The Anglican Church of the Province of West Africa yesterday elected the Rt Revd Dr Solomon Johnson as its ninth Archbishop and Primate.
Dr Johnson, who is currently the Bishop of Gambia, was elected to be the next Primate for the province at a special synod held at Cuttington University, Suacoco, Bong Country, Liberia, between 25 to 28 September.
He succeeds The Most Revd Dr Justice Akrofi who has been Primate since 2003.
There has been no word of whether the synod agreed to the proposal to adopt a constitutional change that would see the creation of two internal provinces with two archbishops, in the style of the Church of England.
