The leader and founder of Glorious Waves International Church says President John Mahama does not know how to run the country while his Finance Minister, Seth Terpker, is blockheaded.
In an Interview on Atinka FM’s mid-morning show ‘Adwumaa OO’ with Roman Fada on Friday, Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi mentioned that the President’s inability to run the country is because he does not have the ‘blueprint of the country’ to enable him to govern efficiently.
According to the pastor, he is still baffled by the fact that the President still has such a blockheaded person as his Minister of Finance. He added that the minister lacks ideas and that he is obsessed with imposing taxes on Ghanaians.
He explained that he was willing to take Seth Terpker on and school him any day. “He is taxing everything, and now he wants to tax our pension,” he charged.
According to Pastor Emmanuel Kobi, God’s country like Ghana does not require “IMF loans or whatsoever to thrive,” adding that the rich resources of the country can be used efficiently to generate enough revenue which can sustain the country.
“The President and his ministers have placed the country on autopilot,” he alleged.
According to him, politicians in the country think they are above everybody, and they insult and attack pastors and other people who advise at the least opportunity. He made reference to attacks and insults that some politicians heap on Dr. Mensah Otabil when he expresses an opinion on a topical issue.
He advised the NPP and the NDC to stop the needless attacks on people who offer constructive criticisms.
