The Leader and founder of ICGC, Pastor Mensah Otabil, has never had peace following the constant blasting from NDC Members at him for criticizing Mahama and keeping mute now that Nana Addo is President. Pastor Mensah Otabil was very critical on Mahama and an evidence from 2014 has popped up. A post by Ghana web quoted Otabil of saying that he foresee that the exchange rate is “1 dollar to 10 cedis”. He made that statement when Mahama was President and the country was experiencing a cedi slump or cedi fall under the vigilance of Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur as head of the Economic Management Team.
Mensah Otabil predicted that it was possible for that depreciation to happen under Mahama. The interesting thing is that, #six years after Mahama’s tenure, Ghana is now about to experience that bad exchange rate. That should tell any economist that, the Mahama administration left behind a very strong economy which had very strong fundamentals.
The issue however is, why is Mensah Otabil silent now that his voice is needed the most. His silence has given more room for Ghanaians to think that Mensah Otabil did that all in support of the candidature of Nana Addo as President and nothing else.
It will be more surprising if Mensah Otabil and the other top religious personalities suddenly gain their voice if the National Democratic Congress comes to power again. Also, some Ghanaians have called on Mensah Otabil to return the money he owes Ghanaians or the customers of his collapsed bank.
My opinion is that, there is nothing wrong with criticism of a government when they go wrong. The only problem is when the said critics display a show of partiality and refuses to be consistent with the criticism on the successive governments that follows. Mensah Otabil cannot say that he has not seen the current depreciation of the cedis under the current administration.
