-Dr. Otabil has been criticized for some comments that were attributed to him
-The man of God last week responded to critics in a sermon he preached
-In the midst of the criticism, the pastor was paid a visit by a young man to show appreciation for his support
Founder and leader of the International Central Gospel Church, Dr. Mensa Otabil who has come under a barrage of attacks and criticism for the just-ended Greater Works Summit and recent news of the collapse of Capital Bank received some appreciation for his benevolence.
According to a Facebook user, the pastor assisted them with some ‘huge’ financial assistance to fly a young man abroad to get some medical attention. He added that all went well and they went to the office of the Man of God to show appreciation.
The Facebook user indicated that the young man requested to take a picture with Dr. Mensa Otabil which he gladly obliged.
He posted the picture on Facebook with the caption, “Dr Otabil, when all hope was lost and I said I want to fly him abroad for medicals, you gave us a Huge Financial support to save his life.We came to your office after we returned to say thank you, the young man requested to take a picture with you. What a selfless leader?
Please I need at least 500 people to join me here by typing a big thank you.”
Dr. Otabil is reported to have preached in his church last Sunday and made a passing statement to suggest that some “people who looked like insult” were part of the critics that smeared him with slander when news about the collapse of Capital bank went viral.
Some members of the opposition NDC have called on the Man of God to apologize for making such reference. Social media users also shared mixed reactions to the excerpt of the sermon purported to have been preached by the leader of the church on Sunday, August 20.
