Accra, Oct. 04, GNA – The Ghana Pentecostal and
Charismatic Council (GPCC), has called on Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, to
retract and issue an apology to Apostle General Sam Korankye Ankrah, for
spreading falsehood on him in a video he circulated in the media.
In the press statement signed by Rev. Prof
Paul Frimpong-Manso, President of the GPCC and ten other members of the
Executive Council and copied to GNA, said “we have noted with grave concern
video recordings circulating on various media platforms depicting verbal
attacks including falsehoods by Rev. Owusu Bempah on its 1st Vice
President, the Apostle General Sam Korankye Ankrah, over what the former,
considers an attack against him, in recent teachings by the Apostle General in
his church on “Prophecies, Projections, Predictions, Manipulations and
According to the statement, Rev. Owusu Bempah
in the said video, used some unprintable words and total falsehoods on the Most
Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah.
It said Rev. Owusu Bempah himself admitted
that the Apostle General did not mention his name in his teachings, therefore,
GPCC was at a loss as to why Rev. Owusu Bempah, thought the Apostle General was
referring to him.
GPCC, upon its own investigations as a
Council, has noted that all the allegations of bleaching and lewdness levelled
against the Apostle General were blatant falsehoods.
“The Apostle General has not resided in or
attended any of the places and schools Rev. Owusu Bempah mentioned in his
reaction. Those who know the Apostle General’s family, know that three out of
his four children are fair.
“Does it mean that, he injects and gives
tablets to his children also to give them their fair colour? As for the
accusation of sexual impropriety, that must be a figment of Rev. Owusu Bempah’s
imagination, while admitting that the Apostle General is human, we the
leadership of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council can vouch for his
sexual and moral integrity and therefore advised Rev. Owusu Bempah to name or
produce the many girlfriends, that he claims the Apostle General is keeping”.
According to GCPP, “as Rev. Owusu Bempah
himself said in his reaction, he should rather be picking issues with the
journalists and media houses who decided to post his picture alongside the
Apostle General’s teaching videos.
“The Apostle General has no hands at all in
those posts and publications and we wish to point out that GPCC and its
honourable National Executive Council (NEC) members have no personal grudges
against Rev. Owusu Bempah and would not allow anybody to unjustifiably sling
mud against any of its members”.
