He gave the assurance when he interacted with the Volta Regional Minister, Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo at his residence.

The Moderator noted that the church which is the oldest in the country is on record to be church under which formal education began in the country. The church could boast of two private universities; Presbyterian University College (PUC) and the Graduate Institution also at Akropong-Akuapim, which is the only private tertiary institution with a presidential charter to award doctorate degrees.

He announced that the PUC is also the leading private university in the country, having been rated as the fourth after an evaluation of universities in the country.

Rt Rev Prof Martey said the feat was evident and confirmed the many success stories that the Presbyterian Church had chalked in the country for about two centuries of its existence in Ghana.

He also called for assistance to rebuild one of the Presbyterian schools in the Hohoe Municipality which was destroyed by a rain storm, three years ago.

Rt Rev Prof Martey added that the church had also contributed tremendously in the area of health and agricultural in the country, adding, ?The PCG is committed to partnering Government to improve the quality life of the people.?

The Moderator also bemoaned the winner-takes-all syndrome which he said, was retrogressing the country and called for unity.

He again called on Ghanaians to support and pray for President Mahama and his Ministers because ?whether we like it or not, they are our leaders and their successes will affect all of us.?

Rt Rev Prof Martey also commended the Regional Minister and the Regional Security for the excellent manner in which they handled the Nkonya-Alavanyo conflict.
