Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah has been captured in a secret audio recording making frantic efforts to reach John Mahama to tell the former president that a possible victory awaits him if he contests in the 2020 elections.
The pastor and founder of Glorious Word Power Ministry who has been parading himself as an ardent follower of the Nana Addo administration was heard in the leaked audio making a rather unpatriotic comment about the ruling NPP.
â€œI need to see you, so please make it a point to meet me tomorrow â€¦ I think the NPP people are jokingâ€¦ If they donâ€™t take care, the NDC can come to power â€¦ So call him (John Mahama) to tell him that I called you…,â€ the NPP scribe is heard saying in a telephone conversation with Appiah Stadium who reacted in the affirmative.
Interestingly, the popular pastor has incessantly castigated Mr Mahama vowing on many platforms that he can never be president of Ghana again.
But reacting to the emergence of the tape, Owusu Bempah who admitted to speaking to Appiah Stadium on phone stated that the recording making rounds was not painting the exact picture of their conversation.
According to him, though he spoke on a number of issues with Appiah Stadium, he did not exactly say Mahama was going to come back to power but it was rather Appiah Stadium who suggested that he will tell the former president that he (Owusu Bempah) had predicted victory for him (Mahama).
Owusu Bempah explained that he did not object to Appiah Stadium’s suggestion because it was something Appiah had been saying for a long and he thus saw it as no big deal.
Speaking on Peace FM, Owusu Bempah suspected that the tape was the handiwork of his detractors who have cut and pieced together parts of his speech to discredit him.
He insisted that his earlier prediction that Mahama will not become president of Ghana again still holds and that he was not saying that out of hate for the former president.
