Akufo-Addo has become ‘stubborn’ like the Biblical Saul — Rev. Owusu Bempah

Founder and General Overseer of Glorious Word and Power Ministry, Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah has said that Ghana is currently facing economic problems because President Akufo-Addo has refused to listen to the voice of God.

Rev. Owusu Bempah told RTV Ghana, that just like Samuel (a prophet) distanced himself from Saul because of his stubbornness, he has also distanced himself from the president.

Owusu Bempah was nicknamed ‘The Nation’s Prophet’ at the time because he was very close with the president. The preacher backed the president’s campaign, alleging that God has revealed to him that Nana Akufo-Addo was the best person to lead the country.

However, explaining what appears to be a strained relationship with the president, he said when Samuel was directed by God to anoint Saul to be king, he did exactly that, but when Saul turned away from God, Samuel left him.

“God asked Samuel to stay off because Saul had showed disobedience and so I see that the pure heart Akufo-Addo for which God chose him, has changed,” he said in Twi.

When asked if his claim that Akufo-Addo was the best man lead to the country was a mistake, he answered that he did as God commanded him to do.

“The prayers from pastors and other men of God for the president have also ceased because be does not encourage that. He is doing what he pleases. He is just like Saul. You can’t blame Samuel,” he stressed.

He said if Ghana’s economy has become so bad that the president would request an IMF bailout it shows God is not happy with Akufo-Addo anymore.

Rev Owusu Bempah said the people the president has surrounded himself with are part of the reasons his relationship with God has strained.
