A section of Ghanaians on social media have attacked the founder and leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International (GWPMI), Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah over recent comments he made about former President John Mahama.
Rev. Owusu Bempah is known to have advised former President Mahama not to contest for president again because God had told him (Owusu Bempah) that Mahama can never be president again.
Despite this stark warning from Owusu Bempah, Mahama has gone ahead to declare his intentions to contest.
“I want to congratulate the rank & file and executives of our party, the NDC, at all levels for the commitment and work rate we have put into our reorganization efforts.
“To you, the teeming supporters and sympathizers calling and requesting me to declare my intentions for the future, I wish to assure you today, that as a servant-leader, I have listened to your calls and reflected. I will not disappoint you even as we await the publication of the party’s guidelines for selecting a new leader,” John Mahama wrote on Facebook.
In the aftermath of Mahama's declaration, Rev. Owusu Bempah is reported to have stated that though he was not surprised about Mahama’s intention, it will be a total waste of time for the former President to contest in 2020 because he will be embarrassed.
"I have always said it and will say again that Mahama will only disgrace himself in 2020 because he won’t win the election.
“He should go and rest, he can declare his intentions 100 times, I don’t mind and not shocked but then truth is that he won’t succeed,” Owusu Bempah stressed.
But Owusu Bempah has come under fire for his utterances over Mahama's decision.
According to some social media users who participated in YEN.com.gh survey, Rev. Owusu Bempah's words are not from God and he must therefore keep mute.
Theresa believes Owusu Bempah is only being a politician.
Abdul thinks Shatta Wale should visit Owusu Bmepah if he starts burning fake churches as he warned sometime ago.
Nicholas brings some humour to the discussion.
Ayesu is wondering why Owusu Bempah is not preaching about salvation
Kwakye thinks Owusu Bempah is a charlatan.
Owusu Bempah, one of the most popular prophets in Ghana currently, is known for the many prophecies he delivers at the end of every year.
Credited to have correctly predicted President Nana Akufo-Addo's win in the 2016 elections, he is known to be close to the ruling NPP.
Though he claims to have predicted a win for the NDC in 2008, many members of the opposition party do not like him as his more recent prophecies have not been favourable to the party.
