In an interview with TNP NEWS, the Lay Chairman of Koforidua Diocese, Mr Samuel Amo Duodu, said the lecture would be delivered by the Rt. Rev. Frederick Nnuroh, the past Bishop of Koforidua Diocese.

According to Mr Duodu, since the inception of the S.K. Newton Memorial Lectures in 2018, the Lay Movement Council has been able to demystify the success stories of knowledgeable past lay chairmen and also remembered them. They served at different levels and their contributions are worth emulating by all members in the church.
