I will cause upset in NPP presidential primary – Ken Agyapong

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin Central Con­stituency in the Central Region, Mr Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has assured that he is poised to spring a surprise in the upcoming presidential primaries of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) despite being the underdog.

According to him, like David who was considered undeserving to be the king of Israel by Samuel when he was asked to crown a new king for Israel after Saul had been disowned by God, he would be ordained to rescue the people of Ghana.

“If you consider the list of persons who have lined up for the contest, indeed I am the under­dog, but like the children of Jesse, when Samuel wanted to anoint a new king for Israel, he considered the stature of all the children, but David.

However, God had his own plans and that was David,” he emphasised.

Mr Agyapong disclosed this when he visited Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah at the Glorious Word Power Ministries interna­tional at South Odorkor in Accra on Sunday.

He said he was more than con­fident, the fortunes of the country would be turned round under his watch as a president, stressing that; “No matter where the country finds itself or the difficulty we are in as a country, I will turn things round.”

The MP however, called on the church and Ghanaians in general to remember him in prayers as the battle was not an easy one.

“What I require of you is your prayers and support. I tell you that with your support and prayers we will change the fortunes of this country no matter what the diffi­culties or challenges we are going through now,” he emphasised.

Touching on his crusade against false prophets in the country, he said it was intend­ed to drum home the need for Christians to be weary of such prophets and pastors in the system.

He said even though some have referred to him as “an­ti-christ” for waging the crusade, he was not, stressing that “I believe in God and I also know there are genuine men of God in the system, so my crusade was not to attack Christendom but the false prophets in the system.

Mr Agyapong said just as Elijah revealed the Baal proph­ets and destroyed them so was his crusade intended to achieve.

On his part, the General Overseer of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Prophet Owusu Bempah, ex­pressed his gratitude for the visit and assured that he would con­tinue to pray for Mr Agyapong to realise his heart’s desires.

He noted issues of spiritu­ality could not be discounted in any human endeavour, stressing that “The spiritual realm dictates our physical being. It is import­ant to seek the face of God in everything we do.”

Quoting from 2nd Kings Chapter 3:12-18, he said con­sulting God through his proph­ets was the right thing to do since the only means by which the physical could be conquered was through the spiritual realm.
