The founder of Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has said Ghana will likely be disadvantaged in its maritime maritime dispute with its western neighbour Ivory Coast, if the country does not pray.

According to him, there is a trap laid for Ghana in the case.

“…That thing, I keep talking talking talking and people are not hearing; they’ll wait till somebody from another country prophesies, then they start running. That borderline dispute, there is something in it, and if we don’t pray, Ghana will be disadvantaged by the verdict that will come out if we don’t do something and find out who the lawyers representing Ghana are, and look into that thing. There is some trap in it. Watch it. You write it down,” he prophesied to his congregation on Sunday April 24.

He said he had called on some men of God, including Bishop Titi-Ofei, Bishop James Saah and Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofie, among others, for 12-hour daily prayers starting May 2, where they will pray fervently concerning the dispute.

The maritime dispute ensued in 2014 when Ghana hauled the Ivory Coast before the  International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea over the latter’s claim of ownership of parts of the oil and gas-rich Cape Three Points.

Cote d’Ivoire has up to April 4, 2016, to file its counter-memorial as to why it should be declared the owner of disputed oilfields and adjoining seabed.

Ghana will on July 4, 2016, submit a reply to Cote d’Ivoire’s counter-memorial, while Cote d’Ivoire is expected to file a rejoinder on October 4, 2016.

Oral hearing of the maritime border dispute between the two countries will commence in February 2017.
