Many people expressed mixed feelings about the practice, after which the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) issued a letter to the newlywed, demanding tax on the gift.
But Apostle Korankye Ankrah insisted that; “they presented the dummy cheque of $1 million but people did not get the idea behind the presentation.”
According to him, the rationale behind the gesture was misconstrued because the public “thought it was real money.”
“Quickly they turned the headlines, ‘Sam Ankrah gifts to his daughter who got wedded $1million’ and the thing went viral.”
Speaking to his congregants, the Apostle General further said; “I thank God that they are prophesying that one day, I’ll be able to gift my daughter one million dollars. The cheque is a faith cheque. I am being very careful at the moment how to choose my words because I do not want to present them in a manner that looks like they are joking. Because what you think is fun today, will become a reality tomorrow.”
Rev. Korankye-Ankrah subsequently urged the public to disregard any claims that his daughter has received $1 million as a gift from her friends during her wedding.
