Political prostitutes stand for only their stomachs – Otabil

Motivational Speaker Pastor Mensa Otabil says Ghanaian politicians who easily shuttle between and amongst different political parties stand for nothing but their stomachs.

“I think one of the greatest tragedies of our country is that people don’t stand for anything. Well, maybe they stand for something. They stand for their stomachs. But beyond their stomachs, they don’t stand for anything; there’s no values. People will move from one extreme to the other instantly,” Pastor Otabil preached in Church on Sunday February 16, 2014.

He said: “One of the things that amazes me is politicians who are able to move from one party to another instantly. Somebody annoyed me, I change my mind. I wasn’t given a contract, I change my mind. I wasn’t given a Ministerial position, I change my mind”.

“What do you stand for? Is there something that you say, this is what I stand for and I’m not gonna change my mind even if I’m inconvenienced”.

Pastor Otabil made the admonishing when he taught his congregation about how to write a good name for one’s self in life through their legacy, accomplishments, convictions, purpose, character amongst a raft of other things.
