General Overseer of the Royal House Chapel Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah has come under criticism for his explanation that a cheque of $1million presented to his daughter on the occasions of her wedding was not a real cheque but a “faith” cheque, which carries no monetary value but it’s a sign of faith that one day, his daughter will have $1 million.
Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah had urged Ghanaians to disregard news that his daughter had indeed received the money, insisting that the dummy cheque was of no real value.
“The cheque was a ‘faith cheque’, not a real one. These young people are saying that they believe that one day on occasion like this they can be able to present a cheque of $1 million. That is the statement that they are making,” he clarified.
But the explanation has been roundly rejected by an overwhelming number of commentators on social media, who believe the pastor is trying to avoid paying tax on the gift as the Ghana Revenue Authority had indicated in a letter to his daughter.
