Kweku Baako, Editor-in-chief of the Crusading Guide newspaper, has lashed out at Pastor TB Joshua for the prophecy he made earlier on a looming terror attack on Ghana and Nigeria. According to him the pastor adopted a reckless means to communicate such sensitive ‘prophecy’ to the public.
Kweku Baako who spoke on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ show, said that if indeed there is going to be an attack, the prophet could have adopted a more professional way of putting out the information. He regarded the whole incident as “prophetic scaremongering’.
The Nigerian prophet and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor TB Joshua had during his Sunday service on April 10, said that there are looming terror attacks on Ghana and Nigeria. He had asked his congregation to pray for the two countries. The ‘prophecy’ though controversial, had left Ghanaians in panic, with different security agencies including the police assuring safety to the people.
The Ghana Police Service had issued a statement on Monday assuring the Ghanaian public that joint security forces have taken adequate measures to resist any possible attack. The Police said it is taking the prophecy serious despite its contentious nature.
Considering the state in which the news left Ghanaians, Baako frowned at the manner in which the prophet threw the bombshell. Though he emphasized he had no intention of undermining or demeaning the prophet, he however, maintained the prophecy only caused fear among the people.
Speaking generally, Mr Kweku Baako called on other pastors to adopt more professional methods when letting out such sensitive information. He encouraged them to handle such situations more carefully in subsequent situations because, even though they have good intentions, the manner in which it is done may cause problems.
