The founder of the Action Chapel International Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams has described Ghanaians as petty people.
According to him, that explains the numerous suspicions of his political bias over the years.
Speaking to Bola Ray on Starr Chat Wednesday, the influential preacher, who is largely perceived as the father of the charismatic faith in Ghana, said he maintains cordial relationship with presidents because he is required to do so as a pastor.
“I am not NDC or NPP, and I have stopped talking about such things because people will believe what they want to believe. The Bible makes it a command to pray for all that is in authority in order for us to have peace on the land. I have been told anytime NPP is in office, they said I am NPP. When President Kufuor came to office they told him I was NDC. They told him I was a friend of Rawlings.
“So one time I met Kufuor and we were chatting and it came up and I said ‘yes I am a friend of President Rawlings but I am not NDC’ and some people also went to tell President Rawlings that your friend is now NPP, so they keep doing that to me,” he bemoaned.
He nonetheless said he is not bothered by such criticisms because he has grown to understand the psyche of Ghanaians.
“If you understand the psyche of your people, it is who we are; Ghanaians, we are very petty people compared to others. And we dwell on pettiness, pettiness kills purpose. And so I just allow people to talk. When President came into office they went to lie to him that I am NPP and all. And the only person who stood up and defended me was former President John Mahama. He told them this man is a man of God and will pray for whoever is in charge so leave him alone,” he recounted.
