Are My Beliefs, Religion And My Church Safe Under NDC Or NPP?


The Church and or Mosque serve as the conscience and upholders of the moral code of every nation. They serve to remind us of the existence of a higher and superior being, namely God.

Religion brings to bear, our human weakness and how we may turn them into our strengths. Any nation or government that seeks to insult and persecute religion and the church is fighting God. Any nation that fights God is doomed and heading for imminent failure.

Ghana is blessed and a Godly Nation and the persecution of the Church by President Mahama and the NDC is an attempt to change the destiny of Ghana for the worse.

Ladies and gentlemen of the media, we want to draw the attention of all well meaning Ghanaians to the use of occultism and evil and satanic forces by the NDC as a party during previous and this current elections and their constant persecution of the church in their attempt to silence everyone.

In 2008, the NDC Ashanti regional chairman and now Ghana’s ambassador to the United States of America Mr. Daniel Ohene Agyekum is on record to have used eggs and schnapps to invoke Antoa Nyamaa to ensure the NDC wins the elections or the election should turn violent should the NDC lose.

As we speak, the current Ashanti regional NDC chairman, Mr. Yaw Owusu Obimpeh, also invoked Antoa Nyamaa and a number of other deities to strike the leadership of the NPP including our flag bearer dead. This is from a political party that postures as being full of only pious Christians and muslims.

Ladies and gentlemen of the media, the NDC as a party has been hypocritical and pretended to be very Christian whilst engaging the services of various occult groups. The leadership of NDC over the years is known to have consulted several shrines and deities and without mentioning names, most Ghanaians are aware of who these people are.

Fellow Ghanaians, the most worrying aspect of all this is not the fact that the NDC as a party believes and dabbles in occultism, but the current anti-Christian stance of the party and the attempt to silence the voice of Christians in Ghana and persecute them is worrying to say the least.

In the past four years and especially after the untimely or somewhat unnatural death of President Mills, there have been incessant attacks on Christendom. Most Ghanaians are still wondering why President Mahama will order the digging of nine graves just to bury the former President Mills.

Virtually every Christian denomination from the Presbyterian, Catholic, Pentecostal, Methodist denominations and leaders of various Islamic sects have been maligned, insulted and abused in one form or another by the current NDC leadership, government communicators and grass root cadres of the NDC.

A list of few of the insults may jog our memories and elucidate the point. Dr Tony Aidoo, the Director of Policy and Evaluation at the Presidency with no restraint referred to prayerful Christians who speak in tongues as crazy people who are devil worshippers.

Mr Fiifi Kwetey, the Deputy Minister of Finance told Ghanaians no Muslim can ever become President of Ghana and his point was re-echoed by Mr Sam Pee Yalley, a cadre and leading member of the NDC that former President Mills would not live in the Jubilee house because it is situated in Nima, a zongo area occupied by Muslims.

Mr Johnson Aseidu Nketia, the General Secretary of the NDC is on record to have made a statement to the effect that the Church should keep its Bible and the NDC would keep their constitution. Intimating that the Church has no right to comment on the matter of the creation of the 45 additional constituencies. The ensuing insults he and NDC communicators rained on the Presbyterian Church thereafter is on record for reference.

Other leaders of the NDC government under President Mahama who have insulted the church include Mr Kobby Acheampong Deputy Minister of Interior, Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe, Central Regional Minster, Mr Allotey Jacobs the Central Regional Communications Director for the NDC and Board Member of the Electricity Company of Ghana. Not to mention communicators such as Peter Otokunor, Felix Kwakye Fosu and the CEO of the Ghana Free Zones Board Kojo Twum Boafo who purportedly resigned from the Church simply because the church dared challenge the position of the government on the creation of the 45 constituencies.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the media, church leaders such as Archbishop Palmer Buckle of the Catholic Church, Dr. Dag Heward-Mills of Lighthouse Chapel and most recently and viciously Dr Mensah Otabil have had vituperation poured on them.

The venom poured out on Pastor Otabil is beyond comprehension. Recounting the most vivid of them, ladies and gentlemen permit me to quote a few views expressed by the leadership of the NDC.

Dr Tony Aiddo on Otabil “The press conference today shows an extreme case of behavioral inconsistency to be exhibited by a man who presents himself or rather misrepresents himself as a man of God, as somebody who has the knowledge and the vision and has been preaching over the years and more or less become an opinion leader for a large section of the population.” He continues; “Nobody asked him to come and present himself and his image to Ghanaians as a man of wisdom. If you have done that, you will have no private ownership of the things you have said,’’ and he added “Is he not using the words of Jesus Christ to make money, to build congregations, is he not?”

Mr Kakra Essamuah, a member of the communications team of this NDC government said “Has Pastor Otabil reached a state where what God ask him to tell us he owns it? He tells us that he owns his words and is the only person who can interpret his words [then] what is the difference between him and Nebuchadnezzar? Referring to the ancient tyrannical King of Babylon.

Ladies and gentlemen, in the heat of all the insults, Pastor Mensah Otabil tried seeking refuge in the President by calling on him to come to his aid by calling his henchmen and surrogates to order. The response from the President was to the effect that he was not aware of what was going on and that he and his party had absolutely nothing to do with it. Not even a word of caution to his communicators and staff as quoted above.

Fellow Ghanaians, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is not a saint and has never claimed to be one. He is human and accepts the failings that come with our human nature, the difference between him and others obviously is that he does not pretend to be holier than thou whilst persecuting the church. Christianity and Islam are safe under the leadership of Nana Akufo Addo.

Nana has been a promoter of democracy and free speech and has sacrificed a greater part of his personal life to ensure same. Under no circumstance will the Church and Islam be denigrated, maligned, persecuted and confined to the four corners of the building under God-willing an Akufo-Addo Presidency

We therefore call on all well meaning Ghanaians, be you Christian or Muslim, or whatever your affirmation or faith may be, whose churches, mosques, Imams, pastors and religious leaders have been insulted denigrated, abused and maligned to think of the safety and sanctity of their religion. Please ask your selves are my beliefs, my religion and my church safe under the NDC or the NPP?

We encourage all the religious to go out and vote peacefully and massively for the New Patriotic Party on 7th December to ensure that the Bible and Quran are protected and all religions respected and to ensure that all of us may worship and express our religious faith freely without any government interference.

God Bless our Homeland Ghana
