The Glorious Word Power Ministries International has refuted claims attributed to the founder of the church Reverend Owusu Bempah that the National Chief Imam visits him for spiritual protection and instruction.
The church said such reporting is false and malicious.
According to a press release issued on Thursday, January 5, the publication is intended to sour the cordial connection between Sheikh Ousman Nuhu Sharubutu and Reverend Owusu Bempah.
The church insists Isaac Owusu Bempah never claimed that the National Chief Imam visited him to inquire about his fate.
“We wish to state emphatically that Apostle Dr Isaac Owusu Bempah has not at any time claimed that the Chief Imam visits it consults him to look into his destiny.
“The publication was clearly actuated by malice, a desire for profit, sensationalism and calculated to disrupt the peaceful and cordial relationship between the Chief Imam and Apostle Dr Isaac Owusu Bempah,” the church said in the statement.
Meanwhile, the office of the National Chief Imam has reacted to the issue.
Earlier, according to the National Chief Imam’s office, he does not seek spiritual protection from “charlatans on the pulpit.”
As a result, it requested the Christian community and the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to advice Reverend Owusu Bempah from issuing any more contentious and erroneous prophecies concerning Shiekh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu.“We wish to state that all the claims of Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah contain no iota of truth, but represent the figment of his own imagination.
“Undoubtedly, Shiekh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu is a champion of interfaith harmony and peaceful co-existence. But he does not seek protection and prosperity from charlatans on the pulpit.”
“Conclusively, we stand – at all times – for interfaith solidarity and national unity, as we contribute our quota to the building of a prosperous democratic state of diverse religious communities.
