*In 1986, due to some misunderstanding, the Ghana Baptist Convention was split into 2: The Ghana Baptist Convention and the Ghana Baptist Convention Cooperating with the Southern Baptist Convention. This explains why Deacon Joseph Quansah and Rev. Kojo Osei-Wusuh were Presidents at the same period (and same overlaps in the list of General Secretaries).
