Of Interest:
French Togoland became Togo in 1960. Gen. Gnassingbe EYADEMA, installed as military ruler in 1967, ruled Togo with a heavy hand for almost four decades. Despite the facade of multi-party elections instituted in the early 1990s, the government was largely dominated by President EYADEMA, whose Rally of the Togolese People (RPT) party has maintained power almost continually since 1967 and maintains a majority of seats in today's legislature. Upon EYADEMA's death in February 2005, the military installed the president's son, Faure GNASSINGBE, and then engineered his formal election two months later. Democratic gains since then allowed Togo to hold its first relatively free and fair legislative elections in October 2007. After years of political unrest and condemnation from international organizations for human rights abuses, Togo is finally being re-welcomed into the international community.

Manager History:

I came to the Message in 1985 while I was working as cashier with one of my friends. I was born in September 1965, in the capital of Togo, called Lomé. When I came to the Message, I changed my job and I became a supervisor at a printing house. I was a graduate in financial and enterprise management, but in my intention I wanted to be a good businessman before meeting the Lord. Four years after my conversion, I was called to the ministry. Before coming to the Lord, I didn't have a Christian background. All that I knew was my family idols. I noticed a plague in my family which is alcoholism. Almost the whole family drank. It was that plague which brought me to Christ through the Message of the hour. I am now a father of six children, a boy and five girls, husband of one wife. How it is sweet and good to work with Voice of God Recordings in service for five years. Since that time, I share the vision of Voice of God in my country. For the work to move forward, because of the past experiences, we formed a management committee in order to let every participant have their eyes in the management of VGR's activities in Togo.
