The Conventions, which will span nine weeks, will be under the theme: “Remain Close to Jehovah.” They are being organized in 22 destinations countrywide and that for Accra would be held at Baatsonaa on the Spintex Road.
A release, which was signed by the News Service Co-ordinator of the Conventions, Mr Samuel Gaskin, and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Monday in Accra, said the programmes would be held in English, Dangme, Ewe, Frafra, Ga, Nzema and Twi. At certain locations, including Accra, the American Sign Language will also be used.
