Akufo-Addo might end up like Mahama over 'grabbing' appointees – Owusu Bempah
Founder and Leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministry, Rev. Dr. Isaac Owusu Bempah says that he is dumbfounded to the core at the attitude of some big-wigs within the governing New Patriotic Party, saying that their activities are staining Nana Addo’s administration.
In an interview with Accra based Okay FM, he said that Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo Addo, is a genuine man chosen by God to lead this country, but some people within his administration are not performing their duties diligently which is bringing shame and disrepute to his governance.
He has consequently charged the President to boot out all incompetent people within his administration else they will bring shame to his administration. He said that the Flag Staff House should be the starting point if Nana Addo wants to do a reshuffling.
“There are some people who have gathered around Nana Addo, they’ve formed gangs…If he notices that anyone isn’t going about his duties as expected, he should not hesitate to expel the person from his administration…”
“This was the same thing some people did when Mahama and the NDC were in power that brought about their defeat.
“I don’t know what has entered into some people within the NPP, they are chasing after money…there are things going on within the NPP which will not help them…2020 is not far away,” he fired.
His comments are also against the backdrop of dissatisfaction and grief that have been expressed by some grass root members of the NPP who toiled during the campaign process but have now been abandoned by some leaders of the party upon capturing political power.
He, however, said that he doesn’t mind when these party folks abandon him, but he feels the sentiments and the pain these grass root members are currently going through.
To this, he said: “…No one should think that I need any money from any NPP man, or I need money from the NPP…I don’t need a dime from them…I speak the mind of God; whatever God tells me is what I say I’m neither for the NPP or the NDC”
“I can say on authority that since the NPP came into power, they have not given me anything… I get my own money and cars through the diligence in God’s work I do…since the NPP came to power, I have never asked for anything from” he said.
“…Only a few people within the NPP have remembrance that it was a concerted effort by a number of people that aided the NPP to come into power. Rev Bempah expressed.
