The First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo has promised to assist Prophet Isaac Owusu-Bempah in building his church.
According to him, Mrs. Akufo-Addo made the aforementioned commitment first, and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo later confirmed it in the lead-up to the 2016 general elections. He made this revelation to Okay FM.
Owusu-Bempah, who declared he was severing all links with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), emphasized that he usually relies only on God, thus he was not concerned that the commitment had not been kept.
“If people make promises to me, I don’t rely on them. Even if God through me fulfills their desires, I don’t look up to them, I look up to God because it is only His pledges that are sacrosanct.
“It is true when I used to pray for the NPP leaders, for nine months, thrice every week and Nana Akufo-Addo was part of this process, his wife was also a part.
“It was actually his wife that made that promise first, that ‘if by God’s Grace we win (the 2016 elections), we will build your church for you’ and I responded ‘Glory be to God.’
“I did not rely on it or overly expect it, and that is why I am not worried and have never complained and I never will. Moreover, I did not back them with prayers for a pledge to build my church,” he said adding; “God will in his own time build his own edifice.”
Because of his strong ties to the NPP and the Akufo-Addo administration, Owusu-Bempah was formerly known as the Nation’s Prophet. However, he has had problems with the party about maltreatment since he was detained years ago during a standoff with evangelist Nana Agradaa.
On November 1, 2023, Owusu-Bempah revealed the church building on Okay FM in Accra. This was three days before the NPP presidential flagbearership campaign, the result of which he has, remarkably, declined to predict.
