An aide to the late NPP politician Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie aka Sir John, Charles Owusu, claims that the reason Ghanaians are suffering economic hardships is due to the Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare, and his prosecution of men of God.
Charles Owusu, a former head of the Monitoring Unit at the Forestry Commission, made these sensational claims during an appearance on the Asempa Fm political talk show Ekosii Sen.
He claimed that the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has done all the work he can in this country yet it is not reflected in the lives of Ghanaians due to the actions of a rogue IGP.
Charles Owusu said that the recent gagging of prophets by the IGP – who has arrested and threatened so-called prophets of doom – has led to God becoming angry with Ghana.
“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,” Owusu said.
Speaking further, he revealed that there were many prophets who were praying for the government since they came into power but many of them have stopped due to the pressure.
“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,” the associate of late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie (Sir John) said.
“And he (IGP) thinks that it was normal. 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,”
Owusu was reacting to the President’s recent comment that he’s looking up to God to save the country.
“I am so glad to hear that word from President Akufo-Addo,” he continued.
“The NPP, before coming to power in 2016, was holding prayer meetings at their office thrice every week asking for God’s intervention. Let me tell you, it was not a campaign message that brought Akufo-Addo to power, it was God,” Owusu concluded.
