The Founder of Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams said most Ghanaians prefer humble people over bold ones. To him this is one of the reasons people misunderstand Spio-Garbrah
He said this when he was preaching to his congregants on Sunday, November 12, 2017.
“Take somebody like Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, He didn’t go to Oxford, or Princeton or Yale [but] brilliant, misunderstood because in this country when you are a very confident person, people don’t like you.”
“You have to act like ‘humility, humble, I’m very humble, oh yes sir" Duncan Williams added.
He said Ghana is filled with too many hypocrites who do not celebrate success or progress.
“This country, we are hypocrites. We don’t celebrate success and that’s why we don’t attract it because what you despise, you will never attract. We don’t celebrate progress, we don’t celebrate riches. That is the difference between us and the Nigerians and that’s why we lack it. And there are Ghanaians who live better outside than in Ghana. In Ghana they call it ‘humble’,” he said.
Spio-Garbrah, who is a leading member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed his interest in leading the party into the 2020 elections.
He is also a member of the Action Chapel International.
