According to him, Men of God can speak against the wrongs of politicians but this he said must be done devoid of biases.

Later in an interview with the media Rev Dapaah spoke against the practice of LGBTQ saying it is biblically and cultural ly wrong and so the need to nip it in the bud.

He however stated some major achievements the church has chalked under his tenure as a diocesan bishop this includes planting of about 20 churches spiritual renewal as well as acquiring a land for putting up a retreat center of which there would soon be a sod cutting ceremony
for the commencement of the project.

Meanwhile some individual members of the church who have contributed immensely to the development of the church have been awarded.

One of such personalities is Nana Dr Appiagyei Dankanwoso the chief linguist of the Juaben traditional council, alongside Nana Otuo Serebuo,Juabenmanhene and Chairman of Council of State.
