According to Ghanaian actor Nana Kwame Yeboah, people are not required to pray in the name of Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka.
In a previous interview with SammyKay media, Ghanaian fashion icon Osebo the Zaraman questioned why people in Ghana find it difficult to pray in Nana Safo Kantanka’s name yet are able to pray via Jesus, whom they have never met.
“When they pray, they mention the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God that helped Jacob, you believe he is a righteous God so he could help you too. So I don’t see why when you pray, you can’t mention the God of
Apostle Safo. Even Diana Asamoah have been saying something like the God of Diana Asamoah. You pray through Jesus Christ but have you seen him before?” Osebo, who is a
member of Dr. Safo Kantanka’s church said.
Since then, these remarks have ignited a contentious discussion on social media, with a large number of internet users supporting or decrying it.
However, in a recent discussion on GHPage TV, Nana Yeboah dissented with Osebo’s assertions that Christians ought to pray in Apostle Kwadwo Safo’s name in the same way as they do in the names of the earlier patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, etc.). He emphasized that in order to be respected like God, the founder of Kristo Asafo must build his own universe with people living in it.
“If he wants us to worship him or use his name to pray, then he should create his world. He should have created his world with human beings in it. After all, when he made his car, he named it after himself. I pray to God, I pray
using God’s name because he is the one who created the world I live in. Kantanka even lives in a world created by someone so we can’t pray with his name. What do we even say when we pray? That he (Kantanka) should protect us? How?” Nana Yeboah said.
