- Rev Sam Korankye says the President cried over the challenges Ghana faced
- He revealed the times were difficult but the Mahama administration had performed creditably well
- He recounted on Starr FM how Rawlings and Kufuor performed inspite of the challenges they faced
- He dismissed claims that he was an NDC member and said he only supports the party that has the welfare of the nation on its agenda
Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah, the founder and Apostle General of Royal house Chapel International, says President John Mahama in times past wept over the challenges that the erratic power supply, popularly jargonized as ‘dumsor’ posed to Ghanaians.
Reverend Korankye who was speaking to Starr FM on Wednesday described President Mahama as a leader who had the welfare of Ghanaians at heart.
According to him, the times were difficult and as a friend to the President, there were days in their private chats, President Mahama bared his heart out over the difficult challenges that has confronted the country in the last couple of years.
“Sometimes he cried when talking to me on some of the challenges, especially the dumsor situation”, said Rev Korankye.
He rated the President as having performed above average, “given the difficult nature of running a third world country with challenges, oil is not doing well globally, gold has fallen…I would not say that he has been a bad leader.
“He has done well, let’s say that John Mahama is not a bad leader in the same way that Kufuor was not a bad leader and Rawlings also not a bad leader because it is not easy running a country,” Rev. Korankye said.
He however, asked Ghanaians to be mindful on their attacks on pastors and men of God anytime they also shared their opinions on national issues.
He was of the view that such unwarranted attacks made it difficult for well-meaning people as pastors to speak on issues that affect the nation.
Rev Korankye denied being a member of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and said he only supports the political party that has the welfare and development of the nation on its agenda.
