MrDuodu urged the presbyters to require managerial, accounting and administrative skills to enable them developthe church.

He said “for this session, we are looking forward for the Good Lord to bless us with wisdom to plan, execute and manage the affairs of this congregation, to lessen the financial burden on members so that they can focus on their spiritual growth.”
