Winners Chapel, one of the most populated charismatic churches in Ghana is facing serious leadership struggle that threatens to split the church.

The church which has its headquarters in Nigeria is almost divided with the majority Ghanaian members in the church threatening to break away should the authorities in Nigeria proceed with their decision to remove Bishop George Adjeiman as the head of Winners Chapel in Ghana.

Information pieced together by Peace FM which also tallies with rumours amongst some church members indicate that Winners Chapel in Ghana headed by Bishop Adjeiman appears to disregard orders from Nigeria regarding the use of church funds.

According to our information which has also been confirmed by some members Winners Chapel in Ghana, the authorities in Nigeria have insisted that monies belonging to Winners Chapel, Ghana should be sent to Nigeria who will then decide what the money should be used for.

This according to our information is not being complied with by Bishop Adjeiman who instead is using the money to develop the Ghana Branch of Winners chapel and those at the church headquarters in Nigeria appear to be unhappy about. Just last Tuesday, seven people alleged to be pastors from Winners Chapel, Nigeria came to Ghana to impress on Bishop Adjeiman to resign.

This has however incurred the displeasure of the members especially the Ghanaians who have been impressed by the tremendous growth of Winners Chapel under Bishop Adjeiman and are determined to resist orders from the Church headquarters in Nigeria. Some have also threatened to break away should Bishop Adjeiman be removed as head of Winners Chapel, Ghana

When Peace FM visited the church premises at circle during their church service last night though service had closed some members were seen in groups discussing the issue with one simple message, “we will not allow this to happen again. There was also police presence at the church premises confirming the unease tension facing Winners Chapel. When Peace FM tried to contact Bishop Adjeiman to gain some insight into the crisis, his security men simply said “Bishop No Dey Entertain Visitors Today.”
