For Attacking Mills’s Christian Attitude…
News Desk Report
There are credible indications that since The Informer carried a story of how the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Mr. Williams Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo had nicodemusly sent his wife, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, to Prophet TB Joshua, there have been calls on the NPP flagbearer to publicly apologise to the late President John Evans Atta Mills, even posthumously.
Many Ghanaians, particularly Christians could recall the way and manner Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP had always attacked Professor Mills for turning the Castle into a religious backyard.
They even made mockery of President Mills’s worship with Christians and Muslims alike. For fear of being labelled a religious hypocrite, Nana Akufo-Addo asked Mr. Stephen Asamoah Boateng, popularly known as Asabee , a leading member of the NPP to send his wife, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo to Prophet TB Joshua in Lagos, ostensibly to seek blessing towards this year’s elections.
By popular request, we re-produce the story first published last week Friday.

To TB Joshua To

News Desk Report
When the late Ghana’s President, Professor John Evans Atta Mills was alive, the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Mr. Williams Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his party had been insulting him of being too much Christian; and that he had turned the Castle into a prayer camp.
Members of the NPP even had mocked Prof Evans Mills’s association with Prophet T. Balogun Joshua, the Founder and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations.
It is, however, becoming clear, per credible reports that Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo, now believes that it is God who makes and unmakes Kings, Presidents and Chiefs.
It is now emerging that a former Minister for Information in the erstwhile Kufuor administration and once NPP MP for Mfantsiman, Mr. Stephen Asamoah Boateng a.k.a. Asabee, a long-standing member of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, was sent by his party’s Presidential Candidate, Nana Addo, to go with the wife, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, in an effort to seek the divine face of God, through the famous Nigerian Prophet, T. B. Joshua, to help them win the upcoming December 07 general elections; an election he has told the world was going to be an “All-Die-Be-Die” affair, since he needs to win power at “All Cost”.
Credible reports available to the Informer, indicate that the trip, however, turned out to be unfruitful, details of which we hold on for now.
However, to keep our reader in light we publish below, unedited, story and pictures of Mrs. Akufo-Addo’s trip, as captured by last Tuesday edition of the Pleasures Magazine.
REBECCA AKUFO-ADDO VISITS TB JOSHUA
The church is ground and pillar of truth. Folks attend church services for different reasons; but a unique feature among all church goers is that they go there to meet a need. Nevertheless, need vary from one individual to another, while some go to church to fellowship with God and satisfy their spiritual needs; others attend church services with the prospect of landing a husband or wife.
For some others, church is place to network and display their latest wares. Among these aforementioned, none, attend church services in disguise, which begs the question, why wife of the Ghana’s Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo has to conceal her identity each time she visits T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations.
Ghana’s Presidential Candidate’s wife, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo (popularly called Auntie Becky, has met with T.B. Joshua twice, since the final burial of Ghana’s President, the late John Evans Atta Mills in August.
A highly placed source within the church who preferred to remain anonymous, said, there are strong indications that Akufo-Addo must have sought spiritual assistance from Prophet TB Joshua to intercede for his political ambition. “Though, the Presidential Candidate himself had not met with Joshua as reported by cross section of Ghanaian media couple of weeks ago for any reason, his wife had visited the church two times.
And according to another report culled from Saharareporters says; “Nana Akufo-Addo’s campaign strategy to win the upcoming election took a “spiritual” dimension with a secret meeting between his wife, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Prophet TB Joshua, the controversial Nigerian pastor who claimed credit for the electoral triumph of President Atta Mills in 2008.
Pastor Joshua also claimed to have helped Ghana win the junior FIFA world cup last year, a credit that was quickly dismissed by the players and coach of the Ghanaian national team.
Prior to Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo’s last week meeting with the pastor, it was rumored that she had visited him a month ago in his Lagos Church. The hush-hush meeting between the two took place at al secret location on Akowonjo Road, Egbeda, on the outskirts of Lagos.
Sources told Saharareporters that the meeting was kept secret in order to avoid any kind of negative connotations that could affect his reputation for being in bed with his late friend’s opponent”.
Pleasures Magazine learnt that she had been visiting with former Minister for Information in the erstwhile Kufuor administration, Stephen Asamoah Boateng aka Asabee who is a member of the church.
