Founder of Prophetic Hill Chapel, Prophet Nigel Gaisie, has implored the court and the authorities to go easy on his colleague pastor, Rev Owusu Bempah.
While speaking in an interview on Okay FM, Prophet Nigel Gaisie called on the government and the court to be considerate toward Prophet Owusu Bempah.
According to him, the ruling NPP government has forsaken their prophet despite his major role in securing victory for the party in the elections.
“NPP should be doing better for their prophet whom they have left to his fate,” Nigel said.
According to him, “we cannot underestimate the impact of Prophet Owusu Bempah in the re-election of Nana Akuffo Addo and Bawumia. We cannot. If historians are writing, nobody can write it off. His impact was monumental. So you cannot do this”.
“I don’t care whoever he has offended, considering what he has done for them that brought them into power. It cannot be commiserated to those whom he has offended. If you weigh the two, I think that his positivity outstands or outshines his negativity. I mean, he has helped you to power whether whichever way he has given you power. Whether we like it or not, for the next 3 years, we are all in hardship. And he was very vocal,” he said.
Prophet Nigel Gaisie has also asked the courts to respect Owusu Bempah as a clergyman and treat him accordingly.
“I am not saying the law should not work. The law has arrested him. Where he was arrested was wrong. He has been locked up in a cell. I feel that they should be gracious enough considering the fact that people do worse things than that, and they are walking.
“So for me, maybe someone would say that Prophet Nigel should speak well. He is a man of God. And I respect the oil upon his life. So I saw that they should have been more gracious, and they should temper justice with mercy,” he concluded.
