Bishop Elisha Salifu Amoako has charged Prophet Dr. Isaac Kofi Oduro to render an unqualified apology to President Akufo-Addo for using unprintable words and curses on him.
Prophet Oduro of Alabaster International Ministries fame in reaction to the president’s 23rd Address to the Nation on the fight against COVID-19 at the back of the rising cases of infections and deaths in the country lambasted the president and political leaders whiles blaming them for the rise in infections.
While preaching in his church he said “never tell me that these spikes just jumped up. I am telling you that this is as a result of your political dancing and vuvuzela blowing. Don’t be a hypocrite.”
Reacting to this, Bishop Salifu Amoako of Alive Chapel International fame in a media interaction apologised on behalf of his colleague and called on Prophet Oduro himself to come out and apologise to the President.
“Frankly, Evangelist Kofi Oduro did not speak well. The president in his address only sought to urge Ghanaians to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions and protocols as the leader of the country and its spiritual father. The presidency is a very high position that deserves reverence for which reason you should not seek to denigrate it,” he stated.
“Sometimes what you are saying can be the truth, but your approach determines whether people can take it or reject it. How you package your message will let people pay attention to you. But you don’t come shouting all over the place. Genuine communication is not shouting and that is a feature of a lot of great people in this world,” he stated.
To Prophet Oduro, Bishop Salifu said “You owe the President an apology for calling him a hypocrite and for raining curses on him. The Christian council, the charismatic council and the Pentecostal council should have by now condemned him for his actions. They should call him so we teach him how to talk like a man of God. He could be telling the truth but he had a bad approach.”
Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for Kpone Katamanso, Hopeson Adorye has blasted Prophet Oduro over his comments and have vowed to deal with him.
