A member of the communication team of the National Democratic Congress Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey has challenged Pastor Mensah Otabil to come clear on his statement that his voice was doctored.
The Ketu South NDC parliamentary candidate said the fact that the words in the recordings were not from a single sermon does not lighten the weight of the content.
Fiifi Kwetey was speaking to TV 3’s Bright Nana Amfoh on News @ 10 Monday, November 12, 2012.
He said there was nothing evil done in piecing together different sermons of the General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church, saying the most important issue is the content of the recording.
“Nothing evil was done,” said Fiifi Kwetey.
“The issue of quality [of education] must be priority.”
The Deputy Minister of Finance said Pastor Otabil’s comments expressed at a media conference on Monday, November 12, 2012 clearly supported the stance taken by NDC some months ago.
“It is the pride of every parent to pay his child’s school fees. That is the same point NDC made when it called a press conference when the issue of free education came up.”
Fiifi Kwetey further chided Pastor Otabil’s assertion that he is the only person responsible for interpreting every statement he makes.
“It is unbelievable. How does a man of God say something like this…that your sermons are subject to your private interpretation?” he questions.
“The Bible says the flower shall fade, the ground shall fall but the word of God shall remain forever.”
