Top Ghanaian religious leader Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah has expressed misgiving about how one of the respected men of God in Africa Pastor Chris Oyakilome walked over them during his recent visit to Ghana.
Rev. Ankrah, who is the Apostle General of the Royal House Chapel, was unhappy with the leader of the Christ Embassy Church of Nigeria, who failed to call on any of the religious leaders in his host country ahead of his crusade at the Black Star Square.
Twelve major roads were closed to traffic temporarily ahead of the ‘Night of Bliss’ event which saw over 40,000 people attending.
Speaking on Starr Chat Wednesday, Rev. Ankrah described Pastor Chris’ attitude as “disrespect and disdain” towards Ghanaian pastors.
“He didn’t consult any of the spiritual fathers of the land when he came to Ghana… he used politicians to disrespect Ghanaian pastors,” Rev. Ankrah told his host Bola Ray.
Rev. Ankrah was born to J. O. Ankrah and Victoria Ziddah on February 23, 1960, the 22nd of his father’s 24 children and the fifth of his mother’s seven children.
His mother, a Presbyterian, had him baptized as Samuel in the Presbyterian Church. He attended Accra High School and Saint John’s Grammar Secondary School in Accra. He was inspired to pursue a career in religion following a visit by the evangelistic group Joyful Way Incorporated on campus.
He later attended the University of Ghana, where he started the Showers of Blessing Incorporated (SOBI) evangelistic ministry in 1984. He also holds certificates in Christian Leadership, from Haggai Institute in Singapore and Management and Entrepreneurship certificate from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
