- Nicholas Duncan Williams has given a chilly account of why his first Marriage to Mama Francisca broke down
- The revered man of God noted that his first marriage failed because he married as a ‘boy’ who was afraid of the temptation of falling into sin
Founder and general overseer of the Action Chapel International, Bishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has opened up on why his first marriage broke up.
Delivering a sermon at a youth event, the preacher touched on circumstances that led to him divorcing his first wife.
The Bishop was married to Mama Francisca, but their 26-year union eventually ended on the rocks following a divorce in 2007.
Until now, the public has been wondering what actually led to the divorce of the couple, especially after staying together for such a long time.
In 2006, the preacher implicitly explained that “the challenges in my marriage are personal and shall remain private for the sake of our children and loved ones,” noting however that “the decision on my part was not taken in a haste without years of prayer, best efforts and Christian counselling”.
But speaking for the first time on the matter, Duncan Williams attributed the divorce of his first wife to “irreconcilable differences”.
He explained that he married at a very young age, which meant that he was virtually a “boy” and not matured enough.
According to him, he entered into marriage at the age of 24 on the back of a thinking that he would not fall into sin.
He advised the youth to mature before considering marriage, adding that they should not allowed themselves to be forced into it.
“A matured man is a man who truly qualifies to be called a married man, a married man is a mature man and a mature man is one who is well developed mentally, economically, spiritually, physically, psychologically and emotionally strong,” Bishop Duncan-Williams said.
The preacher was speaking at this year’s International Youth Empowerment Summit held in Accra.
The man of God is currently married to Rosa Whitaker, the CEO and President of the Whitaker Group in Washington DC.
