Pastor Mensah Otabil has broken his silence on the takeover of Capital Bank by GBC Bank Limited.
Pastor Otabil, who was the board chairman of the bank, told his congregation Sunday that it was a difficult week for him.
“Monday was a fortunately good day for me. I was fine on Monday. Tuesday was a very bad day for me. Wednesday was a very terrible day. You go through this stuff and you wonder; wow, what a week,” he said.
Pastor Otabil through his firm Otabil and Associates owned 10% shares in Capital Bank as well as the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), which owns 3% shares.
GCB on Tuesday took over the management of Capital Bank and UT Bank after the two banks collapsed.
Preaching on Sunday, Pastor Otabil noted that people who had no right to insult him are now insulting him.
He even went on to suggest that some of those insulting him looked like insult.
You know when people who have no right to insult you, insult you; that is reality.
“You look at the person insulting you and the person, sometimes, himself looks like an insult,” he said.
But out of the abundance of his insult, he is insulting you, so that is reality. Reality is when it is hitting, when all kinds of stuff is hitting, I don’t want to go too much into that …” he added.
