Call for early congress or your party will divide further - Prophet to NDC
The General Overseer of the Glorious Waves Church, Prophet Badu Kobi has cautioned the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to call for an early congress since that is the only way to end the ongoing infighting in the party.
According to him, until new leaders are elected to manage the party, they will continue to blame and fight each other. This he warned may lead to further division within the largest opposition party.
Some key functionaries of the party have through the media, blamed party executives and former president Mahama for causing the defeat of the NDC.
The Central Regional Chairman, Mr. Allotey Jacobs, in a recent interview said he was having a bomb hanging on his chest and when he drops it, the party will collapse.
He also said, his warning signs were ignored and that contributed to the defeat of the NDC especially in the Central Region.
The party has since called on members to channel their grievances to the Kwesi Botchwey led committee, mandated to investigate the reasons for the humiliating defeat of the NDC in the 2016 general elections.
But Prophet Badu Kobi says the party is yet to witness worse scenarios if they do not go for an early congress.
He said, speaking as a man of God, I will only advice the leadership of the party to call for an early congress to avert any serious problem.
The confusion we see in the NDC today, could be worse and the only way they can prevent it, is to call for an early congress. He further indicated that, some senior members of the party with presidential ambition, worked against the victory of Mr. Mahama in the 2016 general elections.
Although he failed to mention names, the Prophet insisted that, the former president was ousted on purpose by some party big shots. He also blamed the former president for failing to do things that could have made him win or maintain his seat.
He said, the former president took certain things for granted hence, the defeat. Asked if Mr. Mahama could ever become the president of Ghana, he said, that will be for God to decide.
