Perhaps to cow him from exposing the rot in society, Right Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, claims he was approached by certain politicians with “fat envelopes” and a promise that they would give him a plush home if he could tame his tongue.

Right Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, a former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has revealed that he was approached by certain government officials with $100,000 cash with sweet promises that it would be topped up with a brand new four-wheel drive and a furnished swimming pool house at Trasacco.

But the earthly gifts, according to the former Moderator, can never stop him from speaking the truth.

Politicians have tried all means to muzzle me. They come with bribes, envelopes as fat as $100, 000. Politicians came to my house with fat envelopes and also with the promises that if you keep quiet, we would give you a house at Trassaco with swimming pool”.

But during such engagements with the officials, Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey claims it hurts him he couldn’t inflict any wounds on them for the evil they plotted against him.

Those people were lucky I didn’t have big dogs in my house; else I would have released the dogs to bite them for the whole world to ask me why I have been wicked to them.”

Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, has constantly been branded a member of the New Patriotic Party by several members of the ruling National Democratic Congress for speaking his mind on issues that affect the nation.

A known critic of the governing Mahama-led administration, he has on several occasions attacked the NDC government on various national issues.

He recently attracted abuse from members of the NDC after he promised that the Presby Church will help Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo build Ghana if he wins the presidency in December.

But he insists the attacks have had little impact on his personality and explains that he has been able to stand them because he knows “it is only the church that will address meaningfully the canker going on in the country.”

He boldly stated that he wouldn’t be cowed by any politician. “They have tried all means to muzzle me, they couldn’t and I tell you they can’t. I will speak today and tomorrow. I pay high taxes that cause my stomach to turn”, he said.

Warning To Babies With Sharp Teeth

Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey also warned the “babies with sharp teeth” politicians in the NDC  not to attempt to malign him again.

According to him, the young politicians in the NDC don’t pay taxes and are fed with the stomach churning taxes he pays to government. 

He ended by stating that the Presbyterian Church is the oldest church in Ghana “so we can’t sit down for newer churches and newer politicians to come and destroy us”.

‘Babies with sharp teeth’ was a description coined by Founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings at the party’s Special Delegates Conference in Kumasi on August 30th, 2012, where he challenged President John Dramani Mahama to ‘throw out’ of his government some individuals who spew vitriol at the members of the public; including even their colleague government appointees.
