Ghana is hosting the celebration in collaboration with Togo, Benin, and Ivory Coast.
Bishop Agyepong stated that some of activities earmarked for the anniversary included; devotions, visitation to dignitaries and thanksgiving service to light the centenary torch on Sunday May 5, at the Headquarters in Odorkor in Accra.
Ghana has a special place in the kingdom of God, Ghana is the nation of God therefore if this Torch should live anywhere then it must come to Ghana and truly is in God, he added.
According to him, the Torch is a symbol of honour and that anyone who beholds the torch receives blessing.
