Koku Anyidoho, the Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has stated that Rev Mensa Otabil of International Central Gospel Church should go and live in the Zoo–following the man of God’s recent comment that he prefers watching animals to watching Ghanaian TV.
In an interview with GhanaWeb, Koku Anyidoho called Mensa Otabil a hypocrite and parasite.
According to the NDC executive member, Otabil was abreast with news in Ghana when the NDC was in power and he was constantly highlighting the state of the nation as bad in his preaching.
But since the NPP, a party the man of God is said to be in bed with came into power, he is suddenly claiming not to even be interested in the reports of Ghanaian media–just so he wouldn’t have to preach about the widespread problems at the NPP.
Koku Anyidoho said “suddenly today some pastors say that now they watch animals. It’s animals that they watch, they’re prepared to watch Antelopes and Giraffes…Yes, you’ll watch more animals.”
He added:“…if NDC is in power that one you listen to human beings to prepare your sermon but when NPP is in power and they are doing horrible things because you cannot preach those sermons you are watching animals, they should go and live in the zoo. He should actually go and be preaching his sermons in the zoo to animals. Hypocrites and parasites”.
