Otabil is a threat to national security - NDC

Pastor Mensah Otabil

This follows Pastor Otabil's call for Ghanaians to demand a better government at a recent book launch.

“We can’t just be happy because a road has been tarred. We can’t just be happy that we didn’t have electricity now we have electricity. We can’t be happy with minimals”, he said, adding: “…citizens must have an appetite for better,” Pastor Otabil had said.

Reacting to his comments, the Communications Director of the NDC, Solomon Nkansah described the man of God as a security threat and only operating to suit the whims and caprices of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).


"...What this man has said is very frightening. It amounts to inciting the public against the government. Under the guise of the Bible, he says all sorts of things against those he is not in support of. But you know what; God is bigger than him and so whenever he says such things people don’t listen to him. I am ashamed and scandalized as a Christian that a man of God can speak like Pastor Mensah Otabil has done,” he told Accra-based Kasapa FM.

“These are the men who are a threat to national security and co-existence. Because you don’t support the NDC government, you are inciting the public against the government. During the NPP regime he didn’t preach this way, he rather preached with the Ghana flag, why is he preaching this way now. The last time it was generational thinkers, today it’s about revolt against minority rule. We can continue to countenance such worrying conducts of this Pastor," the Communications Director of the NDC added.
