Pastor Otabil[/caption] General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church, Pastor Mensa Otabil, says though it has been 62 years since Ghana gained independence from British rule, the country is now suffering from inferiority complex. On the occasion of Ghana’s 62 independence celebration Wednesday, the popular Ghanaian preacher observed the people have been limited by what he termed mental prison bars. “62 years ago, our fore-fathers fought against British colonialism and won. Today, our battle is against inferiority complex and the mental prison bars that have limited us,” he tweeted. He underscored the need for people to free themselves of “beggarly mindset”, noting they have powerful thoughts which can “determine their destiny” either good or bad, adding “…a man is the sum total of his thoughts”.

Sixty-two year’s post-independence, Ghana is doing really well for herself. Prosperity hasn’t come without challenges, and there’s always room for a better tomorrow, but I’m so honored of call myself Ghanaian and embrace it with pride and zeal. ??????#Ghana62YearsOn #GhanaAt62— ?? kwame jer ??

For some, it was a day to celebrate the special food of Ghana.
Happy #GhanaAt62. Let us remember the good fight, sacrifices and the lives others put at risk to give us our independence and identity as a country. Let it give us the inspiration and courage to fight for the values Ghana is supposed to stand for #1759Celebrates1957 ? pic.twitter.com/7tUdSpLTqy— Lexis (@niilexis) March 6, 2019
