There is speculation on social media whether John Mahama and the top leadership of the National Democratic Congress are exploiting the ordeal of Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah to ignite an old rivalry between him and Prophet Ebenezer Adarkwa Yiadom, popularly known as Prophet 1.
This is after John Mahama rounded up a segment of his Ashanti Region Thank you tour at a radio and TV station belonging to Prophet 1, a rare development since the former President has never had an interview there whether as President or an opposition figure.
Recently, Prophet 1 and Isaac Owusu Bempah, the Nation’s Prophet clashed over petty “anointing” disagreements leading to the two top pastors slugging it out on who is most powerful.
On Monday, the three-time Presidential Candidate of the NDC was on Radio Mercury for a one-on-one interview before visiting the Manhyia Palace to pay a courtesy call on the Asantehene.
John Mahama, Prof Jane Naana, Asiedu Nketia, Ofosu Ampofo and Andrews Nana Kwasi were pictured with Prophet 1 sharing the moment.
This comes at a time Prophet 1’s archrival Isaac Owusu Bempah is caged in police cells and is expected to be held there for at least 5 more days from today.
The two-day tour of the Region will mark the end of the second phase of his tour, which is meant at expressing gratitude to his supporters and members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the votes in the December 7, 2020 elections.The first phase of the tour began in August with a resumption on Tuesday, September 7 in the Bono East Region.
In the Ashanti Region, former President Mahama’s first port of call was the Ejura Constituency, where he interacted with party faithful at Mfrante and made a donation to party members who had an accident before the 2020 election.
