In an interview on Starr FM with Bola Ray, Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah said, "I don’t know what came over him [Obinim] to say these things. It’s been backlashed, it’s been criticised, people are making fun not only of him, [but] of all of us as it were.

"I feel ashamed and the question is: Who is bringing the preacher to book in our nation? Who is ensuring that before you mount the pulpit and you grab a microphone to talk to people, and lead people, you so qualify, you are trained for it and you are licensed to do that.

"Should we be hanging at the back of freedom of worship to… as it were destroy their lives? When we have such people leading people, you can as well tell where the followers are heading."

He noted that it is difficult to regulate the activities of the church since a lot of the men of God are "freelancers", stressing most of these clergies "must be made to belong to one of these council overseeing bodies."
