Former Obuasi Municipal Chief Executive Kwasi Ofori Agyeman has called out the Christian Council of Ghana and the clergymen who recently called on former President John Mahama as a “bunch of hypocrites.”
Following a closed-door meeting with Mr Mahama on Monday to address issues of national concern, the former government appointee launched an attack on the priests.
Zuba, as he is known, indicated that he is perplexed as to why, if the NDC is accused of something, nothing emerges from the Christian Council, but when it is the other way around, the Christian Council raises the Bible and begins preaching peace.
The Methodist Church’s Presiding Bishop, the Most Reverend Paul K. Boafo, headed a high-level clergy delegation that comprised members of the Christian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, and the Catholic Bishops Conference.
Mr Ofori Agyeman, while on Akoma FM’s current affairs and politics show GhanAkoma on Wednesday, February 16, slammed the clerics for failing to call the government to order on various problems.
“We were present in this country when prominent members of the NPP hurled insults at Mr Mahama, even threatening to burn his house down. What has changed now that we haven’t heard from the so-called clerics or the Christian Council? What compelled them to pay a visit to the previous president? They’re a bunch of hypocrites. Let’s just call a spade a spade.”
