A former deputy general secretary of the opossoition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has slammed the Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam Nartey George, over a religion-tainted attack on Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
He took a swipe at him for referring to Dr. Bawumia as a “religious prostitute,” alleging that he publicly appears in both churches and mosques all for political gain.
The MP is said to have made the remarks on Accra-based Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show on November 7.
Mr. Anyidoho commenting on the matter in a series of tweets slammed the lawmaker saying he had no right to determine someone’s religious affiliation.
“Let Sam George go and burn the sea. If he likes he can insult all the men of God it won’t make his candidate become President automatically. Ghana belongs to all shades of Ghanaians and not only some pea-brained Ghanaians.
“Since Sam George has decided to own God & determine who is a Christian or not, I ask; why did his supposed Christian, John Mahama, consciously disband all the prayer groups in the Castle & also cancelled the National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving instituted by President Mills?” he said.
He added there is no law in Ghana that forbids individuals from visiting or worshiping in both Christian and Muslim places of worshi.
He asked Sam George to focus on his political issues and refrain from insulting the Vice President’s faith.
“I am a devout Christian, will graduate from Trinity Theological Seminary on 11/11/2023. Which part of the Church doctrine says a Christian should not visit a Muslim cleric and Vice versa? People don’t understand Church doctrine and disgracing themselves with warped theories.
“La e lala! Listen to this guy. So, he wants a President who will be a tribal religious bigot – loving some and hating some? So, he is now insulting the Church of Pentecost for making Dr. Bawumia an, Associate? Did Christ not come to win souls? Ei NDC: we are now insulting God too?” he added.
