Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., says he never wants to live on earth like Dr. Mensah Otabil, General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), who he claims, easily chickens out when confronted with certain pronouncements he's made.

Speaking on Radio Gold on Saturday, Mr. Pratt, who disclosed that two of his brothers are Priests, refuted media reports that he accused the ICGC General Overseer of suffering from high fever. He however, acknowledged saying the source of Dr. Otabil’s recent premonition about the destiny of the country may not be from God.

“I have never said that Pastor Otabil is suffering from high fever. I’ve never said that. I’ve never said that all Priests are suffering from high fever. How can I say that? Two of my brothers are Priests. I come from the home of Priests…So, I cannot say that,” he stated firmly.

Noting down some previous remarks made by the renowned Man of God where he (Dr. Otabil) could not come out boldly to defend his words when confronted, he questioned the source of Dr. Mensah’s admonition to the nation to pray.

“What I am saying is that I am not able to tell whether Pastor Mensah Otabil’s feel or prophecy is coming from God. Unfortunately, I am not like Mensah Otabil, I don’t run away from my words. When I say something I stand by it…I have never run away from my words,” he averred.

Mr Pratt, who stopped short of ‘swearing’ never in his lifetime to seek divine help from any religious leader who tend to delude the congregation, vowed to only solicit assistance from religious leaders who are honest, and from “a Pastor who can stand by his words; a Pastor who does not seek to profit from the anxieties of people. I want to need the services of a Pastor who loves his country, who is not partisan. I want to seek assistance one day…from a Pastor whose mission is not to amass wealth, from a Pastor whose true mission is to be like Christ.”
