Serious confusion has erupted in The African Faith Tabernacle Church (Odiifoɔ Nkansah Asɔre), a popular indigenous spiritual Church founded in 1919 by the late Prophet Kwame Nkansah.
This is as a result of the selection of a new National Leader for the Church after the demise of the former leader Superior Prophet David Kwaku Nkansah 2nd who died at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Wednesday, 16th February 2022.
It is a known fact and in accordance with Article seven (7) of the Church’s Constitution that “The Prophet has all the power to appoint a Successor who shall hold power for life”.
But some Elders, Trustees and Executives of the Church are resisting the ordination of one James Nkansah Junior a nephew of the late Superior Prophet Nkansah whom he appointed to be his Successor because they believe he is too young to hold such a position.
It is alleged that in view of this, Okyeame Stephen Frimpong who was the Linguist to the late Superior Prophet and poised to takeover over as the new National Leader of the Church together with some three others namely; Samuel Kwadwo Nkansah, Chief Pastor Baah Assannor who happens to be Secretary of the Church and Chief Pastor Francis Appiah broke into the bedroom of the late Superior Prophet at the African Faith Tabernacle National headquarters in Akyem Anyinam in the Eastern Region and made away with some vital documents (will) of the late Superior Prophet.
Mr. Kwabena Boadu, eldest son of late Superior Prophet Nkansah 2nd reported the case to the Akyem Anyinam Police on 15th April, 2022 and the four were invited and granted inquiry bail.
Speaking in a telephone interview with Asta Fm’s Nana Kwadwo Adu, Odiifoɔba Panin Kwabena Boadu said that the actions of the Pastors to overturn the will of his late father is against the Church’s regulations and shall seek redress in the court of law.
He called on members of the African Faith Terbenacle Church nationwide to remain calm as the Constitution of the Church as well as the Laws of Ghana will let truth prevail and there will be peace at the end.
Meanwhile, two of the suspects thus Okyeame Stephen Frimpong and Chief Pastor Francis Appiah when contactee about the issue via telephone calls confirmed their invitation to the Police in respect to such a case or event but declined to come out because they are still waiting for further actions from the Police and Complainants if there would be a Court action or otherwise.
