Tilewa Johnson.The statement read: “Following the demise of the 9th primate of the Church of the Province of West Africa (CPWA), the late Most Rev. Dr. S. Tilewa Johnson and by the provisions of our Constitution, the Most Rev. Dr. Daniel Yinkah Sarfo, the archbishop of the internal province of Ghana, automatically becomes the 10th primate and metropolitan archbishop of the CPWA.”Johnson, 59, was primate, metropolitan archbishop of the internal province of West Africa and bishop of Gambia. A popular figure both home and abroad, he died in Fajara on Jan. 21 while playing tennis – one of his favorite pastimes.His unexpected death prompted tributes from around the world and from across Christian denominations and other religions. His funeral, which took place last Friday at the Independence Stadium in Bakau, Gambia, was attended by, among others, a high-level government delegation, and senior members of the Anglican Communion – including its Secretary General Canon Kenneth Kearon.
