The founder and leader of the International God’s Way Church Bishop Daniel Obinim has denied predicting a one touch victory for the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party in the upcoming elections.
According to him, “I was telling the congregation of a revelation that I had a year ago pointing to the fact that the NPP is gaining root in Ghana now because in the spiritual realm they are more in numbers than NDC. So I showed them a classical example right in the Church by calling out all NDC members to stand on their feet. When I counted them, they were 44 out of the over 5000 members of my church. And I asked NPP members to also stand, and it confirmed it all.”
However, speaking on Accra-based Kasapa FM, Bishop Obinim said he was misquoted and said he rather asked his congregation to pray for a peaceful election.
The controversial church leader in a video prophesied victory for Nana Addo while speaking to his congregation.
He said in the spiritual realm; “the New Patriotic Party is 100% whiles the National Democratic Congress is 60%. So, if we are going to vote freely and fairly and the EC will be truthful who do you think will win,” the man of God asked rhetorically.
But Obinim dismissed reports in the media suggesting that he predicted victory for the NPP flagbearer.
“That was what God revealed to me a year ago and periodically I’ve been reviewing it and still the NPP out numbers the NDC and so what I said was that all things being equal, if the situation remains unchanged and it is reflecting more in the physical as we approach this elections, then, NPP is more likely to win the elections. However, in my speech I strategically used the word “but” to indicate that things can also change.”
“I was quick to add that, the human mind can change at any given time. I said this on Wednesday but if things will change for the tables to turn for NDC then God will have to reveal that one too to me. It is also important to acknowledge that the EC could also rig elections to favour the NDC, or better still something could even happen to the candidates to change the outcome of the elections. So in essence that is what happened. I want to state emphatically that I have not said point blank that the NPP is winning the elections,” he added.
