6 pastors of Divine Healer’s Church seek injunction against General Overseer

Six pastors of the Divine Healer’s Church are seeking an injunction against the General Overseer and five other leaders of the church to restrain them from holding an Emergency Church Congress to amend the Constitution of the Church.

The plaintiffs are praying the court for an order directing the defendants to comply with the judgment of the court, dated June 6, 2023 which gave clear guidance on the exit of the General Overseer

According to the Plaintiffs – Apostle Daniel Mensah Attakpah, Rev. Philip Attakpah, Johannies Ollenu, Rev. Jonathan Nyabu, Pastor Solomon Amenyo and Pastor Ebenezer Nartey – in a suit filed at an Accra High Court on June 18, 2024 Apostle Adade and the other defendants have abandoned the judgment delivered last year and are busily manipulating to change the constitution of the Church to prolong his stay.

The plaintiffs noted that the second term of Apostle Adade and the five other defendants – Maxwell Aryeetey Foster, Kenneth Ashaley Addo, Emmanuel Acquaye and Dora Edith Osekre – had ended and that Apostle Adade is unconstitutionally serving a fourth term in office, as the General Overseer, after his first term ended in 2011.

They Claim that the General Overseer of the Church, which has over 1,900 branches in Ghana, formed an unconstitutional College of Apostles who announced to the Congress that the Holy Spirit had directed that he should continue in office without any election and that “He who is against the Holy Spirit should stand up.”

The Plaintiffs alleged that in an amended constitution, which has been sent to the General Pentecost and Charismatic Church for adoption at an Emergency Congress, the defendants have changed the age limit for retirement to 70 years and that those already 70 must serve an additional three years before retiring.

The Plaintiffs mentioned that “Defendants have hijacked every activity of the church and have together formed a team of leadership of the church striving to serve in their position for life, much to the detriment of an intimidated membership, scared of the defendant’s vindictiveness and raw victimization.”
