COP Elder Installed Paramount Chief

Elder Dr Abraham Okrah of the Adenta District of The Church of Pentecost has been installed the Omanhene (Paramount Chief) of the Debibi Traditional Area in the Bono Region.

Under the stool name Obrempong Osabarima Amoako Gago II, a thanksgiving service has been held to climax activities marking his coronation.

The well-attended service, which was officiated by the Haatso Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle William Boakye Agyarko, took place on Sunday, April 28, 2024.

Delivering the sermon at the service, Apostle Boakye Agyarko spoke on the theme “Justice.” His main text was taken from l Samuel 8:1-19.

He said the main reason why God granted the people of Israel their request for a kjng through Prophet Samuel was that the people were unhappy with the way the two sons of Samuel appointed as judges over Israel were perverting justice for their selfish gains and interests.

He emphasised that the cardinal function of a chief is to administer justice.  He said justice, when well served, brings peace and harmony, fairness and togetherness, unity, love and belongingness. 

He, however, stressed that when justice is denied, conflicts, strives and all sorts of disturbances occur, saying, “The absence of justice hinders the development of the affected area or community.”

Apostle Boakye Agyarko, therefore, admonished all traditional rulers in the Church and those in places of authority at workplaces to always pray for wisdom and insight as requested by King Solomon to be fair and transparent to all manner of persons when their issues come before them for adjudication.

Apostle Boakye Agyarko then led the congregation to pray for Elder Dr. Obrempong Osabarima Amoako Gago ll.

Present at the thanksgiving service were Chiefs and Queen mothers in the Area, Pastor Paul Adzebill who is the Area Secretary, Pastor Emmanuel Oppong Donkor Adenta District Pastor, Pastor William Amponsah Asiamah who is the Area Coordinator of the Chieftaincy Ministry and some members of the Area committee.
