Reverend Anthony Kwadwo Boakye, the leader of Resurrection Power New Generation Church, has died, GHPage has learned.
The sad news has reached us that the renowned man of God died this afternoon, Wednesday, February 22, 2023.
Rev Boakye was reported to have suffered a stroke in November 2021, leaving him crippled and bedridden.
In an address to the congregation, his wife debunked the rumors, clarifying that her husband was only taking a break from his ministry after 19 years for health reasons.
Sofo Maame Boakye has been in charge of affairs, including the church’s finances, since then, possibly until her husband returns.
However, it appears that all was not well with Rev Boakye, as his wife led everyone to believe.
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’s 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.
