According to Mr Cudjoe, the attack on the founder of the  International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) is "offensive" because he has not been charged with any crime.

"It is quite offensive to call out a man guilty when he has not been charged with any crime. Please stop attacking Pastor Otabil. Hopefully, the pastor will solve his issues soon," he said.

 

The central bank collapsed the bank in August 2017 over liquidity challenges.

Pastor Otabil stands accused of supervising the mismanagement of GHC610 relief package to Capital Bank from the Bank of Ghana.

According to the BoG report, the bank's board, chaired by Pastor Otabil, doled out ¢27.5m to a board member for "business promotion.

The board also approved an expenditure of ¢2.6M and $50,000 on “re-branding.”

The board, the report said, also “ratified” a proposal to increase the fees and benefits of directors, including two first and business class air tickets for all members of the board.
