Pastor rejects $100,000 plus 4x4 vehicle bribe from politicians

The immediate past Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey has revealed that politicians tried bribing him with $100,000 plus a 4x4 wheel drive just so he keeps quiet on national issues.

According to Prof. Martey some politicians tried all they can to “muzzle” him. “… they come with bribes, fat envelopes, $100, 000… I want everybody to listen that politicians came to my house with $100, 000 and also with the promises that if you keep quiet we will give you a house at Trasaaco with swimming pool.”

The vociferous preacher said he cannot be bought or influenced.
