According to Owusu Bempah, there was no hardship in Ghana and that Akufo-Addo has rather improved the living conditions of Ghanaians.
There have been massive criticisms of Akufo-Addo's government since the last increment in petroleum prices and the recent increase in the communication service tax.
Many are those who have complained that there is too much hardship in the country with some attributing the said hardship to a horn Owusu Bempah gave to Akufo-Addo upon his assumption of office.
But speaking in an interview on Okay FM's morning show, Owusu Bempah emphatically denied the claim that his horn had brought hardships.
For him, “there is more improvement in the standards of living and I know perfectly well that since President Akufo-Addo took over the administration, his achievements far outweigh the NDC’s eight years in government”.
Going further, Owusu Bempah who suspected the NDC to be linking his horn to hardships explained that it was a biblical symbol of leadership and anointing.
Describing those behind the claim as “unlettered and ignorant about the Bible”, Owusu Be,pah Samuel’s anointing of David as King of Israel as an example.
“I heard that some NDC members claiming that the horn of strength I gave to our President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has brought hardship in the country. Some are even saying that there is an evil force in the horn fighting against Ghana and the government of Akufo-Addo,” he said.
“When I hear issues like this from the NDC, I realize that they are really ignorant about scripture. In the Bible, Samuel used a horn with oil in it to anoint David as a King, and so a horn is not an evil thing because most of the old prophets in the Bible used horns,” he explained.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported how Akufo-Addo trended on social media following a video of him at the Russia-Africa Summit which got many people to accuse him of sleeping.
