Yamoah Ponkoh Blasts ‘Hypocrite’ Pastors
CONTROVERSIAL POLITICIAN, Afrifa Yamoah Ponkoh, has descended heavily on pastors in the country, labeling some of them as ‘hypocrites’.
According to him, pastors in the country, who were very critical of the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, had become silent ever since the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government captured political power.
“Where are the pastors in Ghana, who were always talking about national issues when Mr. Mahama and the NDC were in political office?
“I am asking, where are the wise men, who frequently found fault with the decisions and policies of the NDC government, few months ago?”
Yamoah Ponkoh, who is a top member of the NDC in Kumasi, accused the pastors of hypocrisy.
“I don’t know what has changed because all the pastors in the country have been very silent on national issues lately”, he said on Nhyira FM.
“Prof Martey and the rest, who constantly lashed at Mr. Mahama, please where are you now?”, he asked, adding that the hypocrisy must stop now.
Yamoah Ponkoh said he was surprised pastors are mute over investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw’s latest work, which he alleged had dented NPP’s image.
According to him, GFA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi’s comments that he is very close to the president, should not be swept under the carpet.
Hhe also called on the security agencies to probe the relationship between the president and the beleaguered GFA president.
