Popular pastor, Mensa Otabil has reacted to the lawsuit over their roles in the collapse of Capital Bank in 2017.

Pastor Mensa Otabil, the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), and 15 other shareholders and directors of the now-defunct Capital Bank were dragged to court over their roles in the collapse of the bank in 2017.

The aforementioned were sued by Messrs Vish Ashiagbor and Eric Nana Nipah, who both work with accounting and auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

In response to the lawsuit has Otabil urged his congregation not to equate the suit to evidence of wrongdoing because it is simply somebody’s ‘opinion’ and version of events.

Under intense public pressure, the pastor earlier appeared in church with a three-worded sentence repeated thrice; “God is good, God is good, God is good”,, a response that sparked social media subscribers into frenzied repetition partly in friendly jest and other is outright derision.

But in a new video obtained by Ghpage.com, the man of God delivering a sermon at his church stated that: “Well, as you know, a couple of things have happened and you’ve heard quite a few of them, You are Ghanaians so you hear stuff”

“I know people have all kinds of questions and so on but first of all, I can’t explain anything to you. I can’t because I’m in court so we will the process to continue and hopefully, the full truth will be known”

“There’s space for peoples opinion but when you go court, you are not just dealing with people’s opinion, you are dealing with facts so it’s going to be interesting”

“The only thing I want to say briefly is that a suit or when somebody suits you, it is not an evidence neither is it judgement, it is just somebody’s opinion and there will be defence and other things so follow closely how things will proceed and how they end”

“The last time I said God is good, people didn’t like it, I don’t know whether to say God is good this time but I can definitely say the devil is bad,” he jokingly said.
