President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia have come under fire from Rev. Isaac Owusu-Bempah of the Glorious Word Power Ministry International, or GWPMI.
His problem with the two personas started when he (Owusu-Bempah) got into a public argument with Nana Agradaa, a fetish priestess turned preacher, and was arrested and detained as a result.
Owusu-Bempah decried how Akufo-Addo and Bawumia played different parts in his plight, from his arrest through to his detention and processing for court, in a sermon he gave a few days ago.
In front of a large crowd, he declared that, in principle, he had no issues with any political party, whether it be the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) or the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He emphasized that he had difficulties with the President, his vice president, and several NPP members. “As for me, I’m hurt by Akufo-Addo; the order from up high shocked me and forced me to be tied to a bed.
He recounted his sequence of events in making his point: “… people came to my premises and fired shots, my pastors were arrested and I was following up, why was I arrested. I hadn’t physically assaulted anyone, why was I arrested. I got shock.”
He continued that whiles in cells he developed symptoms of illness: “I was sent to Police hospital and while a drip was one me in a bed, I was handcuffed to the bed in the name of order from above. Akufo-Addo and Bawumia were in the know and Dampare was doing such things,” he alleged.
Owusu-Bempah also claimed that despite the hard feelings he habours against both men, they called to felicitate with him on his birthday.
“Afterwards, you call wishing me a happy birthday. You know what…. All your promises you failed to fulfil, yet you allow for me to be arrested despite being the one at the receiving end of abuse and hurled before court.
“One day, I will speak out. How I suffered because of Nana Akufo-Addo, I put my life in my hand, whenever I am going about, people follow me with guns and cars. You became president and after getting what you want, thrashed me. I should be disgraced?” he quizzed.
This is the second time in months that Owusu-Bempah, known at the Nation’s Prophet because of his closeness to Akufo-Addo is taking a swipe at the President. He recently likened the president to Saul whose heart ha become hardened and not accepting the word of God.
