Former Municipal Chief Executive for Obuasi Kwasi Ofori Agyeman has taken the Christian Council of Ghana and the clergymen who recently called on former President John Mahama to the cleaners, describing them as ‘bunch of hypocrites’.
The former government appointee’s attack on the clergymen comes after a closed-door meeting with Mr Mahama on Monday to discuss issues of national interest.
Zuba, as he is popularly called, explained he is confused why anytime there’s a claim against the NDC, nothing comes out from the Council but when it is the other way round, then the Christian Council raises the Bible and start preaching peace.
The high delegation of clergymen was led by the Most Reverend Paul K. Boafo, Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church, and included representatives from the Christian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, and the Catholic Bishops Conference.
Speaking on Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma Wednesday, February 16, Mr Ofori Agyeman, who sounded angry, took a swipe at the clergymen for not calling the government to order on several issues.
“We were all in this country when key members of the NPP rained insults on Mr Mahama to the extent that some even threatened to burn his house. We didn’t hear a word from the so-called clergymen or Christian Council, so now what has changed? Wat has pricked them to visit the former president? They are bunch of hypocrites. Let’s call a spade a spade.”
