He teamed up with Professor Sorrie Conteh  – Ernest Bai Koroma University of Science and Technology – Magburuka, Sierra Leone (previously at the Biblical Studies Department of the All Nations University College, Koforidua-Ghana) in starting the journal. The Journal was assigned an ISSN by the George Padmore Library, Accra Ghana. The Journal was initially published two to three times annually.
