The founder and leader of Worldwide Miracle Outreach Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has thrown his weight behind the wife of late vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, Mrs. Matilda Amissah Arthur after she broke protocol by ranting whiles reading her husbands tribute.
The burial of the late former second gentleman of the land was held yesterday at the Accra International conference center(AICC) amidst tears from sympathizers who had gathered there to pay their last respect.
During the turn of Mad. Matilda Amissah to read her tribute to her late husband, she expressed shock at the number of Ghanaians who have insulted and leveled a countless allegation against him whiles he was serving as vice-president but these same people now turn their backs and say good things about him and she wonders if this is truly Ghana.
“Over the last few weeks, I have been amazed at the number of people who have come to show appreciation and I ask myself: ‘Is this Ghana?’ Are all these people in Ghana because of the maligning, the lies, the treachery, the wickedness, the mischievousness?”
“I ask myself: Is this Ghana? I ask myself is this my own husband that you have come to say tribute to? And today, I ask the same question: Did people really know my husband? Did they take time to know him? The false accusations, the lies the maligning, did they know him? My dearest, me, your children, we knew you,” part of Mrs. Amissah-Arthur’s tribute reads.”
Her tribute has since become the talk of the town as it has been met with mix reactions with many describing it as very harsh considering the occasion and the personalities who were in attendance to mourn the former vice president.
But in reacting to these, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh stated that the former second did not wrong considering the fact that Ghanaians appreciate the dead more than the living.
The preacher noted that Ghanaians are fond of spewing lies and criticizing one another but in times of mourning the narrative takes a different turn.
“In the culture of Ghana, people’s credibility, people’s testimony people’s hard-won reputation are undermined because of this day and age of social media and radio but we should also come to that place where we can appreciate people and give them living testimonies while they are still alive.”
“As a matter of fact, you can see the outburst of his wife this morning, and she was genuine. If you look at all the negatives that have been said about this man and now people are sitting back now giving tributes, it’s sad. We should learn to give people tribute while they are still alive,” Lawrence Tetteh said.
