The leader of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has commended the wife of former vice president Matilda Amissah Arthur for speaking her mind out as she read her tribute to the late husband.
In her tribute to the late husband, Kwesi Amissah Arthur, the former second lady did not mince words as she expressed shock over the number of people who had shown her family love given the wonderful tributes dished out by the same people she claimed to have constantly vilified and maligned her husband when he was alive.
“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 know you.”
Many considered her out outburst as unfortunate and not the right platform to attack her opponents.
But countering the diverse reactions, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has backed the words of Mrs Amissah-Arthur stating that the former second lady did not err in her tribute considering the contradictory attitude Ghanaians exhibit towards the living and the dead.
Justifying her heated posture, he noted that Ghanaians are fond of spewing lies and criticizing one another but in times of mourning the narrative takes a different turn.
