Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced Wednesday. Alexander Hamilton will remain on the front of the $10, but leaders of the women’s suffrage movement will be on the back.

There will also be changes to the $5 bill to depict civil rights era leaders.

Lew’s decision comes after he announced last summer that he was considering replacing Hamilton on the $10 bill with a woman. The announcement drew swift rebukes from fans of Hamilton, who helped create the Treasury Department and the modern American financial system. Critics immediately suggested Hamilton take Jackson off the $20 bill given the former president’s role in moving native Americans off their land. Jackson may remain on the $20 bill in some capacity.

Lew told POLITICO last July that Treasury was exploring ways to respond to critics. “There are a number of options of how we can resolve this,” Lew said. “We’re not taking Alexander Hamilton off our currency.”

The new $10 bills are set to enter circulation in 2020, while we won’t see the $20 until 2030.

You’ll Regret For Marrying Owusu Bempah – Bishop Obinim Warns Rev. Owusu Bempah’s 3rd Wife



Bishop Obinim Warns Rev. Owusu Bempah’s 3rd Wife

About weeks ago, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah was captured in the news for contracting an unannounced marriage with Abpena Animah who happens to be the third wife of the man of God.

Truth be told, Ghanaians on social media questioned the act of the man of God and the latest to add his voice to the unfortunate issue happens to be the leader and founder of International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim.

According to the controversial man of God who loves to be called ‘Angel Obinim’ has cautioned Abena Animah to act critical else doom awaits in her marriage with Rev. Owusu Bempah.

In a viral video on the internet, Bishop Obinim is seen telling members of his congregation that he feels bad for Abena Animah, the third wife of Prophet Owusu Bempah, since she is likely to meet the same fate of his first and second wives.

“I heard in the news the other time that Rev. Owusu Bempah has married for the third time. I feel sorry for the woman because she should have thought about the previous two first. This means that if she, the third wife makes a mistake, she will also be replaced by number four”.

He added that, he’s certain the marriage will collapse in due time taking into consideration the history behind Rev. Owusu Bempah’s failed marriages. So, if this is anything to go by then it’s likely this relationship won’t last all other things being equal.

“As a third wife, you should not be happy because you are a replacement of the previous two. If the relationship had gone well, you wouldn’t be their replacement”, he confidently said.

Well, as it stands now Madam Abena Animah is happily married to Rev. Owusu Bempah. Therefore, it’s our prayers and fervent hope that they continue to swim in the pool of love devoid of divorce.
