A group calling itself “Concerned Members” of the Musama Disco Christo Church (MDCC), has called on the two factions in disagreement over the leadership of the church to cease all hostilities, threats and intimidations.

According to the group, made up of the clergy, leading members of both home and foreign missions, the dispute is driving away active and prospective members of the church especially the youth.

Reverend Francis Owusu, the Public Relations Officer of the Concerned Members addressing a news conference in Cape Coast  urged both factions to settle their differences through dialogue.

He said the call was part of the plans to reunite the church after series of leadership- related agitations.

Rev Owusu said the more than 13 years of litigation in court, resulted in the removal of Prophet Miritaiah Jonah Jehu- Appiah, the Akoboha III, Leader of the church by the Supreme Court, this year.

In resolving the issue, the statement proposed the constitution of a 15- member group of equal representation with a neutral person as a moderator which would oversee the formation of a 21-member Interim National Executive Committee (INEC) also of equal representation. 

The task of the INEC would be to develop road map towards the enthronement of the next Akaboha and Akatitibi (Queen), of the church after their report has been approval by the Synod. 

The MDCC, translated as “The Army of the Cross of Christ Church”, was founded in 1922 by the late Prophet Jemisimiham Jehu-Appiah, who took the title Akaboha I, and upon his death in 1948, was succeeded by his son Prophet Matapoly Moses Jehu-Appiah as Akaboha II.

This was in accordance with the church’s constitution which mandated the Akaboha’s son to hold the line of succession and as such, Prophet Miritaiah Jonah Jehu- Appiah was enthroned as Akaboha III in 1972.
