God is behind approval of my nomination – Oti bless

Member of Parliament for Nkwanta North, John Oti Bless, has welcomed Parliament’s approval of his nomination as deputy Minister for Local Government and Rural Development.

The Minority in Parliament had earlier called for the suspension of his approval over comments he made against Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood on Accra-based Montie FM in July 2016.

Mr. Bless Oti, also the Nkwanta North Member of Parliament, accused the Chief Justice of “conniving” with the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in an attempt to reverse the election results in 2008 and in 2012 among other allegations.

But Parliament on Wednesday finally approved his nomination after the Speaker called for a vote of his nomination.

Speaking to Citi News hours after the approval, Oti Bless said his nomination was divine.

“It is a great day and it is a day of praise to God for the great things he has done. God is a true God that has to be praised every day and everytime. It is the work of the Lord. God has time for everyone.”

He further indicated that he will give off his best.

“What I can say is to give thanks to God and within this short period I will do my best and whatever is in me will be brought out for the public to see what can be done.”
