President John Mahama will emerge victorious in the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections because God has ordained him for a second term in office, Deputy Communications Director of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kweku Boahen, has said.
According to him, the supposed prophecies of Rev Owusu Bempah, Founder and Leader of Glorious Word Ministry International that Mr Mahama will lose the election will not materialise.
Rev Owusu Bempah, on Thursday September 22, told the host of Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM, Chief Jerry Forson, that: “When I hear the NDC say they will win the election, I laugh. I prophesied their victory in previous elections but this time the Lord has said victory belongs to Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP. If the NPP also comes to power and mismanages the economy, I will criticise them. If the PPP or the CPP comes to power and do same, I will criticise them. Ghanaians are suffering…”
But reacting to this prophecy on Accra News on the same day, Mr Boahen said the NDC respects men of God, therefore, will not want to make any disparaging remarks against Rev Bempah, but added: “God has already ordained Mr Mahama for a second term.”
According to him, Mr Mahama has for the past four years demonstrated his capabilities of developing the country through the pragmatic policies and pro-poor programmes he has instituted. Therefore, God- willing, his tenure will be renewed by Ghanaians.
