- According to pastor Otabil, the comments from a video excerpt being circulated were made by on Sunday, March 4, 2018
Founder and leader of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr, Mensa Otabil, has denied reports that he has made any comments concerning Rev. Owusu Bempah’s doom prophecies.
Reports circulating in the local media suggested that Dr. Otabil hit out at Owusu Bempah over death prophecies that the latter made.
This was after a video of the ICGC leader popped up, where he noted that “doom predictions” tend to destroy the already struggling self-confidence level of people, adding that Africans naturally battle with inferiority complex and fear.
But a statement, signed by the Executive Pastor of the ICGC, Rev. Albert Ocran, dispelled reports that Dr. Otabil's words were targeted at Owusu Bempah.
According to the statement, the thoughts expressed in the video clearly reflect the perspective of Dr. Mensa Otabil on the subject matter.
It, however, noted that “pitting the two together as was done in the publication creates an unfortunate impression that Pastor Otabil's comments were directly targeted at Rev. Owusu-Bempah.
“It is important to state that Pastor Otabil has made no comment in relation to the prophecies made by Rev. Owusu-Bempah.”
Owusu Bempah, who is the leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International, has come under the spotlight following certain predictions he made on December 31, 2018.
The pastor prophesied that a number of high-profile personalities may die in the year 2019.
He mentioned personalities like Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, ex-president John Mahama and the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu.
In reaction, some angry youth took the law into their own hands by storming Owusu Bempah’s church at Odorkor to vandalise properties.
However, the statement from ICGC condemned the action of youth who broke the church’s glass windows and louvres as well as billboards.
