- The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has denied claims of pastor Mensa Otabil being a member of the party
- Mensa Otabil has accused of using his pulpit to preach against the party
The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has insisted that the head pastor of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr Mensa Otabil is not a member of the party.
The Greater Accra Regional Secretary of the NPP, Agyei Sowah has revealed that ever-since taking over office as Secretary in the NPP, he has not found Mensa Otabil in their official books.
“To be frank, I have never come across his name in our records. I have every record of our card bearing members. It cannot be said that Pastor Otabil is our member. It is erroneous and unfortunate,” he stated.
The comments by the NPP regional secretary follows recent claims by the incumbent NDC that the said pastor, Mensa Otabil was an avid member of the party - revelations made after the pastor's comment that Ghanaians would have to take back their country from their leaders.
