The General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church, Pastor Mensa Otabil has incurred the wrath of the staff of defunct Capital Bank for sympathising with them.

According to them, at this trying moment all they need is their severance package not prayers from their Board Chairman.

Pastor Otabil broke his silence on his role leading to the collapse of Capital Bank under his leadership as Board Chair.

In a statement issued in Accra Tuesday, he said during his non-executive role as Board Chairman of Capital Bank, everything he did was in the best interest of all stakeholders.

The ICGC General Overseer added that he was concerned about the wellbeing of the staff but said he will continue to pray for them.

“My foremost concern, as has been the case over the past year, is for the well-being of those who lost their jobs and those who may have been adversely affected in any way as a result of these developments. My heart goes out to them and to their dependents. I continue to pray for God’s guidance and sustenance as they navigate the course of their lives,” he stated in the nine-point statement.

But on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday, former employees, Raymond Addei Danquah and Philip Yawson said they don’t need his prayers.

They explained that for the past one year, it’s been hell catering for their wives and children.

Raymond Addei Danquah who was Deputy Head of Digital Banking said he now grills pork to support his family.

He noted that the payers and sympathies of Pastor Mensa Otabil will not change their current situation.

“We don’t need his sympathises and prayers; it won’t change anything. Even workers of Capital Bank who are members of ICGC have not heard anything from the church” Raymond stated.

He said they have petitioned President Akufo-Addo but are yet to receive a response.
