The leader of Resurrection Power New Generation Church, Reverend Anthony Kwadwo Boakye, has died.
The sad news reaching GHPage indicates that the renowned man of God passed away just this afternoon, Wednesday, February 22, 2023.
In November 2021, Rev Boakye had been reported to have suffered a stroke, leaving him crippled and bedridden.
His wife debunked the rumours in an address to the congregation, clarifying that her husband was only taking a break from his ministry after 19 years for health reasons.
Since then Sofo Maame Boakye has been in charge of the helm of affairs including the church’s finances, perhaps until her husband returns.
But it appears all was not well with Rev Boakye as his wife made everyone believe as he has been snatched away by the cold hands of death.
In her stead as the financial controller, the wife of Rev Boakye was caught in a controversy in August 2022 after a CCTV footage captured her slapping a church elder in a dispute over offertory.
The surveillance footage that went viral showed the moment Mrs Boakye landed a hefty slap on the face of one of the hierarchies of the church in the financial control room.
This was despite an audio message from Rev Anthony Boakye to the elders of the church in May 2022, cautioning them not to allow his wife to handle the church’s finances.
In the audio message, the renowned man of God ordered that his wife be removed from the church’s finance department after hearing that her attitude had changed ever since he got sick and she got close to the church’s finances.
He noted that his wife should stick to her role as Sofo Maame and her wife duties and never involve herself in the church’s finances.
It appears Sofo Maame Boakye did not heed her husband’s instructions as the viral video gives a better picture of her little-known attitude in the church.
