The Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has advised President Akufo-Addo to disassociate himself from Reverent Isaac Owusu Bempah.
He said that it would be inappropriate for President Akufo-Addo to continue giving credence and patronizing the service of Rev. Owusu Bempah following controversies over his continuous doom prophecies about leaders of the country.
According to him, although Akufo-Addo had the right to independently choose who he associates with publicly, the situation at hand poses a test to his morals as a public officer.

The founder and leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International, Rev Owusu Bempah was recently in the news for predicting the death of some politicians, religious leaders and high-profile personalities including the Chief Imam, Sheikh Nuhu Sharabutu in 2019.
Ablakwa on the basis of the ensuing controversy on the matter noted that former US President, Barrack Obama took a bold decision to dissociate himself from his pastor whose sermons were found to be divisive.
“It is imperative that our leaders show good example. President Obama confronted by similar circumstances, distanced himself from his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright for the latter’s offensive and divisive sermons. Indeed, President Obama publicly condemned Rev. Wright and subsequently resigned his membership from Rev. Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ.” Okudzeto Ablakwa noted
