Musician Mzbel has once again launched a scathing attack on Nigel Gaisie, founder and leader of True Word Prophetic Fire Ministries for circulating a video clip of his prophecy about Ghana having a female Vice President between 2020 and 2024.
As former President John Dramani Mahama readies to announce his running mate for the 2020 presidential elections, speculations are rife former Minister of Education, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang will be given the nod.
In a video clip said to have been recorded on December 31, 2018, Prophet Nigel Gaisie who has on several occasions been subjected to the vehement backlash by the songstress was seen and heard prophesying that Ghana’s Vice President between 2020 and 2024 will be a female.
“Ghana will produce a female Vice President,” he said with utmost confidence.
“The hand of the Lord came on me, and I entered into the Eastern Region. I saw a woman who was once upon a time an Attorney General… The woman has a connection with the Volta Region. The Lord took my spirit to the Fante land and I saw these two women – one from Fante and the other had a Togo-Voltarian background holding the National flag of Ghana. Sayeth the Lord, between 2020 and 2024, Ghana will produce a female Vice President.”
In response to the development, Mzbel in a Facebook post labeled the prophet a liar. She alleged that the said revelation was actually a communication from the Chief Executive Officer of defunct Ideal Finance Company Limited, Nii Kotei Dzani.
“You knew about this Female Vice President because Nii Kotei Dzani told you,” she fumed. “Tell your blind followers to stop sharing this video cos some of us knew this long time! Foolish filthy liar! Mallam Shauna will deal with you at the right time!”
Two names have emerged as the most likely options to partner the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Mahama, as he officially unveils his running mate for the 2020 presidential elections on Monday, July 6, 2020.
Although there are at least two other possible candidates for the running mate slot, Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, and a former Director-General of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC), Dr. Isaac Bannerman Nii Moi Thompson have been tipped as the most likely options.
Professor Opoku-Agyemang has however never been an Auditor General. Betty Mould-Iddrisu, Ghana’s first female Attorney General, and Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong who served as Attorney General under the Mahama-led administration are not in the race.
Update: Mahama has settled on Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang as his running mate for the 2020 elections. Announcing the news, the NDC flagbearer in a tweet said: “The @OfficialNDCGh, this afternoon, unanimously, endorsed my nomination of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as my Running Mate for the December 2020 election. She is God-fearing, a distinguished scholar, a conscientious public servant & a role model.”
