Bishop Isaac Owusu-Bempah, the founder and head of Glorious Word Power Ministries International, has denied rumors that he foretold Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s anointing in order to support the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in holding onto power.
Owusu-Bempah claims that certain people supporting the vice president are going about saying that he has given a prophesy that shows Dr. Bawumia is the NPP’s legitimate pick to be the flagbearer.
“Some are going about saying that I, Rev Owusu-Bempah says that God has chosen Dr Bawumia to come and lead the NPP, and that he is the rightful candidate to help the NPP break the 8.
“They claim I, Owusu-Bempah gave that prophecy. I plead with everyone watching me, I know the media is recording this and the whole Ghana is watching me. I have not made such statement anywhere. I’ve not said it in my church or anywhere.
“So if you watch YouTube and see some people having such discussions that I made such prophecy to President Akufo-Addo that they should bring Dr Bawumia to lead the NPP and help break the 8, it is not true,” Reverend Bempah told his congregation in a video.
A national delegates conference will be held by the NPP on Saturday, November 4, 2023, with the aim of selecting a flagbearer for the 2024 presidential election.
On November 4, the party will choose a flagbearer from among Francis Addai-Nimoh, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, and Vice President Dr. Bawumia.
