 The twenty-ninth plenary assemblhy of Ghana Catholic Bishops' Conference (GCBC0 has ended at Goaso with a call on Ghanaians to elect honest leaders at the December 7, Polls.

 The plenary Assembly on the theme Building Peace in Ghana was attended by all the Bishops and the Apostolic Perfect of Donkorkrom Perfecture.

Opening the meeting, Most Rev. Lucas Abadamloora, President of Ghana Catholic Bishops' Conference (GCBC) said to improve moral standards in Ghana, it was necessary to help honest people get elected through the electoral system.

He said the participation in political life was an essential duty for every Catholic and all people of goodwill.

 Bishop Abadamloora, who is the Bishop of Navrongo-Bolgatanga, said it was important in this election year to help the nation to put in place the necessary structures and attitudes required for growing democracy.

 On Recent dispensation granted to Catholics to worship on Saturday December 6, instead of Sunday, December7, the Bishop said, "Let the critics know that by this adjustment we have not abrogated the law of the Lord's day but simply respecting and adjusting the two duties: Civic and Relegious."

In this case it is like saying: 'give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God."
