Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has cautioned Christians against judging fellow cleric Pastor Mensa Otabil of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) vis-à-vis the role he played as Board Chairman in the collapse of Capital Bank.
The Bank went bust in August 2017 and was taken over by GCB Bank with the blessing of the central bank.
According to an investigative report, Capital Bank misapplied some GHS620 million liquidity support the Bank of Ghana gave it, thus, the collapse.
Speaking on the matter for the first time, the founder of Action Chapel International, said: “I heard about the situation with Dr Mensa Otabil, I want to caution every Christian: shut your mouth”.
“Number two, the bible says: ‘Judge not that you may not be judged’. So, shut your mouth. Stop talking about things you don’t understanding.
“Somebody asked me: ‘What do you think?’ I said I don’t think anything, I don’t understand, I don’t know the details, so, let the authorities handle the situation, don’t talk, you talk too much, Christians you talk too much.
“Now I’m saying that to Christians, as for unbelievers and the heathen, they have the right to talk, their day will come, but for us Christians, we are under God’s constitution, we do not judge and we don’t judge out own, let the world talk and let the world judge but you don’t join the world to crucify your brother”.
