The International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) has, through a statement, clarified that its founder, Pastor Mensa Otabil, has neither chastised nor attacked fellow Christian cleric Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah over the latter’s recent streak of doomsday prophecies on New Year’s Eve.

In a statement issued on Thursday, 3 January 2018 by ICGC to clear the air concerning a recent publication in the media which pitted an old sermon delivered by Pastor Otabil – in which he condemned doomsday prophecies – against the recent prophecies pronounced by Rev Owusu Bempah, the church said it has “noted with grave concern, a recent publication on Ghanaweb.com that has since been republished on a number of web portals.

“The said article juxtaposed a video excerpt of Pastor Mensa Otabil’s 34th-anniversary message preached on Sunday, 4 March 2018 against a recent prophecy given by Rev Owusu Bempah.

“While the thoughts expressed in the video clearly reflect his perspective on the subject matter, pitting the two together as was done in the publication creates an unfortunate impression that Pastor Otabil’s comments were directly targeted at Rev Owusu Bempah. It is important to state that Pastor Otabil has made no comment in relation to the prophecies made by Rev Owusu Bempah”.

Meanwhile, ICGC said Pastor Mensa Otabil also condemns the recent vandalisation of the Odorkor branch of Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah’s Glorious Word and Power Ministry International church by some irate Muslim youth over one of his prophecies, which predicted the death of the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu.

The angry young men, who demanded an unqualified apology to the Muslim community from Rev Owusu Bempah, vandalised his billboards and parts of the church building on Wednesday, 2 January 2019.


They have, via a short video that has been circulated widely on social media, threatened to do worse if Rev Owusu Bempah fails to apologise to Muslims, despite a call on them by the National Chief Imam to forgive the pastor.

Pastor Mensa Otabil, according to the statement, “Would also like to take this opportunity to join several well-meaning Ghanaians who have condemned the violent attacks on the sacred place of worship of Rev Owusu Bempah”.

“It is his position that violence must never be used to settle our differences as Ghanaians under any circumstances”, the statement signed by Executive Pastor, Rev Albert Ocran, said.
