A deacon of The Church of Pentecost, Nana Offei Kwafo, has been enstooled as the new Akwamuhene Asomkahene.
The colourful coronation ceremony occurred at Akwamufie on Thursday, August 31, 2023, amidst rich cultural displays and dancing.
The Paramount Chief Akwamu Traditional Area, Odeneho Kwafo Akoto III, performed the coronation ceremony, with the Paramount Chief of New Juaben Traditional Area, Nana Kwadwo Yeboah Gyamfi, as the special guest of honour.
It was attended by chiefs and queens from the area, ministers of The Church of Pentecost, church members, families, friends, and people from far and near.
The church was represented by Apostle Mike Etrue (Koforidua Area Head), Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh (Director of Pentecost Men’s Ministry and National Coordinator of the Chieftaincy Ministry), Apostle Samuel Gakpetor (Agormenya Area Head).
The rest were Apostle Samuel Nana Yaw Agyei (Kade Area Head) and Apostle Emmanuel Agyei Kwafo (National Coordinator of Home and Urban Missions).
Other notable dignitaries from The Church of Pentecost were Pastor Dr Nicholas and Mrs Mabel Darko (former Finance and Administration Director, now retired), Elder Kwasi Mireku, and many others.
Apostle Emmanuel Agyei Kwafo, a native of Akwamufie, prayed for the commencement of the programme. A moment later, Odeneho Kwafo Akoto, Akwamuhene, welcomed all the guests and explained why Nana Offei Kwafo is now Akwamuhene’s Asomkahene.
The Akwamuhene explained that the humility of Deacon Nana Offei Kwafo, coupled with exemplary services to Akwamuman, won him the position.
Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh led the ministers present to dedicate a newly built residence for Nana Offei Kwafo, which could also serve as his palace.
