Founder of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Dr. Lawarence Tetteh has made some damning comments about the Ga people in the country.
Speaking in an interview, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh linked the abject poverty of Ga’s and suffering they go through to the neglect of God for an idol.
Backing his claim with some historical facts, the televangelist said but for the foolishness of Ga’s they would have been successful and overly rich.
He said, “I say this thing with pain. The reason why the Ga people are suffering today is because we left that God. You can quote me anywhere. Look at the sea God gave us. God gave us the sea so fish is not a problem, we have land, cassava won’t be a problem. In fact, Accra people should be one of the richest people. They gave us the big sea with oil in the sea but we left the God who made a way.”
According to him, if one traces the history of the Ga people, it would be realised that Ga’s had no idols to worship but the generation that came after their forefathers indoctrinated the worship of other gods, which has dragged their blessings.
Dr. Lawrence Tetteh indicated that Ga’s while in Dahomey was introduced to lesser gods and their ancestors insisted on having a God who reigns above all, but the current generation has rejected God and rather focusing on the idols, hence the reason for their suffering.
“Any Ga person who falls into a fetish trance, they don’t speak Ga language. The Wulomie of the Ga people are supposed to be priests except that the foolishness of the Ga people so they forgot our God. The last time I preached it in James Town, some of the boys said I’ve insulted them and the Chief Priest came on the podium and said I was speaking the truth. We have no gods, The Gas have no gods, we believe in Jehovah and all of a sudden, we started following everything. So, when they were captured in Dahomey and they were introduced to other gods, they said no,” he disclosed.
