Duncan Williams tells Christians Not to join the world to crucify Otabil
Respected preacher, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams has admonished Christians not to join the bandwagon to condemn Pastor Mensa Otabil in his role over the collapse of Capital Bank.
The General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church has been criticized for the collapse of the Bank as report indicts its directors for squandering liquidation support handed them by the central bank to resuscitate the bank.
In a sermon on Sunday, Duncan-Williams urged Christians to abide by the “Constitution of God” and refrain from crucifying Pastor Otabil before official investigations are concluded.
“So shut your mouth. Stop talking about things you don’t understand,” he directed his message to Christians.
Pastor Otabil in response to the public criticism through a statement said he is cooperating with investigators regarding the matter.
But last week Otabil in a sermon remained defiant, cheekily telling his congregation that in spite of what has happened “the Lord is good”!
Some Christians followed it up with #istandwithotabil campaign on social media in solidarity with the pastor and explained, it is about protecting the revered pastor’s honour against ungodly and unsavoury attacks.
But the campaign also attracted harsh comment from a section of the public who believed the campaign was unnecessary as the allegations were being investigated by the relevant state agencies.
“Father, we do not rejoice at the hurt of any one of your children. We commit the whole situation in your care,” the founder of the Action Chapel International prayed for pastor Otabil.
The Bank of Ghana about two weeks ago revoked the licenses of five universal banks, namely, Royal Bank, Construction Bank, Sovereign Bank, Unibank and BEIGE Bank.
According to the central bank, the action was taken due to the inability of some of the banks to meet existing minimum capital requirement.
Some of the troubled banks also faced liquidity issues while others obtained their licenses through dubious means.
In 2017, the licenses of UT Bank and Capital Bank were revoked over similar liquidity issues. It has emerged in a BoG commissioned report that liquidity support funds advanced to the two banks were also misapplied.
