After about five minutes of disruption, the congregation’s disapproval of the incident reportedly forced Mahama to shake hands with Rev. Bempah.
Narrating the incident to his congregation when he got to his own church, Rev. Owusu Bempah who’s the Founder of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International said: “…So the Pastor led me and just as I approached ex-President Mahama he stood up and just as I was about to shake hands with him, one of his bodyguards prevented me from shaking hands with him.
But the ex-President rebuked him, and he said Reverend come and greet me and he shook hands with me. If grace allows you to come, sin cannot stop you.”
