It thus comes as no surprise that the Ho branch of Ghana Police Church held a special pre-election crusade.

According to media reports, this crusade was to seek spiritual protection and guidance of God in the impending general election.

The event was reportedly well attended by over 500 people spanning security personnel, civilians and members of the clergy. At the open-space ooutreach program, the Ghana Police Church prayed for the peace in Ghana to be sustained, during and even after the elections.

Reverend Father George Arthur, the Religious Affairs Director of the Ghana Police Service, said the Police Administration organised to seek the favour of God in the affairs of the nation.

Rev. Fr. Arthur, who is also an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) added besides enforcing the electoral laws, they were also seeking fortification from God for the exercise.
