The Founder of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim is funding the construction of a major road in Kumasi.
The road is from Kenyasi to Bosore, where Obinim has a church, is costing the popular preacher millions of cedis.
In a video sighted on Tindstar GH TV, Obinim explained the decision to bankroll the construction of the road, which he said was in terrible shape.
The bishop said although he often used the road once or twice in a week, God touched his heart to fix it.
“In fact, the road from Kenyasi to Bosore is not good at all. It’s a very, very bad road. It’s really a terrible road.
“In Ghana, one of our major problems is bad roads, but it’s not everything we can leave for the government to do. So, God touched my heart to construct the road,” he said in the Twi language.Obinim said work on the project was progressing steadily, noting he had finished the first phase, which involved leveling the road and constructing gutters along it.
The second phase, which involved tarring the road, was continuing, he said.
Touching on what he said was the huge cost involved in the project, the bishop said the gutters along the side of the road and two bridges on the road had been very costly to build.He said after completing the gutter, he bought more than 1000 trips of sand for over GH? 1 million.
Obinim said although the cost of the project continued to rise, no one living in the area had offered to assist him.He said: “There are many wealthy men living in Bosore.
Some are MPs; some are assemblymen; some are chiefs; some are even queen mothers. Yet, none of them has come to me to say, ‘Bishop’ or ‘Angel, take one cedi to aid the construction of the road'”.
Obinim, therefore, appealed to his church members and the public to donate towards the construction of the road.The bishop, who recently claimed the ability to go into the spiritual realm to steal money and then convert it into physical cash, said in the video that he had chosen not to use spiritual funds for the project because he wanted the public to share in its blessings.
“given the huge cost involved in the project, I going to need your support.
I could go the spiritual realm to take money and transfer it into physical for the construction of the road, but if I do that, you won’t get blessings,” he said, urging people to donate at least 100 cedis to the cause.
Obinim has carved reputation for himself as a controversial person and his most recent videos have all deepened that notion.One was when he claimed that President Nana Akufo-Addo will lose the presidential seat if he denies ever seeing him in his dreams.
Earlier, he had launched an attack on Prophet Nigel Gaisie over the latter's trending revelation that he saw Obinim in heaven in a vision.
According to Obinim, Nigel's revelation was childish and does not make sense to him but looking at this new video, it is very different from the usual Obinim we know and he must be commended for his efforts.
