Charles Owusu blames IGP Akuffo Dampare over economic hardship

Charles Owusu, an aide to former Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission has laid blame on Inspector General of Police(IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare for the current hardship in Ghana.

He explained that the hardship in Ghana is related to the hand of God being lifted away from Ghana adding that the crisis is a result of the decision by the IGP to clamp down on prophets and prophesies.

It would be recalled that the Ghana Police Service in October last year sent stern warning to men of God who publicly spell doom on people, especially celebrities in Ghana.

The warning follows the arrest of Prophet Steven Akwasi Appiah, popularly known as Jesus Ahuofe, the founder and leader of New Life Kingdom Chapel International, who gave death prophecy about controversial dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly called Shatta Wale.

The pastor on September 28, 2021, openly said in a supposed prophecy on the radio that Shatta Wale was going to be gunned down on Monday, October 18, a day after the musician’s birthday.

Reacting to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s statement that he has an abiding faith in God to turn the fortunes of Ghana around, Charles Owusu said “It is not as if President Akufo-Addo has not worked, he has worked a lot and it is evident across entire Ghana…. When Nana Addo Dankwa. Akufo-Addo became a president, in his journey, a certain man who says he is also a Christian got an appointment in this country and what he did was to use fiat. He asked prophets not to prophesy in this country.

“He asked that when one receives a prophecy, they bring it for him to sieve it. He is suppressing the voice of God in this nation by sieving prophesies to determine what can be said in public and what cannot be said. We didn’t see that even in the days of Nebuchadnezzar.”

Speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM, he said the action by the IGP was an attempt to fight God which attracted consequences for the country.

“I am telling you that there were pastors in this country who were praying for the president that nobody knew. Now everybody stopped. I am telling you; I am a pastor,” Charles stated.

He added: “And he (IGP) thinks that it was normal. In a country that we have 72% of Christians in it, a certain man sat somewhere and began to threaten pastors, threaten men of God that they can’t prophesy.”
