Rev Opambour Ebenezer Adarkwa Yiadom, the General Overseer of Ebenezer Miracle Worship Centre has described an Ashanti Regional Chairman hopeful, Kwabena Owusu Aduomi as a traitor.
According to him, Mr Aduomi’s recent comments about the President and government at large is a sign of betrayal.
Speaking on Prophet 1 Television on Sunday, December 23, he explained that President Akufo-Addo campaigned on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), adding that every well-meaning party faithful must equally support statements he made on the economy during the 2016 elections.
“...I don’t understand why Aduomi publicly disowned Akufo-Addo on national television. It’s not right. I mean it’s so wrong. He was the leader of the NPP during the 2016 election. Whatever statement he made was in the interest of the party. For him to have done that is a sign of bad leadership,” the Nation's Prophet as he is affectionately called said.
Mr Owusu Aduomi, a former NPP Member of Parliament (MP) for Ejisu, has been in the news in recent times following a viral video on social media of the beleaguered politician surprisingly disowning his party (NPP), President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his administration.
His comments, where he openly scorned the NPP government, has angered many party faithfuls including a member of NPP Council of Elders in the Manhyia South Constituency, Richard Adjei Mensah Ofori-Atta aka ‘Tomtom’ who has descended heavily on him, describing his outburst as repulsive.
An aspiring regional chairman, Mr Aduomi stated emphatically that he cannot defend the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo for certain statements he made during the campaign ahead of the 2016 general elections.
According to him, it’s only fair that the president defends his own statements.
On Oyerepa television in Kumasi, the regional chairman hopeful told the host of the morning show:
“You’ll do me no good by asking me to defend statements and comments I didn’t make. It’s Akufo-Addo who said Ghanaians are starving in the abundance of money, I didn’t say that. And so let him defend that when you meet him,- I can’t do that for him. Of course there’s enough money in the country but it’s about how you manage it," he said emphatically.
Prophet Ebenezer attributed the former Ejisu MP's comments to the flagbearership contest between the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Trade Minister Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng.
“Aduomi has a reason for making those statements. Many people don’t know but I know because I’m a prophet. It has to do with the party’s internal elections,- who succeeds Nana Addo after his term. He belongs to a certain faction. If you listen carefully, he was throwing shades at the other faction. I don’t want to delve deep into this but I know people understand what I’m driving at. Greetings to Alan Kyeremanteng," he added.
